Need more convincing?  Read on, because this week we’re breaking down the top seven reasons to use a service like Assigned Counsel’s.


  1. Our practice-area specific, experienced temporary attorneys work on your timetable, within your budget.  


Our screening process matches the amount of time needed by the client, with the time billed by the temporary attorney.  We measure in hours per day, days per week and length of overall engagement.  This means there are no billing “surprises,” and the process and direction of work can be monitored by the client.


  1. A robust database of attorney resumes means we have a head start.


With over 40,000 resumes, our database covers all practice areas with attorneys of every skill level.  We are constantly increasing our registry with new attorney candidates.


  1. All of our recruiters are highly experienced attorneys.


Attorneys are best at reviewing resumes and qualifying attorney candidates.  Each of our attorney recruiters has a minimum of 22 years experience as practicing attorneys,  in a wide range of practice areas.


  1. Our temporary attorneys are screened, referenced checked and ready to start work immediately.


We are experts in qualifying attorney candidates – typically within 48 hours of receiving a request.  We understand that corporate lawyers can’t spend valuable time on screening and processing potential temporary attorney candidates, so Assigned Counsel will do it all for you.


  1. Our temporary attorneys serve nationwide.


Our temporary attorneys are flexible based on your needs.  They are available to work on-site in your office or can serve you remotely.


  1. Assigned Counsel provides you with a personal staffing team.


We always provide you with an experienced and tailored selection of professionals who are dedicated to serving you.  Our business managers are available 24/7 to listen to your needs, issues and objectives, while our skilled and experienced recruiting attorneys are sourcing, qualifying and presenting you with the ideal temporary attorney candidate.


  1. Assigned Counsel has been successfully providing temporary attorneys to corporate law departments for over 25 years.


We’ve been in the industry for a long time, so we know what works and what doesn’t.  Our attorney placements will enhance the value of your existing legal services, not replace them.  Our cost-effective temporary attorneys provide supplemental services in line with all budgets.


For these reasons and more, Assigned Counsel is a leader in the temporary attorney staffing industry, and the solution to your legal staffing void.  Are you looking for immediate assistance?  Contact us, and we’ll be happy to discuss how we can support your legal team.
