The 2017 Most Influential Recruiters Ranking List Q & A Section

What kind of legal recruitment firms are found on the list?
The 2017 Most Influential Legal Recruiters List features 250 legal employment agencies. These are the best legal recruitment agencies in terms of influence in America. Unlike the previously offered directory of legal recruiters or the database of legal recruiters provided by other sources, we provide a ranking of the most influential legal staffing agencies. Although we include legal staffing agencies that place attorneys, paralegals, and legal assistants, we only rank the legal placing agencies that focus solely on the law in terms of the legal recruitment firm's website.
Which legal recruitment agencies are the most influential?

Influence extends beyond a legal staffing agency to the legal recruiters ability to reach candidates. The most influential legal recruiters are the legal placement services that candidates are most likely to encounter. Additionally, when an employer wants to hire an attorney, generally, an employer seeks out the best legal recruiters with the influence to reach the candidates. The influence ranking is determined by a number of factors, which are discussed in detail in a separate article.

How did LawCrossing create the legal employment agency ranking list?

After analyzing 250 legal recruitment agencies across the United States, LawCrossing put together the 2017 Most Influential Legal Recruiter List in America based on a series of criteria. We ranked each legal placement firm's level of influence by utilizing more than 20 weighted factors. After months of research, we finalized the factors. The factors vary from the number of years the legal recruitment agency has operated to the use of social media.

2017 Legal Recruiters List Rankings


Gibson Arnold & Associates, Inc. (GAA) was founded in 1981 by entrepreneur Yahne Gibson, who sought to create a more effective process to meet the recruiting needs of the Houston legal community. She developed a business methodology that quickly earned a reputation for quality and professionalism; a reputation that rewarded the company with considerable success in Houston. In 1987, GAA partnered with a major client in the Los Angeles area, which lead to the opening of our Los Angeles office two years later. GAA continued its growth with an expansion into the Denver market in 1992 spearheaded by Melinda Delmonico. The office quickly emerged as a major recruiting force in the Denver area. In 1995, GAA focused on providing contract lawyers for document review projects. In 2003, GAA opened its first review facility in Colorado. Subsequently, to service the Houston, Texas market more efficiently, GAA started a second review facility in 2008. Having offices in three major U.S. cities put GAA in an excellent position to serve larger clients who sought a recruitment firm with a national reach. The increased scope also enabled GAA to recruit talent nationwide to fill local positions for clients and staff document reviews. In January, 2004, Yahne sold the firm to Ms. Delmonico and GAA’s CFO, Scott Delmonico. Elizabeth Dahill, then Executive Vice President, joined in ownership later that year. For over a quarter of a century, Gibson Arnold & Associates, Inc. has successfully partnered with clients and built relationships with legal professionals across the nation. Yahne Gibson’s business methodology remains the foundation for our executive team, who are committed to continuing the success and growth of GAA without compromising our legacy of excellence.
