We have decades of experience in the legal industry, at law firms big and small, and years of staffing experience.  At Lone Star Legal Search, it is our goal to run your search efficiently to ensure you get the best candidates, not the most resumes.
We specialize in associate, partner, partner group, permanent, contract and in-house legal placement.  We strive to understand your hiring needs so that we can target our search to ensure you get the best person to do the job.
The advisors at Lone Star Legal Search meet with each candidate in person several times, if possible.  When it is not possible, we conduct extensive phone screenings.  In addition to screening the candidate for their academic success and professional achievements, during this time we learn why the candidate is searching for a new position, examine their work ethic, integrity, judgment and character, and focus on their character and experiences outside the law.  Looking beyond the resume, is an essential part of what we do.


"Sewell Automotive Companies had the great pleasure of working with Sara and Mardy of Lone Star Legal Search.  We were hiring our first in-house counsel and they were outstanding from start to finish.  Sara and Mardy took the time to help us define our search parameters and the type of candidate that would fit our needs now and grow with us in the future.  They submitted fully-vetted and extremely qualified candidates, which expedited our hiring process.  This allowed our team to focus on their day to day operations while conducting the search.  Our team was impressed with Lone Star’s communication, responsiveness, and management of the search and interview process.  In short, they found us the perfect hire and we would not hesitate to work with them again.  They are true professionals who believe in excellent customer service."

"I have worked with my fair share of attorney search firms over the years, and I can say with confidence that Lone Star Legal Search delivers top notch results.  Mardy and Sara did an exemplary job on a recent search for a candidate to lead Copart’s growing real estate practice.  The search parameters were very specific regarding experience, timing, cost, and cultural fit.  Mardy and Sara listened closely to our needs and in a few short weeks delivered a slate of highly qualified candidates, which led to a successful hire. I could not be happier with the outcome.  Their professionalism, responsiveness, and integrity are outstanding. I would work with them again without hesitation."

Gregory R. DePasquale, General Counsel, Copart, Inc.

Thank you to Lone Star Legal Search for providing a seamless, timely and effective search process that led to the hire of our first healthcare counsel.
Mardy and Sara listened carefully to our needs, translated them into a thoughtful and targeted search, and, within a very short period of time, identified excellent candidates with directly relevant experience in the healthcare field.  We would have had a hard time finding such qualified candidates on our own.
They provided invaluable guidance throughout the process, including presenting vetted candidates, scheduling interviews, facilitating post-interview feedback, conducting reference checks and finalizing offer and acceptance. We enjoyed working with Mardy and Sara and would definitely work with them again.
