Candidate Testimonials


Nicole is kind, courteous, and, above all, professional. She was instrumental in helping me find a great position with a competitive salary and benefits. I highly recommend going to her for assistance with your job search or questions about the process.

Jacob Levit – Corporate Paralegal at Gladstone Companies

Nicole was an absolute pleasure to work with, she truly cares about her candidates and ensures they have everything they need during the interviewing process. She is personable, kind, and communicates promptly and effectively. I could not be happier in my new role, but if I had to interview again, I would hope it would be with her!

Briana Stevens – Director of Global Compliance at Internet Society

I first met Nicole when she was recruiting for a role with my new employer, Internet Society. From the first screen with Nicole to the final interviews at ISOC, Nicole was thoughtful, encouraging, and full of good advice and information. She was professional and an absolute pleasure to work with, a rare combination in any field – especially among lawyers. Anyone considering working with Nicole would be wise to do so.

Client Testimonials


I cannot rave enough about Mary Winter and Firm Advice. Mary and her colleague handled a relatively unconventional and difficult search for my organization and they could not have done a better job. Extremely thorough, dogged, professional, personable, so pleasant to work with – I really cannot say enough great things about them.

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY recommend Firm Advice for your placement needs – they are absolutely top notch.

Stephen Dwyer – President at American Staffing Association

Mary is great! I have worked with Mary several times over the past 2 years to fill both temp and permanent positions. As a hiring manager, I really like working with her because she has a knack for finding candidates that meet the needs of my department. I give her a laundry list of qualifications and she always manages to find great people that meet them. She does a thorough screening of candidates and provides a helpful perspective that makes evaluating candidates easier. Mary has taken the time to understand our business and the attributes that make my team successful. She is very responsive, pleasant to communicate with and understands that recruiting is a partnership. I would also recommend Mary to candidates because she is so well-connected with the DC region in-house legal community.

David Goldberg – VP, General Counsel Enterprise Americas at OpenText

Mary is incredibly professional and responsive throughout the entire hiring process. I was very pleased with the candidates Mary submitted and extremely impressed with her thorough analysis for each candidate. I would not hesitate to engage Firm Advice again for assistance in the future and highly recommend Mary and her team!
