“I have known Nancy since my earlier days at Butzel Long. We considered her to be the ‘recruiter of the stars.’ In other words, Nancy always attracted the brightest and best candidates. Since that time she has not only placed me in a position, but has assisted numerous friends in finding an ideal match. She is among the most ethical and professional recruiters that I know. She genuinely cares for all parties concerned. She would rather walk away from a deal, than force it through, if anyone is less than totally comfortable. The rest of the legal profession would benefit from being more ‘Nancy like.'” — General Counsel
