A legal staffing firm is an invaluable asset to many law firms. Legal staffing firms provide extra staff when needed, so a law firm does not need to hire new permanent staff every time it works on a large project. Legal staffing firms can provide staff for as little as a few hours a day, or for long-term temporary assignments.
Long-term temporary assignments may have to be filled for six or more months because firms must provide time off for medical reasons under the Family Medical Leave Act. Rather than the firm using precious time to interview and hire someone only to find out that the person is not a good fit for the job, it contacts a legal staffing firm.
Legal staffing firms match employers and employees. They will find a person that meets the general attitude and atmosphere of the office and has extensive experience if that person is a paralegal or an attorney.
