Legal and Compliance Executive Search Blog


Posted by Momentum Search Partners on Sat, Sep 16, 2017

Momentum was a proud sponsor of the educational seminar and legal expo held this week at the Stephen F. Austin hotel by the Austin Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators. Firm Administrators heard speakers on topics such as cybersecurity and privacy and compliance issues related to cybersecurity. This was the 19th annual conference held in Austin by the ALA, and presented a great opportunity for legal administrators to share ideas, network, and learn. The theme this year was Once Upon a Time, so of course Momentum recruiters went all out with the fairy-tale theme, complete with wings, wands, and fairy-tale dust.

Allison comes to Momentum with fifteen years of legal recruiting experience in Austin.

In addition, Allison has extensive experience staffing document reviews on both a national and local level and with both English speakers and those fluent in foreign languages.
Allison and her family recently relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina due to her husband’s career, so she will be leading Momentum’s effort to expand into the Charlotte market. However, Allison will also continue her placement work in Austin and travel to Austin on a regular basis. She will also remain active in all of the Austin legal networking and professional groups she has always enjoyed, such as Women of Wind Energy, Capital Area Paralegals Association, the Austin Legal Professionals Association, and Women in eDiscovery.

She has experience recruiting and placing legal secretaries, paralegals, legal nurse consultants, office administrators, contract administrators and attorneys.
In addition, Mary Alice has experience staffing large document review projects, having secured and managed for four plus years a one hundred lawyer document review for an international financial software and data company.
