Allison comes to Momentum with fifteen years of legal recruiting experience in Austin. Allison is passionate about her work and prides herself on offering timely and exceptional service to clients and candidates alike. She places Attorneys, Paralegals, and Administrative Staff in both Austin law firms and in corporate legal departments on a temporary, temp to perm, and direct hire basis. 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.

Since 1996 she has sourced, recruited, and marketed candidates to law firms and corporations, managed existing clients, and developed new business. 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. Mary Alice has been an active member of the Capital Area Paralegals Association, the Austin Legal Professionals Association, and served on the Board of Women in eDiscovery.
