“Mike Evers is a great listener. He took time to understand our corporate history, and culture, and his firm delivered a diverse slate of high quality candidates. We hired a high performing attorney via Evers Legal and would use this firm again.”

“Shortly after The WhiteWave Foods Company went public, our department added a Deputy General Counsel with significant industry related experience and securities expertise. Mike Evers handled this national search expertly. This is the second time I have engaged Mike’s firm.  He is two for two and has earned my confidence and recommendation.”

“Navistar International Corporation has engaged Evers Legal Search for recruiting assignments since 1998.

We attribute that to the work of Evers Legal Search, where passion for understanding our culture, our business and unique blend of skills we demand for success is unparalleled. We appreciate the firm’s integrity, attention to detail, sense of urgency and overall client service. We demand a lot and Evers Legal Search always delivers.”

“Our law department engaged Evers Legal Search on an exclusive basis to fill three attorney positions in 2011. Mike embraced our One Degree Law model and a fee structure that aligned our interests, versus the archaic percentage of salary formula. As a result, Mike was able to work as an extension of our team and provide helpful assessments that went beyond just resume qualifications. We appreciate Mike’s judgment.  I am pleased with the three placements and would certainly use Evers Legal Search again.”

(editor’s note: FMC Technologies did use us again and we made another placement there in 2014.  Jeff Carr has since retired from the company.)

“Mike Evers adapts to meet our needs. He partnered with us on a fixed fee basis to recruit two senior level attorneys for us after we relocated our headquarters to Glenview, Illinois. With staffing capability, Mike was also able to provide good interim legal help during the transition period. If you appreciate boutique firms and attentive service, then calling Mike is the right move to make.”

“CNH engaged Evers Legal Search to recruit our General Counsel for North American operations, a position with significant management responsibility over attorneys in multiple locations. ELS sourced on-point candidates in a timely manner, provided helpful assessments, and the offer/acceptance process went smoothly with the candidate we chose through ELS. I was quite pleased with Mike Evers’ commitment to our order and would use his firm again when an appropriate need arises.”

“Initially, I was concerned about working with a boutique legal search firm, but Mike soon erased those concerns with his tenacious approach to our search. While Mike had other searches underway, I felt as though I was his only client. His responsiveness throughout the search process was beyond my expectations. I found Mike to be the consummate professional in every interaction we engaged in. The slate of candidates presented to us was excellent and exceeded our expectations. At the beginning of our search he said that his goal was to make our jobs difficult in selecting a General Counsel in that the candidates would all be excellent. Mike met his goal. We finished the process with three candidates from which it was difficult to make a final selection. Working with Mike was simply delightful! I would highly recommend any firm to engage his services. We will certainly use him again should the occasion arise.” (editorial note:  the General Counsel selected by this client has served as the Chair-Elect of the Small Law Departments Committee of the Association of Corporate Counsel)

“Since 1999, Evers Legal Search has recruited nine attorneys and one government relations expert to Covad Communications. Covad has used ELS for searches in Georgia, California, Texas, Illinois, Colorado and Washington, DC.  Because of his (Mike Evers) knowledge of our company, I have absolute confidence in his ability to make that critical, positive first impression when contacting candidates about Covad. Mike does an exceptional job of managing expectations throughout the search and interview process. Mike operates at the highest level of integrity, maintaining client and candidate confidentiality at all times. I unhesitatingly recommend Evers Legal Search to you.”

“We used attorneys from Evers Legal on a long-term contracts project and to assist short-term during crunch time on multiple asset based financing transactions. Evers has provided high quality attorneys with exactly the right expertise, and CNH has realized significant cost savings by using this resource versus calling on outside counsel to handle those matters.”

CNH America LLC (a.k.a. Case New Holland)


“We put Evers Legal into a competitive sourcing environment for an employment law attorney with extensive in-house experience to work with us on-site during a family leave period. Evers responded right away, providing a tremendous candidate whose background and capabilities were exactly on-point. What’s more, Evers Legal was open from the outset to discussing flexible pricing options to meet our needs.”

“Due to our company’s pending merger with Unilever, we are not adding to headcount. To help meet our department’s commitment to our internal business clients, we have supplemented the in-house staff at Alberto-Culver with two attorneys from Evers Legal. The outcome has been excellent and I would recommend Evers to companies with non-traditional hiring needs.”
