About Us

OPUS: /ˈōpəs/

Something that is the result of creative effort;
composition, piece, production, work.

OpusLex is a full-service legal recruiting firm. We place attorneys, paralegals and other legal professionals on a direct-hire, contract-to-hire and project basis with law firms and corporate legal departments throughout the country


Our team is comprised of expert legal recruiters, former law firm lateral recruiting managers, and talent agency veterans. We understand professional services, white-glove service, and bespoke legal recruiting, and were uninspired by the highly-transactional, impersonal and rigid staffing models utilized by
mega-sized staffing firms.

Drawing upon our decades of experience, we are excited to bring a hands-on, customized and personalized approach back to legal recruiting. At OpusLex, which literally means “legal body of work,” our body of work includes finding the very best for each and every search.

We help legal professionals create their best bodies of work, whether you’re hiring for your firm or company, or seeking your next role. Emphasizing quality over quantity, we’re positive that you will experience the difference in our philosophy.


Woman-owned, lean and nimble, when you work with us, you will enjoy a fresh perspective, a single point-of-contact, and a full suite of hiring solutions at your disposal. Unlike other recruiting firms, our team consists of tenured industry professionals – we know this business and choose this business, resulting in familiarity and continuity for our clients and candidates.
