We recently surveyed the U.S. legal market and our client and attorney network as part of our desire to better understand the rapidly growing and evolving legal community. In our research, we discovered that Texas is home to a growing number of law firms and innovators, particularly attorneys that are interested in using legal technology to help run their practices more efficiently.
From our data and research, we discovered an unmet need in Texas for technology-driven legal staffing solutions.
As a result, we are proud to announce that we have opened a brand new office in San Antonio, Texas!
Helming our San Antonio office will be another new addition to the Hire an Esquire team, Hi Leva. Following recent fundraising success, including an investment from the venture arm of the largest law firm in the world, the Hire an Esquire leadership team targeted Hi, then an investor and advisor to the team, to improve and enrich the Hire an Esquire customer experience and expand our presence in the growing Texas market.
Hi describes Hire an Esquire as “an inspirational start up that is quickly evolving to a scale up, empowered with a passionate team, loyal investors, and a receptive marketplace for technology enabled staffing solutions.”

Hire an Esquire lead investor Dixon Doll, founder of Venture Capital Firm DCM and former Chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, is very excited about Hi joining the team after having worked with him for over a year as an advisor and fellow board member.
Dixon believes that Hi is “exceptionally well qualified to help Hire an Esquire realize the fullest of our considerable market potential. Being very strategic, as well as a terrific people-person, Hi will also help our many clients accomplish their own business objectives in a timely, creative and strategic manner.”

Prior to this assignment, he was an Account Director for Western Europe, based in London, and was a Business and Channel Development Manager focused on global expansion opportunities. Before Tekelec, he spent 8 years at Lucent Technologies in a variety of roles in new business development, partnership development and product management and development. Hi was recently named one of the “Top Sales Leaders to Watch” by the Sales Benchmark Index.
Hi earned his MBA from the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago and a BoE in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University.
Hire an Esquire has been rapidly growing as an industry leader in technology-enabled on demand enterprise legal staffing. Upon adding growing numbers of the AMLaw 200 and Fortune 500 to its client roster, Hire an Esquire recently closed a new round of investment.
The Hire an Esquire leadership team looks forward to bringing Hi’s capabilities in product and strategy to the company’s current exciting chapter of growth and industry adoption.
