Hire an Esquire has been innovating the way legal professionals work since 2011. We reinvented legal staffing with a proprietary online platform that analyzes a candidate’s experience and expertise to best match them with contract and permanent positions at law firms and legal departments of all sizes - the first system of its kind. The result is efficient and flexible legal staffing, built for a modern workforce.
Today, we’re leading the future of legal work, where talented and skilled attorneys are entrepreneurial and can build a career off of the rigid partner track. We’ve grown to 14 employees in 4 offices across the country with a growing network of 9,000+ vetted legal professionals, and 100+ registered AmLaw 200 firms, boutique firms, and in-house legal departments.
We’re bringing the gig economy to work for our clients and legal professionals. We invite you to become one of them.

Hire an Esquire Values
We take responsibility for our own actions as individuals on a team, and as a team to our clients and legal professionals. True accountability is an opportunity to understand how we can work to inspire the best in ourselves and in others.
We know that if we’re going to meet our goals, we’ll have to work together. Everyone needs a moment to be carried, and everyone will carry a teammate at some point. Job descriptions are necessary and helpful, but they never stop us from stepping up to help our team cross the finish line.
We believe that transparency is the best business philosophy. Betrayal of trust always makes its way to the bottom line and honesty keeps us all feeling happier, healthier, and more engaged with our work.
JFDI or JFFIO (just f**king figure it out)
We don’t let our comfort with the status quo prevent us from making the pivots necessary to achieve our goals. The right tool is the tool that can get the job done. We are open and eager to constantly learn and improve ourselves and our processes. Every single team member is empowered to be a problem solver.
