About

Schildcrout_5x52We are attorney recruiters with decades of experience in placing expert attorneys within the most coveted law firms and corporations. Founded ten years ago by Alysa Schildcrout and Lee Allbritton, two of Texas’ most experienced and successful legal recruiters, Amicus consistently ranks as the top legal search firm in each of the three markets in which it has offices – Houston, Dallas and Austin.

We know Texas lawyers and Texas lawyers know Amicus. For our law firm clients, we recruit partners and associates from other law firms. We have opened offices in Texas for out-of-state law firms, recruited intact practice groups for others firms, and assisted in the brokering of substantial practice migrations. With a 90% retention rate after 3 years of placement (more than double the national average), the return on our clients’ investment in our candidates is superb.

For our corporate clients, we are proud of our success in placing General Counsels, Chief Legal Officers, Associate General Counsels and numerous other in-house attorneys. Nearly all of our corporate engagements are direct referrals from our law firm clients.

We firmly believe that we are nothing without the trust of the individual attorneys whom we serve. As we have always done, we welcome all inquiries and will provide honest, timely and accurate information to all attorneys who seek our counsel.
