Lesli Allen, Executive Recruiter and Sales began her recruiting career in 1992 where she worked for a global recruitment firm that placed candidates in both administrative and accounting professions. This experience provided Ms. Allen a solid foundation into the recruiting industry and eventually allowed her to transition into what she loves and does best – utilizing her interpersonal skills to assist candidates and clients to make a career match! Lesli has spent nearly 30 years developing solid relationships with the leaders in Arizona’s premier law firms and is also proud of building an extensive candidate pool. She attributes her success to understanding that the ideal “marriage” between the candidate and employer includes both a top notch skill set along with a great fit into the company culture.
Ms. Allen is highly involved in the Phoenix legal community and is active in a number of legal support associations. She enjoys assisting hiring partners to find highly qualified candidates and is successful in helping members to grow professionally and to also promote new members for these organizations. She continuously strives to educate herself on how to improve hiring and to stay on top of our partner’s ever changing needs. Ms. Allen is currently an active member and past Board member for NALS of Phoenix, Women in eDiscovery, Arizona Paralegal Association and a past member of the Arizona Association of Defense Council.
Ms. Allen understands the importance of being an expert in her field and therefore has obtained several important certifications through the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) early on in her career. These include the Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) and the Certified Temporary Staffing Specialist (CTS) certifications.

Recruiting and networking is a 24/7 passion for Ms. Allen and she has made many lifetime friends in the legal community throughout her career! But even though her calendar is very busy with servicing her clients and candidates, Lesli believes in a good life/work balance and still makes time to have fun with her family, pets and friends!
