In 1986, P.G. Prager Search Associates, Ltd. was established by Paul Gershon Prager as a human resources search and consulting firm. Soon thereafter, the Firm began to specialize in serving the legal profession. P.G. Prager Search prides itself in offering the highest quality legal recruitment services on Long Island. P.G. Prager Search is well respected throughout the Long Island legal community. Using the services of P.G. Prager Search will free you from spending many hours reviewing numerous resumes and interviewing candidates who are not appropriate for the position you seek to fill. The attorneys in our database and those who will apply to us are often superior to those who answer ads placed directly by law firms. Since our time has been devoted to meeting and evaluating candidates, we have developed the ability to conduct more interviews, in greater depth, than most law firm partners are able to devote the time to do. This ensures that every candidate you spend your time with will be well qualified to become a productive associate or partner in your firm. We also have the expertise to carry out law firm mergers.

Personal Service

We provide a very personal service. Before accepting your assignment we get to know your firm. You will be visited at your office so that we may learn about your firm philosophy, the type of professionals you employ and the general working environment. You tell us, face-to-face whenever possible, about the available position and the type of individual you would like to fill it. We will question you about the exact qualifications you require to be sure, from the start, that we are looking for the right person. Because of our legal recruitment expertise, you will not have to teach us about law firms. It is the philosophy of P.G. Prager Search Associates, Ltd. to secure the best people available to fill your particular needs. In many instances, these prospects will be satisfactorily employed elsewhere. It is our job to locate them, verify their credentials and make sure that they will enhance your professional environment. We will send you only those candidates who meet your requirements. When you have determined which of the candidates you are most comfortable with, we will assist in negotiating salary, fringes, contracts and related matters.

Knowledge Of Long Island

We are very active in many organizations on the Island and know hundreds of corporate executives, bankers and attorneys. We use our network to assist us in locating the best candidates. You will never see any prospect until we have carried out our in-depth, personal interview and have satisfied ourselves that he or she is a viable candidate for your firm. Because of the many attorneys we have placed and our confidence that we will locate the right person for you, we offer contingent fees (payment only after the assignment is fully completed) and a substantial guaranty.
