Alice Fisher

“With over a decade of experience in the legal industry, I have spent the last 10 years assisting law firms and corporate legal departments with staffing, consulting, projects, E-discovery and direct-hire services. As Executive Director for Special Counsel, I work with clients throughout the East Bay, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Sacramento to support their business and staffing solutions. I’ve held numerous management positions and have been recognized internationally as a top producer. I have been successful in offering first-class customer service, open lines of communication and most importantly, transparency in my business style to all of my clients.”

Jessica Jones

“After working for Special Counsel for almost three years, my love for staffing continues to grow. I pride myself in being a consultant for both clients and candidates, either helping with resume and interview questions or sharing market trends and helping with the hiring processes. What I have found to be one of my favorite parts of my job is representing so many strong figures in the legal community on the candidate and client side. I represent and work with some of the most confident, successful, and motivated individuals I have ever encountered. It has been very rewarding to help them with their voice and providing them with information to help them excel in their career.”

Kristen Zielenbach

“My recruiting journey started four years ago when I became a Project Coordinator at Korn Ferry in New York City! I discovered quickly that I wanted to work in a dynamic environment where I could interact with both candidates and clients being a professional match maker.  I relocated to Portland, OR one year ago and started working with Special Counsel in October of 2017. This firm has easily been the best staffing company I have ever had the privilege of working with. I pride myself on making thoughtful placements, ensuring a win-win for both our candidates and our clients.”
