Young Mayden, LLC is a boutique legal recruiting firm with long-standing personal access to highly credentialed attorneys across the country. Professional experience and the personal contacts of the firm's principals, as well as the firm's unique approach to placement set Young Mayden apart.

Working nationwide from offices in Charlotte, North Carolina and Nashville, Tennessee, Young Mayden provides services in three distinct areas – legal recruiting, consulting, and career counseling. Young Mayden places attorneys with leading law firms and corporate legal departments, provides consulting and strategic planning services for law firms wishing to merge or open new offices, and offers individual career planning for lawyers.
