Unique Experience & Proven Results

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. After many years on the “client” side of lawyer hiring, Ken Young and Barbara Mayden came together in 2007 to form Young Mayden, LLC, pooling perspectives and contacts cultivated through their law practices, working with corporate legal departments and long time high level involvement in the American Bar Association and other professional organizations.

Working nationwide from offices in Charlotte, North Carolina, Nashville, Tennessee and Dallas, Texas, Young Mayden provides services in two major areas – legal recruiting for law firms, corporations, non-profits and law-related organizations, and consulting with law firms on strategic growth initiatives, including acquiring new practice groups, opening additional offices, and whether to merge with other law firms. See our Placements page for examples of success in both areas.


Over 60 combined years of experience practicing business and employment law



Hundreds of successful placements across the country and around the world
