________________________________________________________

After spending twenty years recruiting attorneys at two of the top Silicon Valley – based law firms (Gunderson Dettmer LLP and Fenwick & West LLP), Julieta felt like it was easy as walking across the street to switch to legal recruiting from hiring director at Fenwick.  She is by all standards a self-described industry dinosaur who obviously (NOT) began her law firm career at age 18. Having done partner recruiting at Fenwick since 2010, Julieta might “literally” know everyone in the industry. And as the former president of Bay Area Legal Recruiters Association, it’s like calling an old friend when she reaches out to hiring managers at all the top Silicon Valley firms.

While she can’t believe she is still working with lawyers (no offense to her colleagues, former colleagues, and husband) she loves the joy in hiring the right people for the right Firm, and will bring that enthusiasm to Whistler as she becomes an industry “matchmaker.”

testimonial about this recruiter:

Julieta is an invaluable recruiting partner. Her years of expertise on the law firm side give her a unique perspective – she truly knows what law firms need and want, she knows the lateral market inside and out, and she makes the entire process effortless. Julieta is amazing to work with and works with amazing talent; it’s a perfect match all around. She is a go-to for any and all searches. You’re in the best of hands with Julieta and I can’t recommend her enough!

Just wanted to reach out and say how impressed I have been with Julieta. She is killing it. She is extremely responsive (which I appreciate) and really gives a lot of thought when answering my (many :)) questions. Whenever I have an ask or question she goes at it 110% and I really value that.
She also brings a lot of Bay Area market knowledge which is super valuable. For example, I am talking to a Partner tomorrow at Gunderson and she knows them well enough to shoot them a text to put in a good word. The Bay Area expertise is especially important because I went to law school on the East Coast and did not do OCI with many of the SV firms.
Lastly, I think of Julieta as a strategic partner, rather than someone trying to sell me on something that would be best for them. This last part is probably the most important and has earned my trust and respect.

I recently wrapped up a job search process with Julieta, and am utterly and completely impressed with Julieta. She made my job search and interview process, which is normally frustrating and daunting, so streamlined and manageable, to the point it was downright enjoyable.
Not only is Julieta a consummate professional with a deep and fulsome understanding of the market (including its dynamics and its players), but she is also unfailingly kind and empathetic. She took the time to truly get to know me and to help me figure out what I actually wanted for the next phase of my career. From day one, Julieta completely dedicated herself and her valuable time to get me to that next phase, from answering my many and varied questions, to allaying any of my concerns and doubts, to providing me with key insights into firms and its personnel, to helping me process all the information I was receiving from firms.
Julieta went above and beyond in all respects, ensuring that I was prepared for my interviews and that I was thinking pragmatically and strategically throughout the entire process.

As a professional, I genuinely value working with other excellent professionals. Julieta is an excellent professional and an outstanding recruiter. In addition to her hands-on in-house experience as a lateral recruiter at Fenwick, she has a complete view of the tech landscape and a deep knowledge of California based-firms. Further, her business acumen coupled with her well-rounded nature (and high EQ) allows her to keenly partner with clients to identify and advance their professional and personal goals for successful long-term fits.

I am so thrilled to begin my new position at Latham & Watkins, and due to Julieta’s expertise and guidance, know this will be an excellent next step for me professionally and an excellent fit for me personally. Julieta was more than a top-notch and keenly intelligent recruiter: she was a negotiator, a sounding board, an advisor, a quasi-therapist and a true ally. I cannot thank her enough for all she did for me!
