I began my career as a Legal Search Consultant in 2011 with Marvel Consultants in Cleveland, Ohio. I instantly fell in love with the process of helping people take the next step in their careers. I quickly found that taking some extra time and really getting to know people led to a more trusting and respectful relationship. While at Marvel, I earned many awards as a top producer – helping dozens of attorney’s discover the next chapter of their career.

I started Explorer Legal Search with the goal of utilizing my experience to help people understand the career transition process.

I earned my B.A. in Non-Profit/Human Service Management and Political Science from Kent State University. I currently live in Hudson, OH with my wife, Rachelle, and our two children – Mark, Jr. and Charlotte. We are HUGE Cleveland sport fans, enjoy outdoor activities, and cooking as a family. We are active in community affairs, including Hudson Rotary Club, Girl Scouts, Hudson PTA, and the Hudson Baseball Association.

There are several factors that lead folks into exploring the market:

  • Desire to be in a new market. Want to get home? Does your significant other miss their family? Want to surf in December? We can get you there. Seamlessly.
  • New client base. Many attorneys don’t get the opportunity to work with clients they are passionate about. Does representing a new start up sound more exciting than large bank deals? Want to work closely with medical device companies? How about advising global powerhouse venture capital firm? If you’d like to change up your client base then we can help.
  • Had enough of Karen from HR
  • Feel like a cog in the machine. Instead of a giant team – do you want to be part of a small, efficient group that affords direct client contact and significant leadership responsibilities? Ready to step up? We can get you a new ladder to climb.
  • Worked to death. Are you chained to your desk? Unreasonable face time requirements? Ever cancel a vacation at the airport? Since you can never make it- have your buddies stopped inviting you places? We can help you find the platform that will put the life back into work/life balance.
  • Awful leadership. Does your partner scream? Do you have to pound on doors for mentorship? Have 3 partners asked for 7 different revisions on the same document? Not all shops are like this – many times the grass is greener.
  • SLOW. No work. Begging for hours and skills falling behind your peers is not why you went to law school. We can get your plate filled and your skills shapened.
  • Compensation. You might be able to make more. Salary and bonuses. You’ll never know what you’re leaving on the table. We can scratch that itch.
