Mark, proved over approximately a six month period assisting my search to be highly professional with identifying the best firm for my practice. He coordinated meetings with a number of select firms allowing me to continue to practice without significant interruption to client work. Once I had narrowed the field of suitable firms Mark was insightful as to market knowledge and excellent to review both process and expectations. He never pressed a decision from me when offers were. I have joined a great law firm that offers me the opportunity and growth in my career. I would be happy to recommend him to others.

I appreciated that Mark cared about finding the right fit for me and my situation. He really works to understand your priorities and your practice.  He spent years patiently working with me. He is someone I trust and respect and who I would recommend without hesitation to anyone that is interested in potentially making a move now or in the future..

Mark Davis assisted me in my move to Seyfarth's San Francisco office—a move that has had a profound and positive effect on both my professional and personal life. I could recount all of Mark's extraordinary abilities as a recruiter, but his skill and experience are self-evident from his resume and his glowing recommendations. I will note, however, that Mark's knowledge of the local firms made interviewing an efficient, educated, and easy experience. Further, his devotion to help me find my future professional "home" was tireless and unparalleled. Put simply, because of Mark's help, I have reaffirmed that I love practicing law. And, as an added bonus, my move has resulted in exponential growth in my book of business. I could not recommend a better assistant in the lateral process.

I spoke with several recruiters about my desire to move to San Diego. Mark was heads and shoulders above the others in terms of his market knowledge and personal contacts in San Diego. Moreover, he invested his time to find the right placement for me and created (not merely identified) opportunities, which is rare in the business. I highly recommend Mark to any legal professional considering making a move to or within San Diego.

After spending over 20 years at one law firm, the decision to make a change was a serious one that required much careful thought and analysis. Mark Davis provided me with key information concerning my options at the firms of consequence in my region that was helpful, interesting and oftentimes surprising. He skillfully managed a number of opportunities for me that ultimately led to multiple offers. Mark then assisted me in determining the best match for my practice. I highly recommend his services to any attorney who feels their situation could be improved upon.

Throughout my transition to Jeffer Mangels, Mark Davis played a critical role in educating me about the lateral process in general, and the particulars of finding the right firm for me. Mark worked diligently to get me the information I needed on a timely basis, to help me make this important career decision.

Throughout my transition to Allen Matkins, Mark's intimate knowledge of the relevant firms that met my personal and professional criteria was extremely helpful. He was seemingly always available during the process to answer questions and ensure that my goals and objectives for the transition were fully met.  Working with Mark was a pleasure.

Monica Quinn, Labor & Employment, Allen Matkins

I spent 18 years at my former firm and never took a 'cold' call from a recruiter, but I am glad I did so with Mark.  He knew exactly what the right 'fit' was and didn't bother me with firms where he knew there wouldn't be any interest on my end.  He knew Nosssaman was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me and I'm glad I pursued it.  Moreover, Mark gave very good practical advice during the interview process.
