Leslie Firtell, Esq.
President and Chief Executive Officer
A 18-year veteran and pioneer of the legal staffing industry and an attorney herself, Leslie introduced the benefits of legal staffing to law firms and corporations before it was a common practice. In 2007, seeing the limitations of the traditional staffing model, she founded Tower Legal Solutions with a passion for providing her clients with the highest level of customer service in legal staffing, managed review, consulting and compliance. She envisioned a service-oriented model that empowered clients with effective control and oversight, and she engaged committed candidates through targeted job opportunities.
Based on the principles of open communication, transparency, and accountability, Tower Legal Solutions has grown under Leslie’s leadership into a preferred provider of legal staffing and managed review solutions to Fortune 100 companies and large law firms across the country. By focusing on both sides of the contract lawyer equation, Leslie is proud to have generated a loyal customer and candidate base that is unsurpassed in the industry. As a well-respected leader in the industry, she has built a dynamic and experienced team of industry professionals, all of whom are equally dedicated and committed to the success of their clients and candidates.
Leslie received her BA from the University of Rochester and her JD from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. Tower Legal Solutions is a WBENC-certified woman-owned company, and Leslie is an active member of the Women Presidents’ Organization, which is dedicated to supporting and empowering women entrepreneurs. Leslie was also recently named one of Ernst & Young LLP’s 2012 Entrepreneurial Winning Women.Contact Leslie Firtell, Esq.
