Sueann M. Hall
Low employment rates are not a problem for Sueann M. Hall, owner and president of Just Legal Inc., a legal staffing company and legal secretarial training school in Hockessin. Since opening the firm in 2002, Hall has served 300 law firms, graduated 150 students, opened an attorney placement division and launched a new consulting services division. “We have personally placed more than 3,000 people in seven years,” she says. “I have interviewed about 7,200 people.” The legal community’s woes are her gains. “Law firms were heavily hit with layoffs in the recession. When firms get additional caseloads, they have to call for temporary help, so our temp business has grown exponentially.” Before founding Just Legal, Hall sold an agency in Florida to a national firm. She stayed on as vice president, running 30 offices and growing sales from $3 million to $28 million in two years.
IT'S NOT ALL GOOD The recession has negatively impacted Hall’s permanent placement division, which should improve as the economy recovers.
THE UPSIDE Hall has built a solid reputation with law firms throughout the tri-state area.
