“ As Director of Administration and Human Resources for Levitt & Grosman LLP, Effie was the architect of moving the entire law firm to a new more prominent location in downtown Toronto, addressing all aspects of the transition, from administration, HR and organization, to lease and supplier negotiations. Effie is a strong leader, who has a proven background in organizing, developing and achieving corporate goals fundamental to the success of the business. ”

“ As my previous practice manager at a mid-size boutique family law firm in downtown Toronto, at which I was a senior partner, I found Effie’s ability to manage clients’ needs in a high-stress, demanding environment, resulted in the timeliest delivery of services and turn-around. Effie has a no nonsense approach to the task. Her unique style combines a thoughtful assessment of people and systems, developing an action plan of practicality and efficiency, with the critical evaluation of outcomes to maintain continued organizational success. She is a forward-planning, forward-thinking, go getter and I would recommend her for any project—short or long-term. ”

“ When I think of the perfect word to describe Effie, only one word comes to mind – effervescent! Whether she is embarking upon a new project, or following up just to find out how you are, Effie is one of those rare treasures in business: personality plus, and the brains to pull it off. Having had the pleasure of working with Effie over the past year, I find her not only to be a dedicated, talented professional, but a warm and genuine person. As a recruiter, she learns the culture of your business, and exactly what you need. Understanding the whole picture, she is dutiful about ensuring you have the top candidate on your slate, leaving no stone unturned to do so. When you work with Effie, you are quite simply – working with the best. ”
“ As my Director of Administration/Human Resource Manager/Crisis Manager from September 2, 2014 to December, 2015, Effie arrived at our firm at a time of significant organizational difficulty and conflict. Effie was constantly on call, available to be reached by me (our lawyers and staff), at virtually any hour of the day and night. Her tireless efforts and her ability to manage people and projects, helped us to quickly reach our organizational goals. Effie’s greatest accomplishment was our office move. Effie sourced space and purchased equipment and furniture for an entirely new office, while doing all of the recruitment for various back-office administrative staff and managers. Effie is extraordinarily well-contacted in the legal and business communities. With a plethora of contacts and relationships, she was able to resource and recruit high-quality administrative candidates with facility and ease. Our firm continues to rely upon Effie for her guidance, counsel and administrative support. ”

“ When you’re juggling a busy practice along with everything else, it’s such a relief to work with someone who “gets it”. Well, without a doubt, that person is Effie─not only did she quickly grasp our staffing needs, but she also quickly “got us” in terms of our firm’s culture and plans for the future. It’s no wonder, then, that each candidate we met with came into the interview with a genuine sense of excitement. On another note, Effie was such a joy to work with that she’s now a regular attendee at our firm’s social events. ”
“ Effie is a one-of-a-kind professional. She possesses a rare combination of excellent judgment and flexibility. Working well with a variety of personalities, her client relationship skills are highly acute. She is a big-picture thinker, and never fails to find a creative and innovative solution to a problem. Effie is indispensable to legal professionals who are thinking of opening their own firm, and is equally valuable to more established law firms who are seeking to improve their existing organizational structure. Her unique experiences at various law firms and companies allow her to offer her clients valuable insight into how they are performing in a saturated market. Whatever your organizational needs may be, Effie will ensure you receive the help your firm needs to shine. ”
Ina Tsinman, Managing Partner
Seabrook Workplace Law
“ I met Effie through a recruitment process and, over time, came to know her as a highly knowledgeable and consummate HR professional, with a genuinely warm and engaging personality to boot! Effie takes the time to obtain a thorough understanding of both, the recruiting client and prospective candidates, to ensure there is the best possible “fit” for both sides. Her extensive experience in human resources, companies and people allows Effie to effectively guide candidates through the recruitment process in a way that aligns that individual’s professional skills, personality and values with the hiring client for a maximally successful work relationship. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Effie and couldn’t be happier with her expert guidance and professional counsel for my career! ”
