Passion for the Process, Respect for Colleagues, and Appreciation for the Common Goal

Since 1992, these three principles helped PTA aggressively expand from one woman’s vision to a dedicated team of experts fully invested in understanding and realizing our clients’ goals. From traditional legal staffing solutions to cutting-edge outsourcing alternatives, PTA team members are eager to put their insight and expertise to work for you.

People are our business; consequently, we apply the same energy into attracting, developing, and retaining talented candidates that we do to serving our clients. PTA’s rigorous selection process focuses on academic accomplishments, personal integrity, and the ability to deliver high-quality results under pressure.

In short, we seek candidates who will make immediate, value-added contributions to client teams and who share our vision of excellence in an instant. PTA offers generous benefits, unparalleled professional development opportunities, and sincere collegial relationships.  Then – because we aim to exceed industry standards every day – we encourage our candidates to compare us with the competition and, if necessary, we raise our bar even higher.

We take pride in over-performing for both our clients and our candidates.  We understand that our reputation rests firmly on the quality of our responses.

Employment is an act of trust.  Both candidates and clients should rest assured that PTA’s strict security procedures safeguard both personal and professional information.  Furthermore, as an equal opportunity employer, PTA welcomes diversity.  We place candidates based on their qualifications and without regard for race, sex, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability.

Staffing is a relationship-driven business where trust matters.  We deal with clients and candidates honestly.  We aren’t afraid of responsibility and will do our best to make things right in the rare instances where placements go wrong.
