We had the good fortune of connecting with Amy Goldware and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amy, what do you attribute your success to?
Integrity. Integrity is manifested in every placement we work on. In practice, that means we are committed to the highest possible quality of work and attention to detail. Our services are always accomplished, start to finish, with the utmost professionalism. And, though we very rarely make mistakes, when we do, we immediately “own” the problem and fix whatever did not go precisely as planned.
What should our readers know about your business?
AGA Legal Staffing is a specialized legal staffing agency that caters to law firms and in-house legal departments. We find legal talent on a temporary, temp-to-hire, and direct-hire basis. Our placements can range from any legal positions (secretaries and paralegals) to HR, accounting, marketing, and some IT. Due to our size, clients will not have to adhere to an oversized company-wide agreement with set terms and conditions. We cater to the client and their needs – one size does not fit all. We value our integrity, reputation, and ethics.
There is a lot of competition in the LA market, but we feel we stand apart by how we treat others, with respect and professionalism, as well as being able to reach us at any time and not hide behind emails or not accept calls. We hear, so often, that recruiters or agencies do not get back to people either timely or at all. Even when we are all working remotely, we make ourselves available.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them over to experience Abbott Kinney, in Venice, and enjoy breakfast at Butcher’s Daughter and then continue shopping along Abbott Kinney’s amazing shops and boutiques. The next day, we would enjoy Little Tokyo on Sawtelle and explore Japanese-owned/inspired stores like Black Market, Giant Robot and and then have noodles at Tsjijita. Finally, it is a must visit to Rolling Greens Nursery, the best nursery has to offer in LA and for plants and unique home goods.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to thank Caroline Pessoa Murphy for nominating me and even thinking I would be someone others would want to know about, learn about the services I offer, and showcase what I do.
I also want to thank Naomi Fang, my Executive Director. Without her guidance and continued support, I would not have been able to start this new venture a short six months ago! She worked with me for years, initially, as a client and me as her recruiter, and then later when I brought her on board to guide my former company, The Agency Legal Staffing (2006-2021). She brings resounding guidance, instrumental human resources experience, and management.
