Meet our Founder

Michelle Bigler, Founder of MB Attorney Search, is widely recognized as an instrumental legal recruiter that goes beyond the job description to meet her client’s business objective and the resume to understand the candidate’s career goals. She is a strategic consultant to both attorneys and employers throughout the hiring process and an advisor on the trends in the legal industry.

Today more than ever before it is essential for law firms and companies to make strategic hiring decisions and for individuals to make fulfilling career moves. It is widely known in the legal industry that the dramatic changes over the past decade will require attorneys and organizations to grapple with an evolving industry. The challenge to make successful hiring decisions and successful lateral moves can be daunting. As a trusted advisor, Michelle draws upon over 20 years of legal recruitment experience which includes working as a recruiter for an international legal search firm and as a lateral recruiting manager for a national law firm. A confidant to hiring partners, all levels of attorneys, from senior partners with portable books of business to junior level associate attorney in a wide range of legal expertises, Michelle has helped navigate countless high stakes negotiations bringing together a win-win for both her clients and candidates future.

Every organization has its own unique culture and every attorney has their own unique career path. Michelle takes the time to learn the nuances of each organization and the circumstances of the individual by asking intuitive questions and actively listening for the answers. When she conducts a search for a client she is not only filling a position, she is actively marketing the merits of her client’s workplace. In the same manner, Michelle invests in her candidate relationships and views her role as advocating for their long-term career.

When Michelle is not focused on bringing legal talent to her clients, she is a proud mom to three active children (a tween girl and two elementary age boys) that love all things sports-related, music, and fast roller coasters (against Michelle’s better judgement). Her husband owns and operates Bigler Sports, a youth sports company. While Michelle has travelled extensively and lived in Europe for two years, she eventually returned home to the Milwaukee area and remains a proud Wisconsinite.

  • Working with Michelle was such a pleasure! She was not only attentive to my professional needs as a job candidate, but she really took the time to understand my specific needs in relocating to Wisconsin. Michelle genuinely listened to me, which was clear in her communications, as she is extremely responsive and comprehensive. Her experience in the recruiting field is evident and she is very well connected. I would highly recommend working with her to anyone looking for a position!
