About the Owner



One of the attorneys I worked for told me, ‘Use your paralegal experience to find something you really like to do.’ The rest is recruiting history.”

Thirty years of being a successful legal recruiter and Darnell is still excited to get to her desk every morning. She feels that it is both a privilege and honor to work with clients and candidates who she really likes, and that the opportunity to be of service and help is very satisfying. Before working as a legal recruiter, Darnell was a paralegal in New Orleans—that’s when she received that bit of life-changing advice from her boss. She started Shuart & Associates to help people find careers that they truly love, knowing first-hand that it’s the very best way to achieve contentment and joy in life.
