The name Evergreen Laterals is a nod to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where we are located, and to our specialty in the lateral associate market. The word evergreen, of course, also denotes something that is sustainable and lasting – the type of placements we seek for our candidates and clients.


We are dedicated to bringing integrity and transparency to the legal recruiting profession. We recognize that making a career move is a life-changing decision and believe it is a privilege to be involved in such a process. We reject the notion that a candidate should be at the mercy of a recruiter’s revenue goals.


Stephanie Dow, Esq., Principal

Upon graduating from Boston University School of Law with honors, Stephanie practiced law in Boston for several years before returning to her hometown in the Pacific Northwest. She soon joined an established Northwest-based attorney recruiting firm to assist in the firm’s national expansion.

As the firm’s lead national recruiter, Stephanie placed associates throughout the country in law firms ranging in size from highly-regarded boutiques, to global Am Law 100 firms. During this process, she witnessed the dishonest and self-serving tactics legal recruiters often used to generate revenue, despite their pledges of sincerity. Determined that a different methodology was possible and necessary, Stephanie branched off to launch her own attorney placement boutique, Evergreen Laterals, LLC.
