Young Mayden, LLC


Working nationwide from offices in Charlotte, North Carolina, Dallas, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee, Young Mayden, LLC is a legal search and consulting firm with long-standing personal access to highly credentialed attorneys across the country, derived from decades of law practice and professional leadership. After many years on the “client” side of lawyer hiring, Ken Young and Barbara Mayden came together in 2007 to form Young Mayden, pooling perspectives and contacts cultivated through their combined 60+ years of law practice with major law firms in New York and in the southeast, and long time high level involvement in the American Bar Association. Those contacts enable the firm to conduct peer-to-peer searches; their tag line - Connecting Lawyers We Know With Workplaces We Understand - defines their method for meeting client objectives.

Representative recent matters include assisting law firms merging or opening offices in Dallas, Kansas City, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Charlotte, Charleston and Columbia; placements of partners and associates in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Charleston, Chattanooga, Chicago, Dallas, Greenville, Houston, Kansas City, Nashville, New York, Orlando, and Raleigh; general counsel and in-house placements in Massachusetts, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas; and assisting several legal-related organizations in their search for an Executive Director, including the American Bar Association, the Uniform Law Commission, the National Judicial College, the National Conference of Bar Examiners, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, the New York State Bar Association, the North Carolina Bar Association, the State Bar of Wisconsin, The Florida Bar, the Tennessee Bar Association and the State Bar of Texas. 

Ken Young, in Charlotte, and Amber Shockey, in Dallas, have both served on the Board of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants (NALSC) and Ken Young is the current President of NALSC.  Barbara Mayden, Amber Shockey and Ken Young have all been named to Lawdragon’s Top 100 Legal Consultants and Strategists for 2017.

Young Mayden has five lawyers working as recruiters and search consultants in its three offices.
