No legal recruiter in Arizona has succeeded with more energy, dedication, heart and character than Heidi Bayer – no one. She is, hands down, without reservation, our city's finest. 

– Shawn Aiken

Heidi is an exceptional recruiter and person. She is not interested in just making the next placement--instead, she is focused on helping clients and candidates find a truly perfect fit. Heidi works tirelessly on behalf of her clients and does so with integrity, honesty and candor. Heidi's extensive knowledge of the Phoenix market and the solid relationships and reputation she has built are unmatched. Working with Heidi was a genuine pleasure, and I am grateful for the instrumental role she played in helping me land my dream job.

Working with Heidi was an absolute pleasure. She didn't simply accept the role at face value and spent as much time, if not more, gaining an understanding of our company and team as she did learning about the role itself. In doing so, she was able to make helpful suggestions about the scope and direction of the actual role, not just the search. And the knowledge that she gained helped her absolutely nail that mythical term "fit", which, above and beyond credentials or background, is paramount at any fast-moving organization.

Heidi’s approach is organic.  She genuinely cares about her work and takes great pride in understanding those whom she serves.  She took the time to get to know our firm over a several year period, and when the time was right for us to hire her, she knew exactly how to approach the job.  Because she took the time to get to know us, she continually finds us excellent candidates.  She also is available to help us keep up with market trends.  She has become a valuable resource for our firm.

Heidi ‘gets it’ – she skillfully listened to my needs and found me a perfect cultural fit and new firm home to flourish and take it to the next level.  If she is talking to you and you’re reading this, know you are in good hands and you can trust her to really understand and care about your needs.

Working with Heidi was one of the best professional decisions I've made. I met her and began valuing her counsel long before I became a client and she was one of the first people I contacted when I had the opportunity to work with her. Her depth of relationships and knowledge of the legal market was apparent from the very beginning and became invaluable to me over a months long process. Further, she listened to me and came to understand who I am and what I was hoping to find. She then went out and found it and put me in the best position possible. She and her team at HGB far exceeded my expectations. She was a pleasure to work with and became a friend that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Heidi Bayer delivers on what many other recruiters can only hope to promise.  She takes the time to listen to get to know your firm, your practice area, your specific needs – and then finds the right candidate for you.  We are beyond thrilled with the latest candidate she placed with us and look forward to working with her in the future.

– Shawn Oller

It is an absolute pleasure to recommend Heidi! My law firm has worked with Heidi and her team for the last several months and we couldn't be more impressed and pleased with HGB. Heidi visited our office and spent a considerable amount of time getting to know the firm. Heidi is intelligent, committed and passionate about meeting our firm's recruiting needs. More important, she has delivered tangible results. She has become a valuable member of our team! It's an honor and privilege to work with HGB.

– Oscar Lizardi

I truly could not recommend Heidi more wholeheartedly! She was the recruiter working on behalf of a company to which I was applying and when she reached out to me, I immediately knew that she was different from any other recruiter I had ever worked with. She took the time to get to know who I was as a person, not just an anonymous name on a resume. As a result, I quickly trusted her to not only determine whether I'm the right fit for the role she was representing, but also to provide sage advice and insight about other roles I was applying for. Without her guidance and kindness, I almost certainly would not have ended up in my current role. I'm proud to count her as a professional connection as well as a personal friend.

Heidi is the most thorough and thoughtful professional recruiter I’ve worked with. She is a trusted partner for both clients and candidates, who takes the time to get to know and understand their needs. Her attention to detail and dedication to the process makes her highly successful at bringing clients and candidates together. The energy and enthusiasm Heidi brings to the process truly makes her one of a kind. I highly recommend Heidi to anyone in need of a recruiting professional.

– Matt Sloan

Without any exaggeration, when Heidi Bayer is in your corner, she is as invested in the success and advancement of your law firm as you are. Her attention to the detailed nuances of finding the perfect "employee fit" is simply astonishing. Professional, determined, and laser-focused on your specific goals, Heidi is someone you can trust to find what you're looking for. She far exceeded our expectations. She is also an absolute pleasure to work with on a daily basis during your legal recruiting process. The level of service that she and her team at HGB Recruiting provide is unparalleled in the legal field. I can't possibly recommend her enough. 

– Michael Aurit

After one meeting with Heidi from HGB Professional Recruiting Solutions, it was clear to me that she would be a long-time resource for our firm. She is a strategic thinker and carefully structures scenarios that make sense for both the candidate and the firm. HGB has proven that they are “in it” for a long-term relationship, rather than the one-time deal. I would highly recommend Heidi if you are considering a new hire or need help in long-term planning for your firm. She will prove to be a great asset!

As someone who has previously worked in the staffing industry, I know the value of a good recruiter. In my opinion, Heidi Bayer is as good as it gets, and I know that I’m not alone in my thoughts. Heidi was the first referral I received when it came to legal recruiters. More importantly, I kept getting referred to Heidi through various circles of colleagues. Once I reached out to Heidi, it was apparent why she is so well-regarded. Where some recruiters simply request a copy of my resume and provide their list of openings, Heidi took the time to get to know me and the type of opportunities that would be of interest. Heidi was able to help me locate a new opportunity within a very short time. I cannot speak highly enough of Heidi, and I’d strongly recommend her services if you are seeking new opportunities.

– Nate Stuart

Heidi Bayer is among the best, if not the best, legal recruiters in the Arizona market.  My partners and I have used her services to recruit top level talent.  Heidi’s primary talent is to match candidates that will mesh well with a firm’s overall culture.  This helps to ensure that lateral candidates will find success at their new firm, and in that sense, it is a “win-win” for everyone.  If you are looking to recruit legal talent, or if you are an attorney looking to make a lateral move, I give Heidi my highest endorsement.

– Will Fischbach

Before I met Heidi, I had tried working with two other placement professionals with little to show for it. Once I started working with her, she had set me up with multiple interviews within a few short weeks. She listened to me and presented me with opportunities that would further my goals. Not only did she help find the right opportunity for me, she helped me every step of the way from interview to acceptance of a position. I would not recommend any placement professional other than Heidi.

– Nick Scavio

I recently had the opportunity to work with Heidi while recruiting for an associate level attorney at our firm. Upon our first meeting, I instantly felt at ease with Heidi and was quickly impressed with her high energy, professionalism, her dedication to her career and, most importantly, to finding just the right candidate for us. She did not disappoint. I've come to consider Heidi not only an excellent recruiter, but a friend.
