FRANCIE MANN, ESQ. 

Vice President, Attorney Search

Francie joined Prime Legal in 2016 as a legal recruiter after recruiting for a contract recruiting company for two years prior. Francie earned her Juris Doctorate degree from the Charleston School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Virginia. She is licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia, District of Columbia, and South Carolina. As an attorney, Francie understands the legal market and how to help candidates find that perfect position to move their career forward.

“I love being a part of peoples’ lives involving one of the most important aspects of their life – their career. Maintaining relationships with our candidates throughout their career and watching them thrive in an opportunity that I had a small part in is the most rewarding aspect of my job.” – Francie Mann
