Julia Shapiro is the CEO of Hire an Esquire. Hire an Esquire was founded in 2011 as a response to a new way of work emerging; one where talented and skilled attorneys were entrepreneurial and autonomous and could build a career off of the rigid partner track.
As an attorney, Julia became intrigued by the contract attorney world and those that occupied it – novelists, opera singers, entrepreneurs and dedicated travelers.
Julia is based in San Francisco. She has previously been an adjunct law professor, Am Law 200 contract attorney, and subject matter expert for legal industry clients.
