As an innovative and value-driven source of premier legal talent and strategic processes, JuriSolutions enables its clients to cost-effectively fill gaps, broaden capabilities and create efficiencies in their legal practices.
JuriSolutions has three service lines, CYLA, JuriStaff, and JXP Search. CYLA stands for Consider Your Legal Alternatives and its portfolio of offerings includes top credentialed and experienced project attorneys and subject matter experts, legal outsourcing, contract management, secondments, and law firm enhancement services. The JuriStaff service line offers a wide range of legal support services including legal staffing, document review, end-to-end litigation support, e-discovery and managed review services.

In 1997, Cindy launched JuriSolutions (then known only as JuriStaff) with a colleague who shared her vision that purchasers of legal services could increase value by utilizing lawyers in non-traditional ways. Under her leadership, the company has strategically grown its portfolio of offerings, entered new markets, and expanded its geographic footprint. Cindy credits the company’s success to its client-centric philosophy and unwavering commitment to quality, value and integrity.
