Kelly Rizzo is a Senior Director based in Houston where she focuses on attorney placements with premier law firms in the Texas market. Utilizing her background in litigation, Kelly works side-by-side with candidates to determine their goals and priorities, then develop strategies designed to bring those goals and priorities to fruition by finding the right firm for each candidate. She believes that a hands-on approach is the best way to help candidates, and she works closely with each person through every step of the lateral process, from resume review to interview prep to making the final decision about accepting an offer.

Kelly is a native Houstonian and a double alum of the University of Houston, having completed both her B.A. and J.D. degrees there. Prior to joining Lateral Link, Kelly was an associate at a boutique law firm in the Houston area, gaining valuable experience working directly with clients and regularly appearing in court and mediations. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and their two dogs. She also loves traveling, cooking, and going to sporting events and concerts.

Kelly is a remarkable and hardworking recruiting professional. She provides support through every step of the process, individualizes her strategy based on your unique needs, and works around the clock to ensure that you find the right fit for you. From the moment we started working together, I felt incredibly comfortable with her guiding me through the process of switching firms. I couldn't recommend Kelly more for any attorney looking to make a move.
