Byron Camp, President

Byron Camp is the President of SouthSearch, Inc. a legal recruiting and consulting corporation.  After nearly 15 years of practicing law with 2 major law firms in Tallahassee, Florida, Byron founded SouthSearch, Inc. in 1995.  The company has been continuously doing business in the legal recruiting business since then.  Byron uses his expertise gained in the actual practice of law to maintain and mentor SouthSearch’s staff (many of which are attorneys) as the company continues to solidify and enhance its distinctive niche in the legal recruiting industry.

Initially, SouthSearch, Inc. opened offices in Tallahassee and Atlanta.  Since Byron’s contacts were much stronger in those locations, it was logical that these locations were optimal.  Initially, the Tallahassee offices serviced the Florida markets and the Atlanta office, the Georgia markets, primarily Atlanta.
