Roth Staffing is proud to announce that Kristy Carbajal, Vice President of Adams & Martin Group, our legal staffing and solutions business line, was recently recognized as a finalist in the San Diego Business Journal’s Business Women of the Year 2022 award. This award honors women leaders who have created a positive impact through their hard work, dedication and contributions to the workplace and their communities. 

We took a moment to chat with Kristy to find out more about how she became the leader of one of the country’s top legal recruiting firms and what inspires her to create remarkable experiences with her Adams & Martin Group team every day.  

Meet Kristy Carbajal 

Kristy Carbajal joined Adams & Martin Group in August 2005 and oversees legal project and temporary staffing, direct hire business growth, hiring and training new employees, and developing large national accounts. She specializes in placing quality legal staff for many of the nation’s top firms and corporate legal departments. 

How did you get into legal staffing and recruiting?  

Kristy: I had worked in a law firm for a couple of years and knew I loved legal. I was also doing athletic recruiting at UCLA while attending as a student and knew I loved connecting great athletes to a great school.  I blended the two and helped to launch Adams & Martin Group. 

People don’t always think of staffing as a career, what do you enjoy most?  

Kristy: I love impacting people’s lives positively. I get to do that internally with my teams, see my teams do that with the candidates we serve and then also with our clients. We work hard to extend our expertise to the legal community are constantly networking and presenting to organizations about market conditions. I love that we provide value and that the value is versatile. 

Why do you love working at Roth Staffing and Adams & Martin Group?  

Kristy: The people. We have some of the best humans working here and a lot of us have dedicated large chunks of our lives to the organization because we want to contribute to building rather than just showing up for a job. We believe in where we’re going and want to continue to be on that growth trajectory with the company. We’ve come a long way. 

Kristy inspires all of us to continue to work towards our goals and aspirations. It’s been a pleasure to get to know one of Roth Staffing’s dynamic leaders.
