Caroline Neff


Caroline joined Preferred Placement as a recruiter in January 2019. She began her career in “BigLaw” as a structured finance associate at Alston & Bird in NYC where the recruiting calls she received made her realize that she wasn’t interested in pursuing another role as a practicing attorney, and also didn’t want to be a practicing attorney. She has happily achieved her goal to serve as a trusted advisor without the bane of the billable hour, and thrives on the challenging but gratifying process of helping lawyers start a new chapter in their lives.

After living in Manhattan for almost a decade, Caroline is a proud New Yorker. She received her undergraduate degree in English from Columbia University and her law degree from NYU. During her time off Caroline can usually be found spending time with her husband at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or at Terra Blues. A classically trained pianist, Caroline also enjoys expanding her musical repertoire and is gradually learning to play all of her favorite Billy Joel songs.
