About Us

Our management team is comprised of a unique mix of industry veterans. As legal professionals who have worked at top law firms and companies, we bring an insider's perspective to hiring attorneys and legal staff. We listen and develop an understanding of our clients' hiring needs before we begin our search. We understand achieving the "right fit" requires hiring not only for the experience and qualifications, but also for the culture. 

Susan Sanchez, VP of Operations

As a co-founder of Alterna Legal, Susan believes that the key to a successful staffing relationship is understanding the needs of both your client and your provider. Having worked in both positions, she strives to make Alterna more than just another agency. As VP of Operations, she ensures that our motto of "All About the People" is always front and center.

Susan started her career as a paralegal and has worked in many environments from an international law firm in Hong Kong to an AmLaw 100 firm in San Francisco. For the last ten years she has worked in legal operations, where she realized there was a gap among clients, professionals, and agencies. She started Alterna Legal to address this gap and to provide synergy to the staffing process.

Susan's most important and challenging job is being a mother of two children. From a work perspective, it has taught her not to lose sight of the individuals she works with. She focuses on their needs and how to best accommodate them so they are happy and working productively. She believes this should be the rule rather than the exception in any working relationship.


Meggan Capps, Co-Founder

Meggan loves disrupting the current ways of doing business.  She spends most of her day in front of a white board thinking “there has to be a better way…”  She passionately fights for her clients and solves their problems before they realize those problems exist. She works with corporate legal departments and both large and small law firms, creating alternative staffing models and strategies for cost-effective and defensible discovery strategies. Previously, Meggan was a Client Development Manager for more than 7 years for a national staffing company and was Senior Program Director with the YMCA where she created and implemented programs in leadership, civic responsibility and the arts. She was responsible for YMCA Youth and Government, the Executive Branch Leadership Institute and Youth Advocacy Day. 


Meggan is currently enrolled in Washington University School of Law in the MLS program.  Meggan graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with a degree in Criminal Justice, a minor in Sociology and a certification from American Humanics in Non-Profit Leadership. While in college, Meggan completed a summer clerkship with the Honorable Judge David Gregory Kays, Federal Judge for the Western District of Missouri. She was also program coordinator for the Jackson County Family Court. She pretends to like running but actually hates it and someday hopes to own a vineyard.
