What Legal Authority Does Works!


A. Harrison Barnes

At Legal Authority, we are getting attorneys positions every day of the week because what we can do for you actually works. According to the National Association of Law Placement: “The most common means of obtaining a job was a letter or other “self-initiated contact” with the employer…” Consider: We have the largest database of legal employers in the World and there is probably better than a 99.9% chance that your next legal job will be with an employer in our database. How you get to them is up to you … you can do it now or you can do it later.


Be smart.


In today’s legal market, over 85% of all available attorney positions are never publicized. The most efficient way to get these positions is through targeted mailing. Legal search firms fill less than 5% of all available positions. We have heard over and over again that “networking” is simply not the most effective approach. Ads posted on job posting boards or in classified sections of legal newspapers often draw well over 1,000 responses.


We are not a recruiting firm or a job posting board. Simply put, we are the legal profession’s direct link to employers. At Legal Authority’s core is our strategy of allowing individuals to apply to legal jobs on their own, which drives our capabilities into a one-of-a-kind employment continuum, with our database at its center. We can cover any given market more efficiently, cost-effectively and in less time than any source, anywhere.


Choose professionals


We have a staff of over 30 people who are updating our contact information 24 hours a day. Nobody tries harder to get attorneys positions. In addition, one of our attorneys will effectively revise your resume and cover letter to ensure that it is as good as possible. Do not make the mistake of approaching employers without having professionals review and revise your resume and cover letter.


Delay at your own cost


With salaries for most attorneys exceeding $50,000, delay can be extremely costly. At an annual salary of $120,000, for example, you are losing $10,000 each month you are not working. This does not even reflect the amount of money you are losing in benefits and other employer-sponsored perks. If you are unhappy with your current position, or your organization is in trouble, the emotional costs of remaining with an employer can be even more severe.


Choose Legal Authority!


All we do is assist attorneys in getting positions. We are empathetic with each attorney’s particular circumstances and we will do our absolute best to assist you. We have the largest database of legal employers anywhere. However you are going about your job search, getting your resume in front of the decision makers is what it is all about. We can help you get your information in front of the people you need in order to get the jobs you want.
