What Our Clients Are Saying
Legal Authority has helped thousands of attorneys and law students find new opportunities and new careers throughout the country. You would think that we have heard every possible story by now, every set of circumstances that led to success; but no, we haven't. Every client is different, and each one spins a different tale of his or her job search—pitfalls, promising opportunities, and philosophies.

Legal Authority would like to share some of these stories with you. While these can't indicate the level of success that you will necessarily have in your job search, they are certainly an indication of how people like yourself have felt about our service and product. Hopefully your letter can join these ranks soon!

Dealing with customer service is easy

Legal Authority really worked well for me. My Employment Advocate was great. He gave me really sound advice about my resume and cover letter. The writing process took a while, but went very well, and my resume and cover letter looked great. I got a job offer from one of the contacts, and when I called my Employment Advocate, he gave me great advice about negotiating. I am now working and would definitely recommend the service to my colleagues.
-Dana
I have been pleasantly surprised by your service. I was operating under the mentality that this was a last resort, and if it was unsuccessful, I would be forced to open my own practice or move. Two interviews later, with intelligent, pleasant partners at reputable firms, my disposition has improved considerably. You have a wonderful staff, and my results have certainly made me feel better about my ability as a lawyer.
-Jason
Two years into my career, I wanted to switch tracks entirely and get into a firm doing "mainstream" litigation or transaction. I had gone to a school that was suffering from some image problems and, because of an illness in the family, did not take the bar exam until February. I then skipped around in various non-traditional jobs for two years. So in the rigid world of legal recruiters, I had the cards stacked against me. Even though I had done all kinds of interesting things both in and after law school, I wasn't considered "marketable" because I had taken the path less traveled.

I found it very difficult to attract the attention of hiring partners for positions posted on-line. I was convinced that Legal Authority was the way to go, so despite my tight budget, I signed up. My coordinator Caroline was incredibly supportive and thoughtful. She made great suggestions. The production staff was also very responsive and professional.

It's hard looking for a job, but Legal Authority helped me to find my "market". While I hope I don't have to repeat a job search anytime soon, I would use Legal Authority again in a heartbeat!

Legal Authority is effective

Moving back to New York from Los Angeles to do entertainment law seemed like a pipe dream to me. Legal Authority helped me send out hundreds of letters, and I got two interviews and a great job with a great entertainment firm.
-Mike S.
I have been so impressed with Legal Authority. The service that I have received has been outstanding, and the materials that I have been provided with have been above and beyond what I expected. I think very highly of Legal Authority and would recommend it to any attorney looking for a professional and reliable service.
-Andy R.
As a second-year law student at a top-20 law school, I was pretty sure that my career services office had my job search covered. I found out, after on-campus interviewing netted zero interviews, that I was wrong. I'm glad I used you guys. Out of the 250 or so letters I sent out, I got more interviews than I expected, but that wasn't the really surprising part. I got NINE job offers! I've got a great summer job that will definitely lead into a position once I graduate. I can't thank you enough. You guys really did a great job!

Legal Authority Exceeded My Expectations

I wanted to transition from my government job to an in-house position. I got the interview I didn't think I'd ever get. Thanks, Legal Authority.
-Robin A.
I mailed about 525 envelopes yesterday, and have already received two calls back from lawyers interested in hiring me. One call led to a temporary research job working with a lawyer, and he has offered me $20 per hour for the job. The typical research clerk positions, suitable for pre-licensed grads, coming off the school job board have been offering like $16 or less. This lawyer who hired me -- after a five minute conversation -- understands that I'm still looking for a permanent job. So this first little legal job comes as a drink of cool water on a desert eve.

So thank you for the help. Legal Authority has factually done more for my career in one day than my law school could do in three years. The law school could easily say, "why don't you apply every year to about a quarter of the legal job market in our area, here's a database with mail merge." But they don't.

The first job is the hardest job to get, and the little break that I needed has already been attained.

Sincere Thanks!
-James P.
I attended a non-ABA accredited school that doesn't even require LSATs to get in. Yet I am getting calls for interviews. I think you really presented my strengths well so that I can overcome my lack of "brand name" school. I had hoped that some employers would be able to see the true value under the less-than-perfect academics and you helped them do that. Thanks.

Legal Authority is Much Better than other Methods of Looking for a Legal Job

I obtained employment through Legal Authority's service. I doubt I would have been able to do this on my own. Thank you very much!
-Michael S.
My law degree was earned in China. I thought getting a summer job with my background was impossible, because my Career Services Office couldn't help me, but Legal Authority's marketing got me the job. I'm so grateful.
-Z. Y.
I recently accepted an attractive offer of full-time employment that, but for Legal Authority, I never would have gotten. After months of trying to work with recruiters to no avail, I tried your service and had an interview scheduled in two days. More followed, including callbacks and a couple of offers. It was nice to be in the position of choosing, and without you I could not have done that. Thank you!

Legal Authority Worked for Me

I have gotten one interview and most importantly, one job offer as a result of my Legal Authority search. I just arrived in the country from England, had no U.S. legal education whatsoever, and my most recent experience in the U.K. was as a post office manager. This will be my first associate position and I am very glad! Brilliant work, thanks much.
-K.P.
I am Class of 2003 and I have barely any legal experience, most of it took place in foreign countries. So far I have 4 interviews. Thanks, I was pretty nervous.
-Aaron
I just wanted to let you know that I am exceedingly pleased with the service. I sent the resumes out last week, and I already have four interviews scheduled. I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

Thanks!

Legal Authority is a Good Value for Money

Whoever said it's impossible to find a job fresh out of law school and without a bar license obviously has never met Legal Authority. I didn't have any problem at all! During my last year of law school, I approached my career services for help in finding a job back in my home state. While they were great with me, they just didn't have the resources to help.

Then, someone suggested the targeted mailing scheme. Since I didn't know much about it, I didn't really care to follow up on it. It wasn't until after the bar that the reality of the real world finally kicked in, and I decided to contact Legal Authority. It was the BEST decision I ever made! AND the BEST investment ever!

Caroline Lee was absolutely wonderful!! She listened to my goals and suggested an attack plan that proved to be quite effective. The legal staff was great, too. They helped me write a very impressive cover letter and resume that my employer still raves about! I was really lucky to have found Legal Authority, and especially, Caroline.

Two weeks after I mailed out my cover letter and resume, I secured five interviews and had offers on the table that I simply couldn't resist. I am now with a very prestigious mid-sized west-coast law firm, practicing in the corporate/commercial litigation and estate planning sections. Exactly what I wanted and wished for! I could not have asked for a better gift this year. Thank you, Legal Authority!
-B.C.
My results are like one of those credit card commercials.
Cost of law school: $90,000.
Cost of BarBri and Bar Exam in California: $2,500.
Cost of sending out 550 resumes throughout Southern California: $1,300.00.
Receiving 10 interviews and two job offers in two weeks: Priceless.
Thanks for all your help.
-B.O.
I sent out 150 or so resumes to Colorado with your service six months ago and got three interviews and two offers. I love my firm and the job, but my wife hates the cold. I need you again; let's look somewhere warm! Please contact me soon. You guys were the best investment!

I had no future in financial advising, so I made the decision to go back to school and get my law degree and LLM from a top 25 school. I still had trouble finding work until I did the mailing with you...
