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

I had the most amazing success from my job search. I sent out letters to almost every law firm in the Sacramento area. The representative I spoke with convinced me that I had to get maximum exposure because I went to a fourth-tier school and have spent the last few years in a non-law firm job. I got a ton of interviews. I can't even remember how many I had to turn down, because two weeks after I sent out the letter, I had no less than THREE OFFERS! WOW! You guys did great! Thank you!
-Ken
I recently took a position at a law firm in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Contact with this firm was initiated through my Legal Authority mailing. Thank you for your efficient and effective service.
-Jeff G.
I just wanted to email and say THANK YOU!! I don't know if you remember me, but I used that other company to do a mailing and it was so bad that I was about to give up completely and move back home with my parents. You were very helpful over the phone and I felt like you really listened to me and counseled me on my issues. You were right, too - all I needed was to get something of higher quality to the right firm at the right time. So far, I've gotten four interviews, and I only sent the letters out a week ago. This is GREAT! I'll keep you updated as I go on the interviews, too.

Legal Authority is effective

I have been working for 6 years in several positions and I have never experienced such an easy transition as through using your service. I have three offers, actual job offers, to choose from, out of 11 interviews, which I know from experience is an excellent success rate for 500 cold contacts!
-Joe
I got a new job in civil litigation, which is just what I wanted (I was an assistant D.A. before). Legal Authority is an excellent, effective service, and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks.
-Lyle
I had a number of friends who used Legal Authority. The service came highly recommended. The only reason I thought the service would not work for me was because I was a litigation associate and I wanted to finally do the transactional work that I have wanted to do since graduation. I thought that I would never be able to do the work because I was not recruited straight out of law school. So I sent out 350 letters to corporate firms in Los Angeles, and I got five interviews. I would have liked more, but I did find a job doing the transactional work, which I was longing for. Now, I feel like I am finally on the road to one day being a General Counsel for a company.

Legal Authority Exceeded My Expectations

I wanted to be a litigator, but didn't have experience and didn't think I could compete with people from prestigious law schools. I got four interviews and four offers. Thank you very much.
-Pete J.
The service provided by Legal Authority was excellent. I am thoroughly satisfied. I received from 10-15 calls by firms seeking an interview. I went on about 10 interviews. I decided to take a position with a family law firm that is about 10 minutes from my home. I am extremely happy.
-Christopher B.
Got an interview and offer last night and other firms are still interested. I wish I'd known about Legal Authority sooner, because the work you do is nothing short of wonderful!

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

Some people said that because I went to a top-10 school, I didn't need any extra help outside of the career services office (actually, I think those people worked for the career services office). But they did not get me any interviews, and you did. Thank you so much.
-Cara
As a third-year law student, I tried marketing myself and got nowhere. I needed serious help to find a patent job, and my Career Services Office was useless. I used your company to send out 650 letters to patent firms, and I've gotten interviews and serious offers on the table already.
-Amy Z.
You have amazed me. I was working in the Bay Area as a trademark attorney, and due to the economy, I was let go. I wanted to move to Los Angeles and do the same kind of work. I spoke with a number of recruiters and looked at legal advertisements on a daily basis, and I found nothing. I sent out resumes on my own and didn't have much luck. Not a single interview for a trademark position. Even the recruiters I spoke to didn't know about any openings. After working with your company, I sent my application to more than 100 different firms in the Los Angeles area that have trademark practices. Surprisingly, I got a number of interviews! In fact, I got an interview at a firm that I had never heard of before that does high-level trademark litigation. I was shocked. How could no one have known about this? The salary I was offered was also exceptional. I owe my success to you, Legal Authority. Thank you!

Legal Authority Worked for Me

I have spent the last 15 years as an attorney at a government agency. I wanted so badly to go in-house and do some more interesting work (and get better pay!) Thanks to you, I have, and I thank you very much.
-Yonhi P.
I mailed my resumes and I have started to get responses. So far: two calls for interviews (yeah!)

Thank you!
-Jennifer S.
I hate litigation. I hate it with a fiery, fiery passion. Even though I was at an Am Law 100 firm, I basically could not stand my job one minute longer. Thanks for helping me make the transition to a job I love!

Legal Authority is a Good Value for Money

Prior to getting my materials from Legal Authority, I had already sent out several resumes with no responses after a month. These were on jobs posted on web sites and through the bar journal. One particular reply that I eventually received stated that there were more than a hundred applicants. Within 10 days of sending out about 300 resumes from Legal Authority, I had 4 calls for interviews and 2 of those wound up offering me jobs...and it cost me less than if I would have hired a headhunter.
-G.Y.
Thanks to Legal Authority, I went from a $35K paralegal at a top firm to an actual attorney making $80K at a mid-sized firm. I'm getting to do the IP work that I wanted, and I got several interviews out of the 300 or so letters I sent out. This was one investment I'm proud of. Thanks.
-T.H.
I got two more calls today. This is so incredible. And ****** just sent me a letter today, asking me to call and interview as well. I've done a lot of targeted mailing before. I have never had any sort of response like this. I've gotten at LEAST 60 letters back, some very terse and two sentences, the standard thank-you-very-much-but-not-interested, but also MANY entire-page-length letters asking me to please write back later in case something opens up. The money I sent you guys was probably the best investment I've ever made. I really wanted to change jobs and get into a firm next school term, and firms are like in a bidding war for me to clerk for them or something. This is so FUN! I have five firm offers! I don't know what to DO!??? I am telling all my friends at school about you! YOU GUYS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE CAREER SERVICES OFFICE and ON CAMPUS INTERVIEWING! YOUR ADS ARE REALLY TRUE!

Thank you!

Every interview - practically - I went on was so intensely interesting.

Thanks again.
