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

Thanks for your advice. One of the interviews went really well and the other two were just OK mainly because I wasn't as interested or familiar with their areas of practice (medical malpractice) as I was with the other firm (general practice). At the interview that went really well, I managed to go through rounds with all the partners, but was edged out by a candidate that had more trial experience. I will follow up with the firms that haven't contacted me yet. My friends from my graduating class tell me that I am doing REALLY well compared to most and some of them are probably going to call you.
-Melissa T.
I have a new address because I have gotten a new job. For that, I wish to extend my appreciation for all the help and hard work you and your staff put into this project. I could not have done it without you. Should the need arise, rest assured that I will be contacting your firm for your assistance once again. Again, thank you.
-Huge
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.

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 received my first call only 23 hours after mailing out my letters. From there, I went on 11 interviews and received two firm offers.
-Kim W.
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.

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.
I mailed my Legal Authority letters on a Wednesday and I had a few interviews set up already by that Thursday! And that is with that 14-month gap in my resume, obviously, you were right about how to handle that. I have had 10 interviews so far, with 2 callbacks, and I am getting close to wrapping up my somewhat epic search. I feel so much hope now that my next job will give me the livable lifestyle I am looking for after the hell I went through at the last firm. Thank you so much.
-E. Lee
As an attorney with more than 12 years of experience, I was a little skeptical about the value that Legal Authority might have for me. However, I must say that I was completely wrong. I have received three interviews thus far--all with firms that seemed very eager to meet with me. None of them asked about a book of business initially, and they seem flexible and willing to negotiate all salary issues. Your writers did a fine job, and obviously, your cover letters worked. Thanks for the effort. I'm very impressed.

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

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!
-Hannah B.
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.
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 mailed over 400 resumes yesterday. Today I received my first phone call to schedule an interview, less than 12 hours later!!!! I must admit, I was a little skeptical about the quick turn around time for responses as indicated by the testimonials of Legal Authority's previous customers. However, I am proud to say that the process really does work!! I will keep you posted. Thanks in advance!
-Theresa H.
Who says you can't find a needle in a haystack? With my Legal Authority mailing, I batted a thousand -- got one interview and one offer, and it was in entertainment law, which my Career Services Office said was almost impossible to break into!
-Jeff F.
Hi. I have gotten 12 interests so far from 700 letters for my in house search. Keep up the good work.

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!
