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 is THE place to begin any legal career search. I was moving from out of state and unsure of my prospects. After Legal Authority polished up my resume and I sent it out with their help, I was turning down interviews! I received four offers out of eight interviews from well-respected large firms and landed my dream job! My employment advocate provided invaluable advice that aided me throughout the process. Your career is worth the investment. I know mine was. Thank you Legal Authority! Thanks again Caroline!
-B.B.
Just wanted you to know that I sent out all of the resumes by the end of last week. Since then I have had six (6) interviews and just accepted a very lucrative offer with a prestigious downtown commercial litigation law firm. I interviewed with them yesterday afternoon and they made me an offer on the spot.

Law firms are still calling me today and I am the one, not them, who is writing rejection letters. Isn't that something? In my entire career, I have never had this type of response or experience.

Thank you and everyone at Legal Authority who had something to do with my success. All your effort and work is greatly appreciated.

Delmon,

I just wanted to express much greatest appreciation for the service I received from Legal Authority. Within two days of emailing my resumes and cover letters to potential employers I received over five requests for interviews and accepted a new position with the firm of Couch White just four days after mailing the resumes and cover letters prepared by Legal Authority.

The services I received from Legal Authority were second to none and I would be more than willing to recommend the services to others. Thank you for all your assistance. Legal Authority provided me just the edge I needed to secure a terrific new career opportunity.

I wanted to thank you for your help in setting up my account with Legal Authority to conduct my job search. I recently accepted a position with a firm in Miami that I would have never located if it were not for Legal Authority! I'm very excited about the job and impending move to Miami. I've recommended Legal Authority to all my friends who have not found jobs and I'm sure they'll be calling any day!
-R.Z.
Offer! The firm is a smaller firm that works in a variety of areas like business and commercial litigation. They seemed really excited that they got my resume, even though I went to Pace, and didn't do that well. I guess they had been looking quietly for someone for a while and hadn't had any good prospects. Anyways, I start work on Monday and think it will be a good fit for me. Thanks for your hard work.

Legal Authority is effective

I sought a job in Chicago even though I hadn't taken the Illinois Bar. Legal Authority said no sweat. The result: 10 calls and two solid offers.
-Richard D.
My letters resulted in one interview that would have developed into more, I'm sure, had I not gotten an offer from another firm first! Thank you for your help in my job search. Even as a graduate of a top-tier law school, I found your service and advice to be on point and extremely beneficial. Why would anyone want to work with a recruiter?
-Mark
Thanks for your help! I just received the documents yesterday and only made a few changes. I was able to finalize them yesterday evening and send them off to Production with confidence. I really thought that the cover letter captured my tone and enthusiasm for my work in a way that I have always been unable to. It was a great decision to work with you!

Legal Authority Exceeded My Expectations

I was worried that, after paying a grand, I wouldn't get results from mailing 654 letters. Well check this out: I put them all in the mail on Tuesday (9/2), had a call back that Thursday (9/4), an interview that Friday morning and a same-day job offer Friday afternoon (9/5). There were other interviews, but I took the job in securities litigation that I really wanted in the first place. Thanks for your help and your company's service.
-Aaron
Please put this on your site, because I think it can help others. I struggled through school at a bottom tier school with great difficulty. I am 43 years old, wife and mother, and while I was studying, I was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Although I was thankfully able to both recover and graduate, my final GPA was under 3.00, I then failed the bar, and I knew that in the job market I would be competing with 25-year-old superstars from the best universities. Under these circumstances, for me to even be getting called for interviews (3 so far!) is a miracle. But, amazingly, I now have a job offer which is perfect for me. No one should give up hope while they can still get help from people like you. God Bless.
-Linda
After searching for a job on my own, I knew that I was going to need some help. I contacted Legal Authority to assist me in my job search. I have been so impressed with the shipment and organization of the material and how thorough and efficient the service has been. I feel confident that I will be able to find a job, and I appreciate all that Legal Authority has done to help me on my way.

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.
I went to school in another state and was trying to break into the Los Angeles market. I had used all of my connections and talked to everyone I knew. There were lots of promises of help, but NOTHING panned out. I turned to Legal Authority as my last hope. I did a search in Los Angeles and sent out 600 letters and got eight interviews. I just accepted a position making $85,000 per year, with the promise of a raise in six months. I KNOW I WOULD HAVE NOT FOUND THIS JOB WITHOUT LEGAL AUTHORITY!!!!!
-J.S.
I just wanted to let you know that I accepted an offer and will be starting my new job. Thank you so for all of your help. I had my doubts about Legal Authority, and my husband was very reluctant. I decided that I was going to trust my instinct and go with your service. I sent out 500 resumes and cover letters and got a tremendous response. My letters were addressed for a Monday, and Tuesday I had two interviews scheduled. Every day, I was getting a new interview; I even had five scheduled for one day! All the recruiters who I talked to told me to use the Internet and look in the paper; they couldn't help me, because my background was strictly criminal. It was a wonderful feeling to know that I was still marketable and my criminal background was not going to hold me back. I accepted an offer after 14 interviews and never would have found my new position if it weren't for Legal Authority. Thank you so much for everything!!

Legal Authority Worked for Me

A firm just contacted me for an interview yesterday, so I'm excited about that and need some information about the firm. The name is ***. Also, one of the schools contacted me to express an interest - I guess their business school is thinking of looking for a business law professor. That's great!
-Susan
I am happy to report that as a result of using Legal Authority, I have received and accepted an offer from one of the firms with which you put me into contact. Actually, I received several callbacks, went on a number of interviews, and received a number of offers. All in all, if it were not for Legal Authority, I would either still be pounding the pavement or would have accepted a job that I did not want. Thanks!
-Greg T.
We spoke in the Spring of 2002 about in-house job opportunities in Los Angeles or San Francisco for myself. At time, I had turned down an offer to lead a legal/business division of Telecom Italia in Italy due to a death in my family. In response, I decided to move to Chicago, used your company's mass mailing service, and received several job offers. I've been very happy since.

My company is hiring a staff counsel (in-house attorney position). It has been posted on some websites but I thought your team may be interested in directing potential candidates to apply for that job here in the Chicago area.

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.
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.
