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 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
I was an out-of-work litigator and was desperate. My Legal Authority counselor calmed me down and redid my entire written presentation. I got the interview I sought, and it's right here in Denver.
-Jon H.
Sent 300 letters, got 3 interviews within one week, and 8 days after sending the letters I had a great offer. I love the firm and the environment. I am enjoying my new job immensely and the location is so perfect. Thank you again for all your help. I could not have done this without you or your company.

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.
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.
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.

Legal Authority Exceeded My Expectations

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.
-Dan
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
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!

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

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.
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 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!!!!!

Legal Authority Worked for Me

I honestly thought I had no chance because I haven't passed the bar yet, but I just got called for an interview! THANK YOU!
-W. A
Hello, I am a recent grad of a top 50 school. I also speak fluent Japanese and spent two years living there. In my prior career I was an intelligence analyst. I have 1 interview so far from the mailing. I'll keep you posted.
-Mark
My firm moved, and, presto, I was out of work. Legal Authority got me back in the mix immediately. I've already had four offers. When I get ready to move again, I'll head for Legal Authority.

Legal Authority is a Good Value for Money

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.
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 would like to thank you for all of your help during this process. I truly could not have done it without you or Legal Authority. Given the nature of the profession, I believe that an attorney looking for a job must consider Legal Authority a necessary, indispensable service. The cost is money well spent. As a person who tried to find a job on his own once, my advice to others is: don't do it. Your likelihood of finding the best position is drastically reduced. After using Legal Authority, I received 10 requests for interviews! For this reason, I was able to make an informed choice that best suited me, rather than settle for a firm because it was the only one that offered me a job. I can assure you, this is a much better position to be in. I intend to recommend Legal Authority to all of my friends in the profession who are looking for other positions.

Thanks again.
