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.

From start to finish, Legal Authority helped me secure an associate position with one of my top choice firms in downtown Los Angeles. Less than 2 weeks after sending out 400+ resume and cover letters, I received calls for NINE interviews, all from very respectable firms, and wound up with THREE job offers. The hardest part of the process was deciding between the job offers...Legal Authority does all the grunt work for you! I'd especially like to thank Caroline Lee...those of you who are lucky enough to have Caroline as your employee advocate will see that her enthusiasm and support will guide you along the way and make the hiring process a bit less scary and a little more exciting!
-L.A.
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!

Legal Authority is effective

I sent 300 letters and got three interviews within one week, and eight 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.
-Angela
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 got an offer in Louisville! Combined litigation and transactional just like I wanted. I had feared that my experience was too heavy on the public sector and my social work stuff to interest a firm, but you guys really pulled it off. Thanks again!
-Chris
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 tried my own mailing, but marketing myself did not work. The counselor I spoke with explained how sending out 20 or 30 letters randomly isn't even worth my time. I turned the reins over to Legal Authority and you helped me send out 560 letters throughout the Bay Area. I got six interviews and a solid offer. The firm is great, and I never would have found it my way.

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

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!
-Claudia
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!!
-Linda W.
I am thrilled to inform you that after sending 225 letters, I got interviews with six employers and finally accepted an offer today with a small firm doing civil and criminal litigation. Great position, especially for a forty something recent law grad with so-so grades and no litigation experience. This firm is highly selective and never advertises openings, relying solely on referrals from colleagues. If it had not been for your services, I would never have learned of this firm; my letter landed in their office at exactly the right time, and I was the first person they interviewed. Thank you for my new career!

Legal Authority Worked for Me

I am a 2001 grad of Widener University - been a little slow to get started, but with your help I got a job, and I haven't even gotten my bar results yet! Thanks!!!!
-Kerry
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 thought that having someone experienced in the copyright department and a professional in this field was a great help in writing a professional resume and cover letter for me that reflected my background very well. It was indeed a great help and I would certainly recommend their Resume and Cover Letter writing.

Legal Authority is a Good Value for Money

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.
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.
I was a JAG attorney in Virginia, and Legal Authority got me a real estate job in New York City despite my lack of experience. Well, 580 letters later, I got three interviews and two offers. This is a service that I will recommend to all of my military attorney colleagues because even though it's expensive, it's the best money I've ever spent.
