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

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!

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.
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!

Legal Authority is effective

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
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.
Moving back to New York from Los Angeles to do entertainment law seemed like a pipe dream to me. Legal Authority helped me send out hundreds of letters, and I got two interviews and a great job with a great entertainment firm.

Legal Authority Exceeded My Expectations

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.
-Daniel S.
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!
-Anne L.
I am writing to describe the results I received from Legal Authority's services. First, let me describe myself. I am a third-year law student at a first-tier NY law school. I will be graduating in the top 15% of my class, and I have extensive judicial clerkship experience.

With your help, I sent out 400 resumes throughout the NYC area looking at transactional areas of law, including tax and corporate law. I knew this area was very difficult, but because my background consists of nothing else, I felt compelled. The person I spoke with initially warned me that my results may not be as excellent as other clients.

However, a little more than three months later, I just accepted a position with a tax boutique firm. It is an excellent firm, and they were not advertising with anyone. My resume crossed the hiring partner's desk at the right time.

You provide an excellent, professional service, and I am very glad I availed myself of such. Thank you.

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.
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.

Legal Authority Worked for Me

After using your service, I received dozens of offers for interviews. Within a month I had narrowed down my search and accepted a position that provided me exactly what I was looking for. I'm sure I would never have found this job had it not been for Legal Authority. Thanks again!
-Bob
After sending out 500 letters, I got two interviews and one offer. All it takes is one!! Thanks for helping. Because I had very little legal experience, I kept working in ad sales during law school.
-Jeff
I mailed my resumes and I have started to get responses. So far: two calls for interviews (yeah!)

Thank you!

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 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!
