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 gave me a chance to get my name and experience out there. The resume you did for me was such a good representation of my expertise. I had eleven interviews and several job offers.

I just wanted to email and say THANK YOU!! I don't know if you remember me, but I used that other company to do a mailing and it was so bad that I was about to give up completely and move back home with my parents. You were very helpful over the phone and I felt like you really listened to me and counseled me on my issues. You were right, too - all I needed was to get something of higher quality to the right firm at the right time. So far, I've gotten four interviews, and I only sent the letters out a week ago. This is GREAT! I'll keep you updated as I go on the interviews, too.
-S.B.
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!

Legal Authority is effective

I was practicing in a small firm where I saw no growth opportunity for myself (I am a litigator who used to be in insurance). I got an offer from a place where I feel I can get on partner track. Thanks. I needed this.
-Robert
As a second-year law student at a top-20 law school, I was pretty sure that my career services office had my job search covered. I found out, after on-campus interviewing netted zero interviews, that I was wrong. I'm glad I used you guys. Out of the 250 or so letters I sent out, I got more interviews than I expected, but that wasn't the really surprising part. I got NINE job offers! I've got a great summer job that will definitely lead into a position once I graduate. I can't thank you enough. You guys really did a great job!
-Christine B.
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

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
Hi! I just got my second call-back at a great firm in Detroit. With my law degree from a school in India and my residence in Canada, I truly thought I was lost. Your company was able to assist me greatly, and I thank you for it.
-Priya
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!

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 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.
-Mike M.
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!

Legal Authority Worked for Me

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.
-R.S.
I had passed the Colorado Bar but couldn't find a job. Enter Legal Authority and I got four interviews and two offers in the healthcare field just as I'd hoped.
-Cindy T.
I have recently accepted a wonderful position at a firm in Irvine that I could not have found without Legal Authority. Thank you so much for your work and the effort you put into my job search on my behalf. I am ecstatic.

Legal Authority is a Good Value for Money

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.
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.
-Sheila S.
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!
