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!
-L.A.
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.
-Melissa T.
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

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.
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
After struggling with writing my own resume and cover letter, I had Legal Authority take over. I was extremely pleased with how Legal Authority redesigned the entire look and style of my resume and cover letter, giving them a more professional image. Thanks, Legal Authority, for doing such an amazing job!

Legal Authority Exceeded My Expectations

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
Amazing. I was on medical leave, but still got 10 interviews and I'm still getting calls three weeks later. Legal Authority rocks!
-Tony L.
IT WORKED! I am so excited. About four weeks ago, I got a job paying 40% better! You guys were right on the money...515 letters, four interviews, (I rejected two without going) and ONE great job. And one week ago, I got a call and a follow up email from the top law firm in Houston--you know, worldwide locations, 500-plus attorneys. I turned it down. I'll recommend Legal Authority to all my friends. Oh, and by the way, when I interviewed, the partners kept asking me how I found out about the firm. I just said that I had done my research. Thank you so much. After seven years, I have a career.

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

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!
-R.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!
-Michael S.
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.

Legal Authority Worked for Me

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
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.
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

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 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!
-Russ
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.

Three strikes: bottom-tier school, practically no legal experience, no bar admission. Yet, I got two interviews and counting. Your service is truly awesome, and I will recommend it to all my friends.

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 ...

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.
