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.
-Melissa T.
I'm never listening to my Career Services Office again!! Not only did they tell me that Philadelphia was such a bad area that I am going to have a hard time finding a job, they also said that instead of paying for a service, I should do this on my own! Ridiculous - you guys did work with my resume and cover letter that I never would have, and it was a lifesaver. I didn't have to try to gather data from places like Martindale every weeknight - you guys just helped me reach 300 employers in less than two weeks! … I've gotten two interviews already, and one of the firms had just lost an associate the day before they got my resume, so they hadn't even started looking for someone and my resume was in the right place at the right time!
-David
I recently took a position at a law firm in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Contact with this firm was initiated through my Legal Authority mailing. Thank you for your efficient and effective service.

Legal Authority is effective

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.
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!
-Todd G.
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

I wanted to do human rights law and couldn't get noticed. Now, I have two interviews with firms that rejected me when I was doing this myself. You guys did an amazing job. Thank you so much.
-Ryan
I send the resumes out last Wednesday targeting small to midsize firms with practices either in environmental or bankruptcy in the bay area. So far I have gotten one call for an interview at a 5 person firm with practices in: Bankruptcy Law, Creditors Rights Law, Commercial Litigation, Business Litigation, Insurance Defense, Personal Injury, Public Entity, Medical Malpractice. Sounds really really good.
-Heather
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.
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

I did accept a position in Jan. but a number of problems have arisen such as no office being established in the Charlotte area where I reside thus I've had to get an apartment & live 1 1/2 hrs. away, the owner is now wanting all the attorneys to be partners, etc...thereby I would like to start looking for a position in the Charlotte area -- what is the process for utilizing your services to do this? It worked so well I want to do it again but this time I will be pickier - because I have the luxury.
-Becky
Hi. I have gotten 12 interests so far from 700 letters for my in house search. Keep up the good work.
-H.A.
I hate litigation. I hate it with a fiery, fiery passion. Even though I was at an Am Law 100 firm, I basically could not stand my job one minute longer. Thanks for helping me make the transition to a job I love!

Legal Authority is a Good Value for Money

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!

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.
