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

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.
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!
-R.Z.
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.

Legal Authority is effective

I got a new job in civil litigation, which is just what I wanted (I was an assistant D.A. before). Legal Authority is an excellent, effective service, and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks.
-Lyle
I have been working for 6 years in several positions and I have never experienced such an easy transition as through using your service. I have three offers, actual job offers, to choose from, out of 11 interviews, which I know from experience is an excellent success rate for 500 cold contacts!
-Joe
Thanks for your help! I just received the documents yesterday and only made a few changes. I was able to finalize them yesterday evening and send them off to Production with confidence. I really thought that the cover letter captured my tone and enthusiasm for my work in a way that I have always been unable to. It was a great decision to work with you!

Legal Authority Exceeded My Expectations

Just wanted to thank you for all your help. I found a great little firm where I'm much happier and I owe it all to you. This place is just the right size, not too small not too big, and the people are very chill. The firm does both transactional and litigation work, and I'm getting great experience. I got quite a high number of interviews, I'd say close to 10 places, plus I got calls even after accepting this job, from great places like Boies Schiller and Littler Mendelsohn. Anyway, it all worked out and I'm very grateful, especially considering how bad the market seems to be these days.

You're the best!
-Veronica
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.
-V. B.
I went to one of the worst law schools in the nation, and the only kind of work experience I had, whatsoever, was in carpet care. I don't know what you guys did, but I got 5 interviews and 3 call backs! You are unbelievable, thank you so much.

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

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 recently accepted an attractive offer of full-time employment that, but for Legal Authority, I never would have gotten. After months of trying to work with recruiters to no avail, I tried your service and had an interview scheduled in two days. More followed, including callbacks and a couple of offers. It was nice to be in the position of choosing, and without you I could not have done that. Thank you!
-Hannah B.
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

Good news! I got an interview and a callback! I'm pretty happy about this--no law firm experience (CPA and tax work only so far), but a Los Angeles firm seems interested :-)
-Betty N.
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.
-Julia
I have gotten one interview and most importantly, one job offer as a result of my Legal Authority search. I just arrived in the country from England, had no U.S. legal education whatsoever, and my most recent experience in the U.K. was as a post office manager. This will be my first associate position and I am very glad! Brilliant work, thanks much.

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!
-Russ
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 got two more calls today. This is so incredible. And ****** just sent me a letter today, asking me to call and interview as well. I've done a lot of targeted mailing before. I have never had any sort of response like this. I've gotten at LEAST 60 letters back, some very terse and two sentences, the standard thank-you-very-much-but-not-interested, but also MANY entire-page-length letters asking me to please write back later in case something opens up. The money I sent you guys was probably the best investment I've ever made. I really wanted to change jobs and get into a firm next school term, and firms are like in a bidding war for me to clerk for them or something. This is so FUN! I have five firm offers! I don't know what to DO!??? I am telling all my friends at school about you! YOU GUYS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE CAREER SERVICES OFFICE and ON CAMPUS INTERVIEWING! YOUR ADS ARE REALLY TRUE!

Thank you!

Every interview - practically - I went on was so intensely interesting.

Thanks again.
