Testimonials
What Our Clients Are Saying
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!

My law degree was earned in China. I thought getting a summer job with my background was impossible, because my Career Services Office couldn't help me, but Legal Authority's marketing got me the job. I'm so grateful.

Thanks to the mailings, I got 6 interviews and 4 offers and I'm still hearing from firms asking for more credentials and interviews. It took some time working with the writer to get the perfect cover letter, but within days of dropping in the mail 500+ letters to San Francisco and Sacramento firms, I began getting calls and emails for interviews. Choosing two legal markets paid off for me because my first choice city was much less responsive. Within about 7 weeks from dropping the letters in the mail, I accepted an offer from an SF firm where I will be earning more money than I had anticipated. One hiring partner pointed to the strength of my cover letter in deciding to call me in for an interview, despite his aversion to hiring recent graduates. At least two of the firms that made offers weren't officially hiring. I almost did not use Legal Authority because I did not have the money for it, and my career services adviser frowned upon large, direct mailings. But the deferred payment option and the prospect of writing hundreds of cover letters while studying for the bar convinced me to try it. The service yielded results I could not get with on-campus interviewing, my adviser's help, or my own small-scale efforts. I would certainly use Legal Authority again, and have recommended it to some of my classmates still looking for jobs out of law school.
