What Our Clients Are Saying
Behind every successful job search, there's a story to tell. Who made the final decision? How juicy was the offer? What quality ultimately sold the candidate to the employer? How'd they even get their foot inside the door?

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!

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.
After reviewing my completed cover letter and resume, I couldn't believe the difference Legal Authority made! I finally feel confident about my credentials and my ability to find a job. Thank you, Legal Authority, for making me look so good.
-William F.
I had a number of friends who used Legal Authority. The service came highly recommended. The only reason I thought the service would not work for me was because I was a litigation associate and I wanted to finally do the transactional work that I have wanted to do since graduation. I thought that I would never be able to do the work because I was not recruited straight out of law school. So I sent out 350 letters to corporate firms in Los Angeles, and I got five interviews. I would have liked more, but I did find a job doing the transactional work, which I was longing for. Now, I feel like I am finally on the road to one day being a General Counsel for a company.
-J.K.
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 was very, very hesitant about Legal Authority. It sounded like a good idea, and the marketing seemed great. Still, I was afraid that that was all that it was--just marketing. So I talked to an Employment Advocate and then waited about a week before getting started. During that week, I asked everyone I knew about Legal Authority. What finally helped me with my decision was that an associate at the law firm that I was clerking at told me that he used Legal Authority. I did not even tell him that I was looking for a job, but when he heard that I was, he called me in the office and told me about "the best-kept secret." He said Legal Authority had gotten him his last two jobs and he was planning to use them again in about six months. So I used the service and sent out 550 letters in New York. In about one week, I had set up six interviews, turned down three, and still had requests. I have just taken a job in the city of my dreams at a firm I love! Thank you, Legal Authority!
-C.B.
I sought a job in Chicago even though I hadn't taken the Illinois Bar. Legal Authority said no sweat. The result: 10 calls and two solid offers.
-Richard D.
I wanted a job in Texas. I sent out 700 letters on Monday afternoon and got my first call on Tuesday morning at 8:00 a.m.!! So far, I've had 11 interviews! Thank you so much for all of your work.
-Kim W.
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.
-Mike S.
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.
-Kim W.
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
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
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 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.
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!
-H.P., Chatham, N.J.
My letters resulted in one interview that would have developed into more, I'm sure, had I not gotten an offer from another firm first! Thank you for your help in my job search. Even as a graduate of a top-tier law school, I found your service and advice to be on point and extremely beneficial. Why would anyone want to work with a recruiter?
