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 Exceeded My Expectations

Thank you so much for your help! I sent out my letters a month ago (almost 300!) and got 10 or 15 interviews. I only decided to go on four or five because by the fourth one, I already had an offer! I'm working at a mid-sized firm outside of Dallas. I got offered a job at a huge firm in downtown Dallas, but even though the salary was higher, I liked the smaller one better. I'm working there now and just love it. Your service was the best thing I could have ever done!
-Angela
As an attorney with more than 12 years of experience, I was a little skeptical about the value that Legal Authority might have for me. However, I must say that I was completely wrong. I have received three interviews thus far--all with firms that seemed very eager to meet with me. None of them asked about a book of business initially, and they seem flexible and willing to negotiate all salary issues. Your writers did a fine job, and obviously, your cover letters worked. Thanks for the effort. I'm very impressed.
-Dan
I was determined to get out of the city and find a small town to make my home, but there is no way I would possibly have found a job here without your incredible service. You truly have EVERY law firm in the nation listed.
-J.K.
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
Guys, I got a job. I think I am one of your greater success stories. Here's why. I finished law school in 1994, but have never held a real associate position due to my own and my husband's military careers, being transferred all over the world--oh, and by the way, raising three kids in between! I wouldn't trade it for anything, but it was about time for MY dreams to come true. And thanks to Legal Authority, they have. This means so much to me. My life is no longer on hold.
-Amy
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!
-Chris
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.
Got an interview and offer last night, and other firms are still interested. I wish I'd known about Legal Authority sooner because the work you do is nothing short of wonderful.
-Anne 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.
-R.R.
The service provided by Legal Authority was excellent. I am thoroughly satisfied. I received from 10-15 calls by firms seeking an interview. I went on about 10 interviews. I decided to take a position with a family law firm that is about 10 minutes from my home. I am extremely happy.
-Christopher B.
As an eighth-year attorney from a low-ranked law school, I hoped to move from Florida to Colorado, but ''experts' said I'd be lucky if I could even find contract work. Legal Authority got me 11 interviews in Denver and several offers. It's definitely more than I expected, and I am very impressed with your company. Thank you.
-Ken F.
I wanted to transition from my government job to an in-house position. I got the interview I didn't think I'd ever get. Thanks, Legal Authority.
-Robin A.
I wanted to be a litigator, but didn't have experience and didn't think I could compete with people from prestigious law schools. I got four interviews and four offers. Thank you very much.
-Pete J.
I did a New York City search in environmental/energy and got several offers in the $100K range. I am of course thrilled, and I have recommended Legal Authority to my classmates. I told my buddy that he WILL get a job if he uses you. Another satisfied customer!
-Brian
I tried my own mailing, but marketing myself did not work. The counselor I spoke with explained how sending out 20 or 30 letters randomly isn't even worth my time. I turned the reins over to Legal Authority and you helped me send out 560 letters throughout the Bay Area. I got six interviews and a solid offer. The firm is great, and I never would have found it my way.
-Jennifer R.
