Incompetent, Ill-researched Contacts/Complete Lack of Customer Service

In April 2007, I contacted Legal Authority to perform an employment search based on their advertised expertise in providing thoroughly researched and competent contacts in legal job market. Legal Authority assigned to “Employment Advocate, ” Ms. Jennifer Jeffries.

Eventually, Legal Authority delivered a number of documents & cover letters with directions to sign and post along with résumés. Upon closer review & inspection, these cover letters & corresponding contact lists were found to contain gross errors and contacts that were seriously outdated. Further research on my part revealed that fully eight of 10 listings contained at least one error, such as old contact names, wrong addresses and wrong titles.

Over the course of next 12 months, Ms. Jeffries continued to promise resolution and discharge of the purported fee due to this continued nonperformance. Ms. Jeffries repeatedly assured forthcoming corrections & a resolution of the fees,
but 2 attempts and 18 mos later, I still have not received a product as they agreed to provide.

Based on this nonperformance & assurances from Ms. Jefferies, I believed the former agreement LA was constructively & effectively terminated, but LA continued to pursue fees for services they have never provided. To date, I still have not received a product.

Moast recently, I attempted to negotiate a resolution of this with LA. However, their tactic is that they are right, you are wrong. Instead of negotiating this matter with me, they sent the claim for fees to a collection agency & have threatened to sue for a service they have yet to provide.

I again attempted to resolve this matter by trying to talk in a reasonable and rational manner with Legal Authority & the collection agency, but again they would not discuss the situation beyond the "they are right - you are wrong" tactic. My proposal to them was that I would pay for the services as originally contracted if they correct the collection issue with the credit reporting agencies, waive the interest accrued while we attempted to resolve this matter, and get the product/services corrected & re-issued. They refused to discuss this matter, almost hung-up on me and said until I pay, they will not talk about anything, including providing the services they have not yet provided.

I would not recommend that anyone use this company unless they are prepared to overlook the poorly-researched data provided. They claim to offer a service that helps alleviate the time and money needed to invest in a job search. Instead, I spent hours researching and correcting the contact information they provided and still have been able to resolve this matter.

Ms. Jeffries has provided and done all the tasks that she has said she would do.

I have on many occasions sat and talked with Ms. Jeffries about her resolutions, and have never found a flaw with them. Legal Authority has been a fantastic company, and a complete pleasure to work with when needed.

Do you really expect if you owe someone a sum of money that they will be completely civil with you? have you never lent out money to someone who took a bit to long to return it? Its not a good feeling is it?

In short, If you want a good company to deal with, deal with Legal Authority.

Legal Authority is not a scam, this is a wonderful website that I have used many times. I Love browsing through it all the time and have great experience using the site. I don't know how anyone has had bad experiences with Legal authority and would recommend Legal Authority to others anytime and have done so to fellows plenty of times. I am thankful for this site and all it does, it is so easy to use and have never had any problems with the site. Legal Authority is the best I have seen out there and plan on using it a lot in the future. Please give Legal Authority a shot, you will not be disappointed at all by the site and the services it provides. I was introduced to the site by a friend who knew that I would find it very useful and I have found it that useful and more! Legal Authority is professional and top notch. I am appalled that someone is reporting such an experience with Legal Authority for I have found a job with this site and been completely happy and thrilled with it. Thank you Legal Authority!!

My experience was Legal Authority was great. Legal Authority is a leader in connecting jobs and law students, and proved this when they not only helped me find a job but also had professionals review my work first. I found their resume advice and cover letter assistance to be incredibly helpful in creating a more professional document that received nothing but positive results.

My ideal job hunting wasn't limited to the states, and Legal Authority even helped me look abroad. They helped me look for employment in several major corporations, law firms, government positions, community organizations... more places than I ever thought to look. The advise they provided was right on target for my ideal job interviews.

I've tried other job searching sites and resume services, but nothing was designed for law students like Legal Authority. I think all law students should use Legal Authority simply because it works!

Legal Authority is a scam. They post fake, non-existent jobs on job boards. When you contact them about the jobs, they admit they do not "have actual individual job listings." (Jennifer Jeffries told me this personally). They are merely trolling for job seekers so they can sell them their bogus resume services.

I previously bought their resume service and many of the addresses of the firms they provided were incorrect and non-deliverable. It is true that you can easily get the company names and addresses yourself. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY. I have filed a complaint with the FTC.

The above two positive comments are complete BS posted by people probably paid by A. Harrison Barnes to cover up the many public complaints made about the company. I couldn't help but notice that yakiknow2 also posted a positive rebuttal to a negative blog about EmploymentCrossing on the same day that he posted the above comment. How is it that the same person is here defending a legal job website but is also defending a general emoployment website on the basis of successfully using both? The more this garbage continues the more exposed you become Harrison Barnes.

I have yet to reserve judgment. I've had good responses thus far. However, they have made mistakes on the resume and cover letter that I've had to correct. My cover letter and resume are currently in production. I will see whether they've made further corrections. I noticed, after submitting my resume and cover letter for production that the second page of my resume is misaligned. Each page should have my bold face name on top of it but I realized now that the second page has a carryover of information from the first page that I did not notice before. I am hoping that the production staff will catch the error and correct it before it is printed and shipped out to me.

I cannot verify yet whether the contacts that LA found for me are legitimate. I will know this once I've received the printed cover letter and resume that is supposed to be shipped to me.

Hi guys... I really wonder with the complaint from Erika Omundson... This compliant is completely unbelievable... I had a good experience with Legal Authority and I got a job through Legal Authority... No t only me but also many of my friends got job through Legal Authority... There is nothing but the good experience with Legal Authority... I can't tolerate Erika Omundson's statement that the Legal Authority provides poorly-researched data... There is no truth in it... There is no chance for poorly-researched data because Legal Authority is not just a job search engine... It is more than that... They are very careful in selecting job listings and the data provided to their customers... If Erika Omundson had some negative experience with Legal Authority then it is definitely not a fault of Legal Authority... It may cause because of careless... unlike many of its competitor's sites, Legal Authority hosts jobs from only employer websites and supports many more jobs than any other site. Legal Authority, quite simply, is the world's largest and best collection of jobs. With a worldwide staff of 600+ employees working around the clock to find virtually every job opening in existence, we employ proven, effective, and results-oriented methods to get you the job of your dreams.
So there is no chance for wrong data……

I selected this site because it stood out in front of me and I clicked on it and I got a job.

There is no truth in Erika Omundson's Complaint... It is completeltly imagination... http://www.LegalAuthority.com is an awesome website if you are looking to find a job, also if you are an employer looking for employees. I personally used this site and found a good job out here in Idaho, and am still working for this same company making $13.75 an hour. THANKS CROSSING!!!

http://www.LegalAuthority.com is a site where you can find the job you are looking for easily. It currently offers more than 50, 000 jobs daily and it also provides many useful tools such as career alerts, my job list, saved searches, and more. The site also features a very strict privacy policy so you can be very confident that all information you give them is stored securely. If you need some help with your job hunting, the site provides you with how-to tutorials on resume writing, interviewing, networking, and salary negotiation. Other career resources include the possibility to ask a career advisor, research an industry, and find salary information. You can start with a quick job search by keyword and then refine your search by choosing a category, industry, location, and city. You can also select FastTrack job titles of interest to you, and have those jobs delivered real-time.

From experience I can say that http://www.LegalAuthority.com works very well. When I joined this service I could navigate its resources easily and managed to get back on my feet in no time. This service is also very good from the employers’ point of view in that it provides an excellent area to find able workers. There is no chance for wrong data...

So don't believe Erika Omundson and check http://www.LegalAuthority.com, find the truth...

I am shock to this compalint abotu a well reputed company like Legal Authority. This is not true according to my experience with the LA authorities in the past. They are having a very good website and it is not all a scam in any manner. It is one of my favorite website and I love surfing this site for the services they provide. I will recommend LA for anyone wants Legal Services they provide. I never had any issues with this website. They always provide very good customer service about the products they sold on the LA website. In my opinion you can trust Legal Authority to greater extent and do business with them without any worries. I visited this LA website for the website through google and find out more about this site through my friends. Even my friends have recommended me for buying products and services from this website as they have very good experience with this LA website. The poster of this complaint is wrong according my experience wit the LA.

From my past experience with this Legal Authority website is that they provide very good services and also provides very good customer services. They have designed the website very user friendly and any new person will not get confused with the services LA provides. So I must say you should not go with the words of Erika and instead you should try Legal Authority once to see their true face. They are professional people in the business and they provide very good services.

Very Good Joke from Erika Omundson...

Actually I used http://www.LegalAuthority.com in my past and I got a legal job easily and quickly.Nothing but good things to say about http://www.LegalAuthority.com. I posted my resume on the site and was contacted immediately. I have an Interview coming up!!! They have enhanced the site so much. If I were you, I would check it out. You have the ability to set up a profile, a web page and so much more. Their formula is very easy and clear. There is 0% chance for miss data and some problem like that...

When you are looking for a part of what you want to do is examine the various ways that you can figure out what you are looking for. When you want to become a process you want to think about the ways in which you are able to get the jobs of your dreams is transforming the careers and lives of thousands of people each week, each day, maybe people you know So let us go to work for you.

http://www.LegalAuthority.com gives you ins and out, places to look and places to avoid. I like to use this site to look for jobs. It has jobs only from employer websites and far more jobs than you will find on other job boards. But do not take my word for it, check out their website for yourself, they helped you to find a job which eventually turned your career.


I selected this site because it stood out in front of me and I clicked on it and I got a job.
what about you...?

You people and your taskmaster are pathetic. All of the coincidentally timed and identical sounding statements sound like nothing moe than an attempt to manipulate someone from expressing a legitimate complaint. If anyone wants to get an idea of the skills of the people who work on resume then take a look at all of the glowing comments written here and elsewhere by people with no familiarity with the english language. Does anyone really want to pay for that type of quality from a company who has to pay its own people to say something positive about the company?

Legal Authority is not a scam, I got job on legal authority.Legal Authority clients have proven thousands of times over that almost all legal hiring organizations hire people who approach them looking for jobs-regardless of whether or not the employer has an advertised position. Our clients also know that not all legal hiring organizations advertise their positions. Because of this, Legal Authority is able to benefit our clients in a way job boards, recruiters and others simply cannot match.
Legal Authority assists attorneys and law students in initiating customized, targeted mailings to groups of legal employers in areas they are interested in working. After a comprehensive market evaluation, our professionals will redo your resume and cover letter and prepare a customized mailing to the hiring contacts inside the legal hiring organizations you are interested in applying to.
The Legal Authority process works. Since starting in the year 2000, we have assisted tens of thousands of attorneys throughout the years. Does our process work for everyone? Of course not. However, in the substantial number of cases if you follow our recommendations you are going to be far better off than if you did not

Dear Friend,

As far as my I have seen Legal Authority is a very great website with excellent track record. I am saying this with my own experience and I have recommended it to many of my friends who all are well satisfied with the services of LegalAuthority. I can't understand why you are so negative about this site. Legal Authority is not a scam and I have got a job through Legal Authority. They do post latest jobs and all the jobs are genuine one. A lot of people are getting benefited by this website that is why it is gaining more and more popularity. I have so many Advocate friends and they keep on searching for more jobs on this great website.
This site also provides latest updates on various topics related to sports activities and other latest updates on various legal issues in the market which definitely is a beneficiary for legal students and job seekers.
Legal Authority not only help you hunt jobs in the country but also provides jobs abroad. There may be some misconception among some people thats why they are abusing this site. But the fact is that this is a freat site for all the people who are seeking legal jobs.
So I will definitely recommend this site to others. I will say that instead of believing on the negative points that some people have posted here you must try this site yourself and you will know how good is this site.
