Legal Resume Consultant, Legal Job Search, Sample Attorney Resume, Legal Search Firm - Legal Authority

www.legalauthority.com [cached]

The founder and CEO of Legal Authority, Harrison is known for his contribution to the legal employment market. Harrison and his companies have successfully helped thousands of legal professionals bolster their careers.

Harrison Barnes studied at the University of Chicago, where he was one of the top students in his graduating class. During his undergraduate tenure he even co-taught a college-level class. At the University of Chicago he earned a bachelor's degree in political studies.
Harrison went on to graduate from the University of Virginia Law School. At Virginia he was an editor of the Virginia Law Review and was the managing editor of the Journal of Law and Politics. Harrison has also taught professional responsibility at Whittier Law School.
A passionate believer in community service, Harrison always wanted to help people who were struggling with their careers. When he found Legal Authority in September 2002, he was able to reach out to the remotest employment opportunity in any industry and link it to the best possible employee for that job.
Harrison has designed Legal Authority in such a way that it has the capacity to hold more hiring department contacts than any other in the world-more than 750,000 legal employers. Legal Authority is continuously updated and includes virtually every law firm, corporation, city, county, judge, public interest organization, prosecutor, public defender, law school, association, embassy, representative, congressman, or other organization in the United States that employs legal professionals.
Legal Authority's parent company, EmploymentScape, today has several hundred employees in 14 offices throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe, owing mostly to the clear vision, sharp foresight, and extensive experience of Harrison Barnes. With more than 100 job-search websites comprising EmploymentScape, it is one of the largest career service companies in the world.
A mentor, counselor, motivator, trainer, and writer, Harrison has been featured in the bestselling book by Chet Holmes, The Ultimate Sales Machine.
...
Perhaps it was his early experiences which urged Harrison to help people with their careers. His college days were no different from most other students'-not knowing what he wanted to do with his life.
Harrison had little money in his pocket, and after a couple of unsatisfying attempts at other ventures, he finally decided to start a business building and repairing peoples' driveways and parking lots by the spreading of asphalt sealant.
With help from two employees Harrison would fill up five-gallon pails from barrels on his trailers and walk the sealant over to an area of the asphalt he wanted to repair. He would then spread it around on the asphalt with a squeegee or a large brush. This was an extremely difficult job; the sealant would often get onto his skin and burn him. In removing the sealant, it would take off layers of his skin. Harrison used gasoline and steel wool-like material to remove the sealant. This was awfully painful.
Undeterred by this excruciating process, Harrison continued his venture and helped people (even some who could not pay) in building their driveways. At the end of the day he was satisfied, was appreciated by his clients, and was motivated to move to the next job.
Work Is His Life Blood
Harrison would often work seven days a week. Harrison worked hard and expected his employees to work hard as well. In fact, some of his employees would quit the job from exhaustion after only a few days. There were people who lasted at this, however. Harrison strived to do everything which got him work, and always got another job.
Harrison respected the people he was working for. Incredibly serious about his work, he always loved what he did. His efforts soon paid off; his business prospered and he was in a position to buy better and better equipment for it.
Harrison says, "Having work is a privilege and the most important thing one can have."
It was this belief that fuelled his success at Legal Authority. According to Harrison, work deserves to be cherished and held in the highest possible esteem. Work is something that is your lifeblood; without work, everything stops.
Harrison Barnes, Attorney
After he earned a law degree, Harrison worked as clerk for United States District Judge Robert H. Cleland. He then joined New York City-based law firm of Dewey Ballantine as associate, and also worked for the Los Angeles-based law firm of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver and Hedges.
Harrison worked for a broad range of clients including the US government and several South American governments in a number of cases involving a variety of issues including breach of contract, personal injury, Internet law, trademark infringement, intellectual property, tax, and employment matters.
Harrison's time as a lawyer gave him insight into the legal career of attorneys and proved a great help later in his career when he created Legal Authority and other companies to assist other legal professionals in finding jobs.
Harrison's Theory on Surviving a Job: Increase Efficiency Continuously
Every business targets maximizing profits in a process of continuous improvement with incurring the least possible costs. According to Harrison this means that an employer is always looking for ways to eliminate an employee to reduce the unwanted cost of that employee's wages.
Harrison says, "Every job is a threat to the company and its profits, and companies are always looking for ways to do away with the same."
"So the best way to survive is to increase your efficiency continuously. According to Harrison, you always need to be on the side of efficiency and increasing the output of the company at the lowest possible cost. If you stand in the way of efficiency, you will be seen as an enemy of the company and its growth.
Harrison has applied this belief to his companies, including Legal Authority, which all continuously strive to increase their efficiency by increasing the number of jobs posted on the sites and improving the quality of service.
Harrison's Million-Dollar Idea Gave Birth to Legal Authority
At the time Harrison started an Internet business in 1999, computer programmers were like gods to companies. Demanding bulky six-figure salaries, these guys jumped between companies. Everybody believed that the next in-thing was software and the Internet and thus needed programmers to help set them up. Programmers were in high demand and acted like they could do whatever they wanted.
As a start-up, Harrison's company had to almost beg programmers to work. At times Harrison had to pay programmers as much as $100 an hour to do the work, and to his amazement the programmers would stop working after four or five hours because they thought the work was boring. Appalled by this, Harrison started searching for a solution and soon built an office in India.
...
However, Harrison had already found a large team of programmers at his company in India.
According to Harrison, "If your employers can get your job done more cheaply elsewhere, then they will. The cheaper they can produce a product or service, the more they will sell the same. The more the product or service is sold, the more the company will grow and expand."
This was when Harrison noticed that an increasing number of people were spending their time, energy, and money in searching for jobs in every possible way. He hit upon the million-dollar idea. The best thing his company could do at that time was to help these people find their jobs. Harrison did just that.
Employment Research Institute Comes into Existence
It was the year 2000 when Harrison founded Juriscape (today known as Employment Research Institute), an umbrella company under which he planned to launch all his ventures.
Being an attorney himself, Harrison knew exactly what top attorneys wanted at every stage of their career. He initiated BCG Attorney Search, a company that places the best associates and partners in top-tier law firms.
The great success of BCG Attorney Search catapulted Employment Research Institute to the forefront of the US legal recruitment industry.
Harrison noticed that the dot-com bubble burst had left not only top lawyers searching for jobs but even mid-level and starting attorneys scrambling for survival. He felt the need to assist all legal professionals and not just top lawyers.
...
Through years of research, Harrison has developed a database that lists hiring contacts of 750,000 legal employers.
