"Moritz Legal Proofing is the only course we recommend!"
Kevin Ruhl, Owner -
Metroproof, Inc.

"The only course we recommend is Moritz Legal Proofing -- your results are superb."
Barbara Judd, President; Jeffrey Middleman, Vice President - Staff One

"I wanted to let you know I have a great job that is temp to perm at a firm that does legal graphics. It seems like it's a great company to work for and I'm hoping that I will make a good fit. I just wanted to thank you. I could not have gotten such a great job without your course!"

Charlotte Parrish 

"I took your class about 6 weeks ago. I've been working 3rd shift at Clifford Chance for the past 4 weeks. The placement was through New York Legal temps, and they're paying me $20/hour. Thanks to your class I passed the tests easily and felt comfortable my first day on the job. I'm one month into my first assignment, and can honestly say that your class was my ticket into a decent job. My bank balance is grateful and so am I."
