Dear Mrs. Holden,
I write today with the intention of applying for your Legal Administrative Assistant position. I have just the right combination of experience, educational background, and skills that you require in your advertisement.
My six years of experience as a Legal Administrative Assistant has taught me a good deal about the law field, and what it is expected in a specialized position such as this one. I have been responsible for a wide variety of tasks and ongoing responsibilities to include: communicating with court officials and clients, conducting legal research, supplying legal documents to third parties, preparing contracts, ensuring organization of digital/paper files, creating office documents in PowerPoint and spreadsheets, typesetting, delivering time sensitive materials, and keeping overall office operations running smoothly. I have done all this and with aplomb-as my supervisors will attest. I know how to work in a fast paced environment, love people, and value confidentiality.
I ask that you consider me for this position today, and then give me a call to set up a time to speak further. I can be contacted at (555)-555-5555 at any time. Thanks so much for your timely response.
