Dear Ms. Barbara Davis,
I would like to be considered for the litigation associate position that was recently listed by your firm Legal Search Associates, Inc. Attached you will find my resume which highlights my career in more detail.
My education includes both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in law and I have passed the bar exam and am licensed to practice in this state. I have over seven years of experience as a litigation associate where I drafted and prepared pleadings, motions and other litigation documentation. It was also my task to conduct all research while collecting evidence appropriate to litigation cases. This included managing discoveries in complex litigation settings and taking and defending depositions.
I have great communication skills which allows me to argue motions independently and to conduct interviews while gathering materials needed for all cases. It is also possible for me to represent the firm in a courtroom setting with many people as there is no problem with me speaking to a large crowd. This skill is also valuable when coordinating, collaborating and supporting other attorneys in the firm.
My computer skills are above average which allows me to manage client databases and keep them updated in a timely manner. I am highly organized which helps when keeping all filings of litigation documents and processes in their proper places within the main file. With my experience, it is possible for me to ensure compliance of all local, state and federal laws relating to litigation matters.
Please feel free to contact me at any time by calling (555)-555-5555.
