Dear Mr. Potter:
Being a recent law graduate from Missouri Law University, I am interested in working as a paralegal at Precision for Value, a law firm that I hold in high esteem, owing to its popularity for fair law practices. A recent internship at Cooper and Cooper has made me well-aware of the work carried out in an attorney’s office.
Some of my qualifications include:
• Effectively able to conduct comprehensive analysis of cases of complex and technical nature, focusing on both facts and figures.
• Highly skilled in investigating facts of cases, identifying legal issues and interviewing potential witnesses, both in person and on the telephone.
• Qualified to prepare for and participate in mediation and trials, and recommending strategic options to trial teams during case development activities.
With strong interpersonal skills, an analytic mind and a great ability to adjust to changing priorities, I am confident of my ability to be a contributory factor once hired at Precision for Value. As an ambitious team player who learns quickly and exercises good judgement, I am positive that you will not regret meeting with me. I can make myself available for an interview at your earliest convenience and can be contacted at (000) 744-1021.
