Mr. Steven Berg
Human Resource Manager
12 Court Road
Petersburg, WV 11212
Dear Mr. Berg:
With over 10 years of experience working in a judicial / law setting, I am now well-prepared to work for the court at various levels, by providing insightful clerical and administrative support in different areas.
I am an expert in managing jury information, explaining court procedures, and coordinating court proceedings with lawyers and judges. Perhaps it is my inherent ability to easily and professionally handle the many aspects of court work that makes me a popular choice for assignment to complicated cases, which require high-end administrative support. In addition to providing standard clerical, secretarial and administrative support, I have been highly involved in providing core assistance during courtroom proceedings by recording minutes, calling witnesses, marking evidence exhibits, and swearing in jurors.
My core talents include:
- Preparing and maintaining case records
- Recording and entering minutes of courtroom proceedings, findings, orders, and decisions into the court database.
- Posting payments of fines, and restitution, and preparing court orders.
- Scheduling and following-up referrals to court-related agencies.
If you are in search of an individual who is well-versed in all aspects of administrative, clerical, and logistical court work, you do not need to look further. To build up on the information that I have provided in this letter (and the accompanying resume) I will contact you soon to arrange an interview. Until then, you may reach me at (000) 555-5555.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
