Dear Mr. Reynolds:
Working my way through law college is full of challenges, and I love every moment of dealing with them – and coming out shining. I am presently in search of a position for as a court runner with a practice that is clear, professional and a market leader. And this translates into Attorneys’ Place. I am interested in working for you and can assure you that you will not be disappointed with my skills.
As part of my degree, I have worked as a legal intern at One Legal LLC for three months during the summer of 2014. This was an insightful experience and provided me with great discernment regarding the workings of a legal office, particularly the research and documents transportation part. This experience will be of great use to you if I am hired as a court runner, as I believe that you will save precious time in training me.
While I await my exam results, I would like to be inducted immediately, and possibly make my way up to a legal assistant eventually. I am motivated and would like to give you the benefit of this motivation. I will be in touch with you regarding a meeting soon and can be reached at (000) 514-1111.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
