Additionally, I posses the ability to coordinate work between courts, clients, witnesses and victims in a manner that best follows basic legal protocols.

My resume is enclosed with this letter and contains all the information you will need in order to make a decision to interview me. I will call your secretary next week to set up an interview time and can be reached at (000) 145-7878.
