Dear Mr. Hiccup —

As a Legal Secretary I see myself as a team player who can assist in all aspects of the law firm. From answering phones to scheduling. And from filing motions to ensuring that all contracts are signed by our customers. This is how I see myself being a tremendous value to your firm. Where I can assist in all the administrative tasks that distract you from being able to provide incredible service to our customers. Here is what I've been able to accomplish:

Assisted in all administrative tasks related to more than 18 litigations.
Worked closely with all lawyers to ensure their scheduling was accurate.
Ensured that all contracts were signed by our clients and that motions were properly filed with their appropriate state and county offices.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
