Dear Mr. Johnson —

As an attorney, I believe that part of our practice is to ensure that our clients comprehend the work that we're doing while practicing world-class law. It is about customer experience just as much as it is about legal strategy and working with judges.

That's why as an Associate Attorney I have been able to previously:
Assisted in the research phases of more than 500 cases.
Prepared notes and planned sessions for trials and other legal matters.
Ensured that all attorneys were prepped and ready for legal meetings ahead of time.
Managed all client billings and ensured that hourly bookings was accounted for.

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. If you'd like to see a portfolio of my prior work examples, I would be happy to supply that. In addition, if there are letters of recommendation that you'd like to see which I did not include, please request them and I can supply more than five.
