Legal Assistant

Dear Mr. Johnson —

The legal assistant role is one I respect dearly. Having the ability to help our attorneys focus on their work is something I cherish as well as understand helps the business. Paperwork, client matters, filing complaints, and other administrative tasks can drag down the productivity of our attorneys. Here are some of the things I've been able to do as a previous Legal Assistant:

Assisted in more than 200 legal cases.
Produced research and filed legal complaints for our attorneys through more than 50 cases.
Made significant headway in both real-estate dealings and corporate dealings in Q3 of 2014.

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.
