Attention: Law Office Administrator
Please accept this letter and resume in application for the position of Legal Administrative Assistant you posted recently on the Internet.
Although I presently reside in New Jersey, I will be relocating to California in the near future. I am extremely interested in the position you describe and precisely meet your qualification requirements. As I plan to complete my undergraduate education at Los Gatos University and then continue on to pursue a law degree, this position seems like an ideal opportunity to expand my knowledge in the various aspects of a legal practice.
In my current position as a legal secretary for an attorney specializing in personal-injury litigation, I have had extensive experience in organizing workflow and meeting multiple deadlines. I can assess what needs to be done and take appropriate action with minimal direction. Having no prior legal experience, I quickly learned on my own initiative how to open and keep track of a large number of case files varying in complexity. Managing a variety of responsibilities in an environment with deadline pressures is a challenge that I truly enjoy.
I hope you will give me the opportunity to prove my ability to make a significant contribution to your organization. If you are interested in speaking with me further, I will gladly fly to California to interview for this position. Please contact me by leaving a message with Joe or Katy Ventura at (618)-461 1055 . They will also serve as my personal references.
