Law Office Manager
Winning Justice Law Office
Sacramento, CA 86747

Dear Mr. Lingad,

I am very interested in the Attorney position posted on Monster.com. Having graduated from University of Southern California’s Gould School of Law, I believe I have the appropriate preparation and training for the responsibilities that this job entails. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

During my last year at USC, I was head of the Speech and Debate Honors Society. In that same year, I was fortunate enough to receive the Finalist Award. With having held such a position, I was able to develop my leadership skills as well as my organizational abilities. (As always, but most especially when applying for the position of an Attorney, you need convince the reader that you are the best candidate for this job. Highlight your notable positions as well as the strong skills you gained from it.)

In addition to my experience on the team, I also partook in USC Law’s Small Business Clinic. My role was to assist small businesses in Los Angeles and the campus community in executing legal defenses and guide them through various legal requirements. I gained excellent communication and analytical skills, the ability to reason, and the tolerance for working long days. (Mention positions that consisted of responsibilities that align with those of an Attorney. Make sure to emphasize that you do have the appropriate experience and qualifications for this job.)

I believe I am an appropriate candidate given my experience as well as my passion to achieve justice in all cases. I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at jhathaway@fightforyou.com. (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. My résumé is attached. I look forward to scheduling an interview where we can talk more about my qualifications. (Express gratitude for their time.)

Sincerely,

Justin Hathaway
