Mr. Roland Brand
Hiring Manager
Big Town Legal Services
800 Attorney Highway
Big Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Brand:

JobSearchJimmy.com listed a position for an office job in legal services at your firm. I was attracted to this post because I've been looking for such a position after having spent summers during high school and junior college working for my uncle, an attorney in Any Town. For more details about that experience, please see my attached resume.

My ultimate goal is to become a lawyer, focusing on domestic violence, so I'd like to continue working in the legal field while I complete my education and sit for the Bar exam.

I am particularly skilled at editing briefs, filing documents with county offices in a timely manner, and managing attorney calendars. So if you have a need for any or all of these skills and services, I hope you'll agree that I'm a person to consider.

If you are available, may we meet in person to talk over what you are looking for in the person you hire and how I can become that individual? Please call me at my home phone or cell during the workday from 9:00 to 5:00. My contact information is above. I hope to hear from you soon and thank you ahead of time for reading this cover letter and my resume.
Sincerely,

John Job Searcher

A Timely Tip: Customize your cover letter but be sure the essential elements are included, namely your past experience related to the job you want to land, and then communicate, as well, your enthusiasm for legal work so the hiring manager will see you as a committed individual that will be an asset to his company or firm.
