Dear Monica Gains,

Peabody Smith & Cleverly is a great law firm, which has helped me get started in the legal field. I thank all the partners for the opportunity to show what I can do. But I would like to move on and this is my formal resignation letter. I will be leaving in three weeks.

Just as all of the partners started small and grew to be more powerful, I would also like the opportunity to start my own law firm. I think I have the talents and the clients to make a big splash. There are a couple of legal areas where I think I could gain some traction and leaving Peabody will enable me to gain more expertise in these areas.

I have a couple of cases that should wrap up in the next week or so. I would help any of the other attorneys review my files and casework. I know that Peabody will continue to be one of the best law firms in town. Thanks again, give me a call if you need anything: 444-111-7790 or ([email protected]).

Many Thanks,

Stephen Baldwin”

Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Manager’s Name],

Thank you for the opportunity to apply for the legal assistant role at your firm. I was excited when I stumbled upon your job posting on [Website]. It’s clear that you seek a candidate that is familiar with case management software, case preparation, and trial proceedings. Given these prerequisites, I am confident that I have the necessary skills to successfully fulfill the legal assistant opening.

I am grateful for the time that I spent at Bohemor & Associates. In 2014, I was first hired on as an administrative assistant and was in charge of all the clerical duties in the office. Over time, the partners at the firm helped me transition over to a paralegal role. I was taught how to properly draft litigation documents such as complaints, deposition notices, interrogatories, and subpoenas.

As a paralegal, I also acted as the point of contact for most of our clients and conducted all witness interviews. Bohemor & Associates trusted me to communicate with clients and witnesses due to my strict adherence to professionalism and confidentiality.

After reviewing my resume, I hope you will agree that I am the candidate that you have been looking for. I look forward to elaborating on how my specific skills and abilities will benefit your organization. Please contact my phone or via email to arrange a convenient time for us to meet.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]”
