Paralegal Cover Letter Example 1

Hello, Mr./Ms. (Last name),

First of all, thank you for your consideration of my paralegal application and this Paralegal cover letter. I am enclosing my resume and some information about the specific type of work that I have done previous to this application, which is why I believe I would be a good candidate for your esteemed company.

First of all, congratulations on being selected for this position. As you can see from my enclosed resume, I have been working as a paralegal for the past five years and have been able to gain valuable experience in all areas of law. One area that I am very passionate about is business law, specifically contract negotiation and drafting. Additionally, I worked closely with a bankruptcy lawyer at a private firm where we drafted various types of documents including, but not limited to: pre-trial memoranda, complaints and answers, motions, statements, and legal briefs. I was also responsible for proofreading and editing these documents, checking them against court rules, and formatting them according to the judges’ preferences.

I am very passionate about this type of law because businesses need all the help they can get in a struggling economy. I am very familiar with business law and believe I would be a great candidate for the position as your company merges into this branch of law.

I understand that many qualified candidates are applying for this type of work, so I wanted to highlight my specific skill set and my passion for business law and contract negotiation. I can fulfill the primary responsibilities as a paralegal and expand on them as this branch of law takes off.

I hope you will consider me for your next position and honestly believe that my skills, experience, and passion qualify me as one of the most qualified candidates. Thank you again for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon!

I am available for any questions or follow-up information that you may need at (555)-555-5555.

Sincerely,

John Doe
