Dear Mr Smith

Please regard this letter as my formal application for your vacancy of legal secretary.

I feel well suited to this role having acquired over four years secretarial experience working for various well known law firms. As can be seen in my attached CV, I have extensive knowledge of current legal practices and terminology as well as experience of providing efficient administrative and secretarial support to lawyers and legal executives.

Whilst working in my current role I have developed the necessary communication skills required to liaise effectively with the courts, local authorities, solicitors and the police. I possess excellent organizational and time management skills and also fully understand the need for accuracy and complete confidentiality when handling legal documents for submission to clients or opposing counsel.

I would like to thank you for considering my application and hope to hear from you at your earliest.

Yours sincerely,


Mary Stevens
