Dear [Salutation],

I am writing in response to your advertisement in the Florida Times Union for a Paralegal position. I am an experienced, Certified Paralegal with extensive knowledge of legal terminology, case progress from discovery until trial, and able to build rapport with coworkers and clients. I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Criminology from Jacksonville University in 2001 and my Paralegal Certification in 2003.

My current position with XXX Law Associates requires in-depth research, preparation of case materials, and assisting six attorneys on broad topics. I have increased accuracy in research development by 2.7% since my hire in September 2003 as a Legal Assistant. Attorneys depend on my input and research skills to analyze client cases relative to open cases.

For further evidence of my qualifications for this position, please review the enclosed resume and references. I would like to request an appointment to discuss this opportunity in detail.

Please call 000-000-0000 or 000-000-0000 if you require more details for my consideration for this position.
