Motivation letter for a Lawyer Sample

Name of the Law firm







Dear Mr. [Surname]:

As an experienced personal injury attorney admitted member of Paris Bar, I am writing to apply to the mid-level Commercial Litigation Associate at Gerard & Partners Law Firm. I learned of this position through an associate in Bar, who has recommended me to apply for this opening in your Firm, as he believes I have sufficient professional expertise for this post.

Since graduating from law school in 2011, I have worked as an associate with the law firm Brielle’s Legal, where I represented healthcare providers and hospitals in regard to medical malpractice and insurance defense litigation. During my tenure with this firm I have managed over fifty injury cases, including writing pleadings and memoranda, conducting settlement negotiations, taking and defending depositions and of course representing clients in the Court. I am very grateful for having the opportunity to work for this firm, because during my work I have significantly improved my legal research and writing skills, enhanced my skills in speaking in public, and of course got better understanding of personal injury litigation. In a case you accept my application, and I become an associate in your firm, I would be glad to bring these skills to your low firm.

I have heard that Gerard & Partners Law Firm is expanding business base in healthcare area, and having in mind your reputation I am pretty confident that you are about to become an industry leader in regard to proactive compliance strategies. I hope that my skills and experience could be an valuable asset to your firm during this process and therefore I be a special added value of your team in reaching this mission.

Apart from a above mentioned professional experience,  I would like to bring to your attention that I have excellent academic credentials and superb written and oral communication skills. I am a team player and therefore I would appreciate the opportunity to work closely with experienced practitioners on a national and European level.

Enclosed is a detailed CV that highlights my experience and education. In addition I am sending you a Law school transcript and a brief writing sample.

I would honor to have the opportunity to discuss my interests and qualifications in person. Thank you in advance for your time.
