Dear Ms. Pyle,
I am a highly trained barrister with a background in business law, and I am excited by the opportunity to work for Pyle & Martin Law Firm. I have a history of working on discrimination suits, and I know I could step in and make an immediate impact on your firm. My objective as a barrister is to ensure fair and equitable employment practises, and my expertise aligns with the qualifications needed for the position.
A desire to help less fortunate victims of employer discrimination has led me to volunteer with Legal Aid of London on a continuous basis for more than a year. Whilst my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate mediation and leadership skills, I excel in the following areas:
Obtaining favourable legal verdicts in the majority of cases.
Negotiating settlements to avoid jury trials.
Arguing cases in local and federal courts.
Championing victims of employer discrimination and retaliatory practises.
In the course of my career I have worked for both plaintiffs and defendants in employer discrimination lawsuits. Additionally, I have a professional demeanour and have argued numerous cases as lead counsel in County Court, with a major victory for Dylon Manufacturing in 2009. I am extremely enthusiastic about Pyle & Martin’s focus on pursuing employee discrimination cases and would love the opportunity to contribute to your success in this area.
My CV details my additional work experience. I appreciate your time and will follow up to request an appointment to discuss how my experience and background meets your needs.
