Dear CHRIS KLINTON,

I am presently applying for the position of paralegal at Zen and Zoe Firm. It’s been over two years since I’ve worked under your direction as a legal researcher at Miller Law Office. You have given me extensive training when it comes to legal knowledge, so I believe that you are the best reference to guarantee my skills in legal research. Would you be willing to draft a recommendation letter for me?

I am hoping that you can describe in detail the wide range of topics I researched on while I was at Miller – paternity issues, labor conflicts, land disputes, even patent and trademark issues. In addition to this, the present position I am aiming for requires some skills in writing legal documents. Could you mention my skills in drafting legal papers?

I deeply appreciate your help on this matter, and I believe that your recommendation can be a great help in order for me get the position. I hope I am not such a bother. I’ve included a self-addressed, stamped envelope that you can use in sending the recommendation to Zen and Zoe Firm. Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Lee
