An attorney recommendation letter should be extremely formal and informative. It is important to spend a great deal of time pointing out the candidate’s positive attributes and their qualifications.
I am writing you this letter to recommend Patricia Ashley for the position of attorney within your firm. As managing partner of my own firm, I had the pleasure of working with Patricia for six years. When Patricia had to move back to her hometown to care for her sick mother, I was devastated to let her go, but I respected her dedication to her family. Now that her mother is at rest, I am glad to hear that Patricia is getting back into the legal industry.
Patricia has an exceptionally strong eye for detail that has been a benefit to our firm on more than one occasion. She also has a very calm demeanor that was a blessing for clients in and out of the courtroom. Patricia’s strong sense of organization helped her to always gain the upper-hand in court and win a large majority of her cases.
While I would prefer that Patricia come back to our firm, I understand her desire to work closer to her family. Patricia is an extremely talented attorney who cares a great deal about her clients and her firm. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information about Patricia and her abilities.
