Want to use this letter?

The recommendation letter is a hugely valuable component of any job application, and yet people commonly either overlook it, or struggle to get a letter that’s high quality enough. Perhaps the best practice when coming up with a paralegal recommendation letter is trying to anticipate the expectations of the employer and mirror them in the content of the letter.

Felicity Weeks,

I am writing this letter to recommend Shane Montell for the position of paralegal at your law firm. Shane worked as a paralegal at my firm for nearly five years, and was one of the most valuable elements of our team. His research, dedication, and organizational skills were critical in allowing my firm to grow and maintain success, and I’m confident he will have the same effect at your firm as well.

Shane handled general paralegal duties including conducting case research, preparing litigation documents, processing and organizing legal documentation, taking notes and managing court filings. He had the biggest workload of any paralegal on our team, yet he was always able to handle it with remarkable efficiency and professionalism.

Shane balanced his organizational skills and documentation abilities with an intricate knowledge of court workings and a meticulous eye for document reviews. He was tremendously helpful in several cases, and I can honestly say without him we wouldn’t have had the same success. His abilities and diligence make him come very highly recommended.
