Dear Mr. Anthony,
I read with great interest the ad for a Court Reporter at the Law Firm of Anthony, Jacobs and Jones, and I am submitting my resume for your review and consideration. I have worked as a court reporter for the Lorain County Juvenile Court System and most recently have freelanced for insurance company depositions and arbitrations as well as for smaller legal firms in the same capacity.
In my current position as a Freelance Court Reporter, I’ve gained experience in various settings and find that I most enjoy working with attorneys and would bring valuable experience to your firm along with a meticulous approach to the job. I understand the confidential nature of the work and the need for absolute accuracy in the word-for-word transcriptions at depositions and administrative hearings.
I am able to remain focused on the proceedings, concentrate for long periods of time, and to ignore distractions. I understand the critical role that an exact record of what was said plays in legal proceedings, and as a result, I strive to make sure my transcriptions are accurate and error-free.
I look forward to bringing my skills to your firm to further enhance your reputation and confidence in your work. Please call me at the number above at your earliest convenience to discuss this opportunity. Thank you for your time and consideration.
