It may seem as if writing a quality resignation letter is frivolous or a formality for an attorney, when one can simply have a face-to-face conversation with the law firm administrator or supervisor to provide notification of resignation. However, in providing this simple written letter at the time of resignation, a good attorney is ensuring that he or she solidifies the current working relationship as a positive one in the memory of all concerned. People who submit an attorney resignation letter are more likely to receive positive references and referrals than those who do not. When writing your resignation letter, include the final expected date of employment so the company or firm may find a suitable replacement or make other arrangements.
