Dear Sir or Madam:

It is my firm belief that my legal professional experiences and practical skills set as a bilingual, paralegal have prepared me for the responsibilities of a Legal Assistant/Paralegal that will only serve to benefit your immigration law firm, further its initiatives, and deliver exceptional client service.

I have served as the sole administrative legal assistant for a Hispanic organization specializing in immigration law in Alexandria, Virginia for over two years. The organization is a fast-paced work environment, where my responsibilities include meeting clients, taking, creating and maintaining client files, preparing client correspondence and related documentation, and case management. I am familiar with litigation procedures, legal terminology, and the importance of maintaining confidentiality regarding client and organizational matters. As a fluently bilingual assistant, I translate documents from Spanish into English for client cases. Due diligence, time management, strong communication skills, meticulous attention to detail, and the ability to manage multiple tasks independently under tight deadlines are attributes that contribute to excelling in my current position and would translate easily to your position.

In addition to my legal experience, I am currently enrolled in the Prince George Community College Pre-Law, degree program. I consistently apply myself to my professional career and legal studies as a detailed, independent, highly motivated, punctual individual, and positive attitude are fundamental characteristics that contribute to my building a good relationship with both clients and management.
