The Young Lawyer Chronicles – Perspectives.

June 6, 2012

Jim Client
123 High Street
Philadelphia, PA

Re: I am Your Lawyer in Case 1234β€’2012, Next Court Date 4/20

Dear Client:

I have been appointed by the court to represent you in this matter. I have enclosed my business card with this letter. Please contact me as soon as you receive this letter. It is important that we meet before your court date to prepare your defense. I look forward you meeting you and serving as your attorney.

Very Truly Yours,

Leo M. Mulvihill, Jr.
