Legal Resume Revision & Writing Service 

 Attorney resumes, Paralegal resumes, Law student resumes

A strong resume and cover letter are critical to getting job interviews, but much of the advice online (and by resume writing companies) isn’t targeted to legal resumes. As an experienced lawyer with years of hiring and interviewing experience, I have reviewed hundreds of legal resumes for lawyers, law students, and paralegals and written dozens of legal resumes. As a certified professional resume writer (CPRW) and active member of the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches, I stay on top of trends in resume writing and design, and I know what stands out and what blends in.

I have distilled that knowledge down into a helpful Legal Resume Templates & Tips package designed to help you create professional, impactful documents designed to support you in building the legal career of your dreams. 


 Here’s what it includes:

1. A video lesson explaining what to include in your resume and why, including how to draft a resume designed to make it through Applicant Tracking Systems (“ATS”).

2. Sample resume templates, ready for you to download in Microsoft Word and edit to your heart’s content. These are similar formats and styles to the ones I have used to help my clients go after their dream jobs. 

3. My best tips for cover letters, including when to write one, and several examples to inspire your own. 

4. Common skills and competencies to consider including, based on my review of hundreds of legal resumes and job postings.

5. FREE access to Networking for Job Seekers, my online course designed to help you use networking to find a job. If you’re not using networking as a tool in your get-a-job toolkit, you are missing out!

6. $250+ worth of discounts to my other courses and services, including my Resume Mark-Up Service (see below).

How to Buy:

The information and services in Legal Resume Template & Tricks are worth over $500, and most resume companies charge hundreds of dollars for a new or revised resume, especially those targeted to lawyers. I want to help as many lawyers and legal professionals as possible, so I’m charging just $10 for this package. Learn more and purchase the Legal Resume Template & Tricks package here.
