cover letter question

Postby soda mayor » Tue Dec 28, 2010 5:01 pm

in a cover letter to the DA, is it stupid to mention that my brother is a police officer and that, listening to his awful stories of criminals blah blah blah i feel obligated to use my skills as a lawyer to protect the community from these same criminals?

No more than 2 lines about it, dont make this the center of your letter.

I agree. You can say he's a PO and how you respect him and what he does, but you want to uphold the same values on the other side of the system. One doesn't work without the other, blah blah blah
