Legal Letters

By | April 12, 2010

Legal letters are very important part of one’s life and require special attention. But these letters are not as difficult to write as most people think so. In fact even if you are not a lawyer you can at least prepare a rough draft of any legal letter by being precise, to the point and formal and lucid in tone.

There are various types of legal letters and the content and tone of these letters differ depending upon the purpose of the letter, the addressee of the letter and on many other aspects. But no matter what the content may be, the most important aspect of writing a legal letter is to be lucid, clear and to the point   with carefully chosen words which are appropriate to the content. Also never use slang words and unnecessary words in your legal letter which may render it a less serious and even frivolous tone.

Respected Sir,

It has been a long time since I have had communication from your office regarding my case that is pending there. I would highly appreciate being provided with a brief update on the status of my case as this will relieve me of much worries and I would be able to decide my next legal course of action. I also thank your honour and the office for your continuing assistance in this matter. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanking you in anticipation,
