11 Robert Baker Breedlove nd Street South Unit F Jacksonville Beach, FL May 22, 2013 Mrs. Andrea Fraser Lee County Attorney ss Office P.O. Box 398 Fort Meyers, FL Dear Mrs. Fraser, My name is Robert Baker Breedlove and it is with great pleasure that I am writing you this letter. Please accept the enclosed resume as my application for the County Attorney position in your office. I am an attorney admitted to the Florida Bar and believe that I can be an excellent addition to your team in St. Johns County as an ASA. I have spent significant time in Lee County and Pine Island throughout my childhood and would love to move there in order to be closer to fiancé s family. I have gained significant experience in both written and oral advocacy, and in legal research through internships with public and private practices. During my time with the Public Defender s office I acquired extensive court room experience and researched and drafted numerous pretrial and appellate motions. In addition, I was able to effectively manage time and prioritize tasks between multiple attorneys with high case loads. Further, my experience as a financial planner has diversified my experience allowing me to work on a plethora of cases ranging from contract law disputes to creating trusts for clients. My long-term goal has always been a career in public policy. I believe the advocacy skills I have learned through multiple internships and through working in the financial services sector will be highly transferrable as a county attorney, advocating for the county s interest in all matters. I am very interested in county Attorney s position with your office and would appreciate the opportunity to further discuss this matter during an interview. I will be in Lee County the week of June 21 or I can interview at your convenience. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Robert Baker Breedlove
