  1. Document advisory and assistant for foreign trade and business
  2. I need some license agreements for buying new required supporting products.
  3. Assistance in copyright/ trademark issues I need to be aware 
  4. Assistance for legal financial and investment advisory that I should know to get started my venture what I do know very little.

I am looking for assistance I could rely on when I need not very frequently but in demanding situations.  I offer you work from your place and connect with my business over the phone or skype (whatever you prefer).

Hence I am requesting you to quote your service charges so that we can communicate for further work schedule.

Looking forward to your reply and please inform me if you’d rather talk over voice or meet in person, my schedule is quite flexible.

Lawyer Services Request Letter

Respected staff,

My name is Quinto Chevalier, and I am writing this letter to bring to your kind notice that I filed a case against my neighbor regarding property endorsement through your firm later on, I found a change in lawyer appointment for my case discussion and management.

I filed a complaint in your firm that I am not satisfied with the appointment of the newly appointed lawyer’s performance for my case. I reported this complaint about three-time, but unfortunately, no required action was taken by the firm.

This is completely unexpected and never happened in the past as I m an old client of your legal firm. 

Now I am at the end of my hearing, and I have already submitted a full fee to your firm in advance under the tag of 53241.

It is sad but I want to have a full refund of my fees deposited as I am not satisfied with the newly appointed lawyer and the response of your firm. I hope you consider my letter seriously and process my fees refund within 2 working days.

I hope to hear a positive response from your firm regarding my reported issue.

Thank you

Case number: 12AB14

Lawyer Services Request Letter

Respected Mam,

It is a matter of great concern for me that while I was away from Seattle for 2 years, my ex-husband has got the authority over the house that I bought 3 years ago, and it was in my name.

I certainly feel that he opted for some illegal route for doing this, and hence I am in dire need of a lawyer to file a case in court and get my property back. 

I and my husband divorced after 7 years of our marriage due to his cheating habits, and then to take a break from life, I shifted to a new city so that I could get a hold of my life. 

Kindly accept my request and become my lawyer so that I can start the court proceedings against him as soon as possible.
