PROS. JESSE REY M. SILVOSA


Office of the Provincial Prosecutor Surigao del Norte
Hall of Justice, Provincial Capitol
Surigao City, Surigao del Norte 8400

Sir,

I am writing to express my interest in the position of Associate Prosecution Attorney


in the province of Surigao del Norte. I have always had a strong interest in both the
law and public service. Based on my understanding of your office and on my
conversations with other public servants, I am convinced that the position I am
applying for will afford me with sufficient opportunity to practice my chosen
profession, serve the public, and achieve a greater sense of purpose.

I have gained significant experience in legal writing and research during my 6-


month stint as a legal assistant, working online with a US-based marketing firm.
During the same period, I also worked as freelance writer and authored several legal
articles regarding US intellectual property, real estate and tax laws, Canadian tort
and personal injury laws, as well as Philippine labor law. Lastly, Ive also had the
privilege to teach and mold young minds by working as a political science professor
in St. Paul University Surigao.

I thrive on legal work that requires significant responsibility and accountability, not
only to the organization but also to the public. I was impressed by the fact that the
prosecutors Ive spoken to were not focused solely on obtaining the harshest
punishment for the defendants that they prosecuted. Instead, they were more
worried about achieving the ends of justice. Should I be fortunate enough to join
your office, I wholeheartedly intend to embody the same ideals and ethical
principles.

A career with the Department of Justice, specifically the Office of the Provincial
Prosecutor, would be a natural outcome of my longstanding interest in public
service and my academic concentration on criminal law, civil law, remedial law, and
trial practice.

Please refer to the attached Curriculum Vitae for more details on my background
and what I have to offer. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely yours,

ATTY. JASON OLIVER C. SUN, J.D.
