Dear Mr. Jackson:
I want to take the time to express my gratitude for the promotion you have given me. Having the opportunity to work as a partner in your law firm is an opportunity that I am extremely excited to experience. I feel blessed that you took the chance and hired me right out of college and I feel more blessed that you see me as a valuable asset to your firm. Working for XYZ has always been my dream and being a partner puts me at a loss for words.
Over the last few years of working at XYZ, I have had every reason to be happy. I loved my job, even though I was simply an apprentice. I have done all the work with the utmost respect and tried to follow your example. I cannot wait to experience the same while serving beside you in court. I pray that I will continue to represent XYZ with the same professional manner that I have in the past. I have viewed you as my mentor for so long, that I am ready to call you a colleague.
Your willingness to train me and offer me direction when I needed it has been extremely beneficial to me. It has helped me learn where my weaknesses are and strengthen them. I look forward to the challenges that are in front of me, as well as the opportunities to grow in the law field. I know that I will continue to need your guidance and support as new cases come our way, presenting us with precedent cases that will need further investigation and new trial techniques.
I will make sure you never regret this decision and I look forward to the ability to train my own apprentice in the future. I look forward to helping this firm continue to rise to the top and handle more cases with the same prestige as it has always had. I am available anytime you need me. You can reach me on my cell phone at 555-555-5555 and through email at [email] I look forward to receiving the business cards and the nameplate for my desk. Again, I appreciate everything you have done to make me who I am today in the law field. I am only ready for this opportunity because you wanted to take the risk of hiring a new graduate only two years ago.
