Lawyer Resume Sample

Lawyer Resume Sample for a Lobbyist & Government Affairs Professional

Not every licensed lawyer goes into traditional law practice. Many pursue very different careers that draw on their legal background. This lawyer resume sample was written for a job seeker with a Juris Doctor degree who pursued a career as a lobbyist, policy advisor, and government affairs in relations

Notice that as with all the resumes we write at Distinctive Career Services, this lawyer resume sample is similar in that it follows many of the same basic principles.  The headline and subheading of the resume immediately convey the focus of this resume: a government relations position, and the subheading lets you know exactly how this candidate is differentiated: he has had extensive, proven success as a lobbyist working across partisan lines and ideological divides.

The body of the resume tells the “story” of each position, engaging the reader through a compelling description of the challenges faced, actions taken, and results produced. While we have used very traditional design elements in this lawyer resume sample, it has been updated by the very selective use of color and some simple but sophisticated elements, such as strategic bolding, bullets, ruling lines, and a page border.

Please keep in mind that this sample resume for a lawyer is just an example to show the quality and style of our professional resume writing services.

Sharon did an outstanding job. I was very impressed by the high quality of her work and her attention to my project. I will certainly recommend your services to others. Thank you.

I have spent hours on the final draft that you sent, I also showed it to a dear friend and mentor who has seen 100X more resumes than I and hired and fired more high level execs than I will ever know, she was quite impressed!

...Although we have never met you and I are the team that will insure that my family is taken care of. All of this to say that I am extremely pleased with the final product! I have been too close to see how truly efficient and functional the document is. You fit a tremendous amount of "stuff" in a pretty concise package. The biggest problem with writing your own resume is objectivity, when to include something and when to leave it out, it should be easy (if I'm as good as the resume makes me sound), but it is very difficult. I learned a long time ago that all business is basically the same, but as humans we think that just because we are unique, our situations are unique and no one else can understand what we do, have done and/or need in business. You delivered a product that proves that you too have that understanding but more importantly know how to make us feel and look as unique as we are. The resume is outstanding, type style, layout, conciseness and its packed with good quality writing. I am very pleased. Our exchanges have been lively, thought provoking and insightful, I'm glad you are my side! Again thanks for everything, you will get referrals, and if its okay I will keep you posted on my success.

I can’t believe how many people called me this morning non-stop...Thanks a million, and your way is very effective. I got a lot of people interested in my background and my experience. You are the best!

I believe the resume Lisa wrote for me is absolutely great. She took all the information I put into the questionnaire and put it into exactly what I was looking. The only test now is, is to see how hiring managers receive it. I would recommend the services simply because I did my own research to find out what the market was looking for in terms of writing resumes and everything I saw was exactly what I got and then some.
