To Whom It May Concern,
In 2013, I interned in the chambers of Judge James Zagel within the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of Illinois. The following opinion and order disposes of a complex Title VII dispute brought before Judge Zagel.
The full citation for the opinion is Lord v. High Voltage Software, Inc., 09 C 4469, 2013 WL 6009246 (N.D. Ill.
Nov. 13, 2013) and can be accessed on WestLaw by clicking here.
It would be inappropriate to say that I “wrote” the opinion, as it is Judge Zagel who disposes of all cases and
controversies within his courtroom. To be clear, Judge Zagel reads, considers, and ultimately authors all
writings from his chambers.
However, it was my research, analysis, and writing which culminated in this particularly opinion. As such, I
consider it an excellent representation of my legal writing abilities.
During my internship, I worked under the guidance of Judge Zagel’s clerk, Mr. Jordan Wilkow. He has
explicitly approved my use of the opinion as a writing sample and is happy to discuss it with any interested
parties. His contact information is below.
Clerk, Chambers of Jude Zagel
U.S. District Court, N.D. Ill.
219 S Dearborn St.,

Thank you for your time.
