Ms. Tina Glenn

Director of Human Resources

Fort Worth, Texas 76196

Dear Ms. Tina Glenn,

I am a recent graduate from Texas A&M School of Law and I am writing to apply for the position of Post-Conviction Attorney with the Criminal District Attorney’s Office. I learned about the position from the Tarrant County website. Although I only recently graduated and licensed with the state of Texas, I am confident I can be a valuable asset to the Criminal District Attorney Office.

Prior to studying law at Texas A&M, I studied English and Pre-Law at Texas Wesleyan. I am also a United States Air Force veteran and have 17 years of military law enforcement experience, eleven years of which I served at the management level. My combination of post-secondary and graduate education combined with my Department of Defense experience has provided me with the required competencies and an extensive knowledge of the criminal and government decision-making process, departments, and administration.

My last five years in the military, I held the position of Command Investigator for the Commanding Officer Captain Robert A. Bennett of Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base, TX. As a Command Investigator, I provided assistance in all law enforcement matters in sexual assault and family violence cases for the installation Family Advocacy Program. I have the ability to recommend appropriate organizations and networks to respond to the victims’ needs during initial law enforcement responses and on-going investigations. I was also selected to serve as the 136th Air Wing’s law enforcement representative on the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Case Review Committee.

I support the needs of our victims throughout the Fort Worth community.  I annually attend the Crimes Against Women Conferences and Crimes Against Children Conferences in Dallas.

It is my hope that my background provides the skills that you desire for the appointment to attorney position. If you so desire, I look forward to the opportunity to discuss in greater detail how my experience would benefit the City of Fort Worth. I can be contacted at 817-944-3469 or In the interim, thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely yours,


Rachel Keith
