Good hello Patrick and ye all,
Now don't get upset, but Patrick, I thought your template was way too long and wordy, so I have edited it down to a far snappier version whilst still getting across the essentials. It is set up for my own agency in respect of a list of areas of law, which others, you might want to chop and change and add to...
And I have tried a zillion times to attach, so [auto mod] it, I shall copy and paste... here it is.... (AGENCY NAME/LOGO etc)
“Legal Aid” under threat
A Government consultation proposes that in 2012 Legal Aid funding for many legal problems will be scrapped. Problems withWelfare Benefits (e.g. Income Support, JSA, Housing Benefit and the whole range of disability benefits) will no longer be eligible for Legal Aid. In addition, most debt issues will also be ruled out. These are just a couple of the wider Legal Aid cuts proposed in other areas of law, such as Housing, Employment and some Family law.
If the plans are implemented as they stand, most if not all of (AGENCY NAME)’s Specialist legal aid funded work will have to stop entirely, which could put the whole of (AGENCY NAME) at risk of closure.
You can find out more and have your say on the proposals.
myLegal is a new and independent free online forum to help raise awareness of the Government proposals and give you a chance to say how the advice you got helped you. Even just registering will help. Got Internet access? All it takes is a minute to register and get involved at:

As I said, if anyone wants to share their versions, then by all means do. The important thing is that people get on and do something
The attachments are working fine. It could be your internet connection or the ilegal cyberspace sphere and we may need to get the sonic screwdriver out - when you post an attachment and then click 'post reply' you may have to wait a short while until the attachment is picked up by the server
Try, try again
[ILEGAL EDIT: tweaked a few things - should be OK now, reply and let us know if it isn't]

Okay, this is an attept to attach the document I mentioned, so you can see it with my own formatting. Actually, if it works, it will also show you that y'all can attach and share your own versions, other letters/pro-formas etc.

I like the heading, it grabs the attention etc, I'll probably add a bit to encourage clients to tell their story on Mylegal. Remember that most of these letters can be linked to Casetrack and other client databases to enable you to do a mail merge shot so you can select clients past & present.
