You have the same background as mine.  Well, if the lawfirms know who they are looking for, your resume and the list of publications would be more than enough to give a compelling impression that you are a good technical writer.

You may want to try Ropes and Gray in Boston/New York.  If you've already passed the patent bar, try darby and darby in New york.  As for the resume and cover letter, keep them short and "on-point."  Firms care mostly about your technical background and writing skills.  So if you have publications, list them.  For a first contact, I believe a resume and well-crafted cover letter (stating that you're willing to provide additional info including transcript and writing samples) should be sufficient.  Once you get a call back, they'll let you know if a writing sample is needed.  Of course, if you know the exact requirements regarding writing sample, you may send it along.

"When he applied to my firm, his application got pretty much thrown away in the garbage without the senior partner in our group even looking at it."
 
If you were truly his friend, you would have helped him with his application and/or made sure the senior partner saw it.  You could have put in a good word for him as well.  Sounds like somebody felt threatened by their own "friend."

Excuse me?  Obviously from everything I wrote in my other posts I'm as helpful as I can be even to complete strangers, and I don't need some shmuck like you slandering me as such.  I advised him to change his cv/coverletter but he chose to ignore me because some other firm got a kick out of it.  Now go away.
