Dear Tom Kinston,
I am in receipt of your letter of January 10, 2013. Although I am
honored by the privilege, I respectfully request that I be excused from
the jury duty.
I am currently employed by XYZ International Inc. As a small firm, my
employer will be unable to pay me during my absence for jury duty.
Simply stated, my financial position will be severely affected as a result.
I will be able to forward a statement from my employer if you so
I trust that you understand my position and excuse me, thus, from jury
duty. You may contact me at 12345678 if there are any concerns.
