Witness Statement Letter

The witness statement letter is composed in order to provide a brief summary of the witness account. This can be for both civil and criminal cases. It is essential to understand the requirements of the case before writing such a letter. Some cases require the witness to write an extensive and detailed witness account while other cases prefer brevity and an affirmation or negation of the case concerned. The witness statement letter should be written under the guidance of an attorney.

Sample Witness Statement Letter:

3rd May, 2011


The Judge,

Los Angeles State Court

Los Angeles- 344178

Respected Sir,

I, Carlos Montague, hereby declare that I bear an eyewitness to the transference of ownership of Mr. Kevin Smith’s estate at Marine Lodge to Mr. Ryan Fielding on 7th April, 2011.

I am an acquaintance of both Mr. Fielding and Mr. Smith and hence, I will be an appropriate witness to the transfer of ownership of the concerned estate. This property was bought on 1st April, 2011 and the transaction was completed within two days of the purchase.

The property is in perfect condition and had been under renovation recently. The location is within the suburbs and the neighborhood has the lowest crime activity recorded in the past two years. This was an inherited property from Mr. Kevin Smith’s grandfather. I am aware that I am liable under the court of law if I produce any kind of misleading or false information. All witness account is true and relevant to the subject matter at hand.

Yours faithfully,

Carlos Montague
