Petition for Writ of Certiorari
A Petition for Writ of Certiorari is the first step in seeking review from the United
States Supreme Court. By the same token a Brief in Opposition is a respondent's
opportunity to preserve a lower court victory and end the long road of litigation.
The process itself – the Court's unusual format, in fact, most of the Court's Rules – can seem arcane and difficult. Documents submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court look different from those submitted to any other court and the Rules can be unforgiving.
Legal Printers LLC can help you navigate this road from the initial preparation to the final draft and then the printing, filing and service of your Brief. You can concentrate on researching and writing the best possible argument while leaving the formatting and technical details to us.
What happens if you submit a document that does not comply with the Rules? While not all violations are fatal, submitting a document that does not comply runs the very real risk that the Court will return your briefs with a letter saying they were rejected. When that occurs the Court may provide the opportunity to re-file but you will have to go through the cost, delay and embarrassment of reprinting which is why we want to help you get it right the first time.
In almost 30 years of filing U.S. Supreme Court Briefs, we have never had a brief rejected for form. Legal Printers LLC will:
- Cut through the scores of pages of Supreme Court Rules to find those that apply to your Brief.
- Help with the complicated work of reformatting lower court opinions for your Cert. Petition Appendix.
- Prepare and excecute the required Affidavit of Service and Certificate of Word Count Compliance.
- Print and file your Brief - in person at the Court - on the next business day after you clear it to print, even same-day if necessary.
- Receive a time - and date - stamped confirmation copy from the Court immediately.
- Serve opposing counsel with hard copies and electronically.
