How Appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court Work

Appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court mainly go there through either the state or federal court system. In the state court system, you start at the trial court, appeal first to the state court of appeals, then to the state supreme court and finally to the U.S. Supreme Court. In the federal court system, the trial is conducted in the U.S. District Court, appealed to the Circuit Court of Appeals and finally to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The U.S. Supreme Court does not take all cases; in fact it only hears about 200 appeals per year out of thousands that are submitted to it. Our first hurdle is to get the court's agreement to hear the case. For this we draft a petition, called a writ of certiorari, presenting the facts of the case and an argument why the court should hear the case. Once the court agrees to hear the case, we prepare and file briefs and finally go to Washington, D.C. to present oral arguments to the court. The members of the court then confer about their decision and a justice is chosen to write the opinion for the court. Do not trust your future to anything less than an accomplished appellate attorney. Contact us now for your appeal.
