Consultative Approach

At the FederalCourt.Press, we really enjoy talking about your case! If you have brought a case this far, through multiple levels of lower courts and intend to bring it to the highest court in the country, it is virtually assured that the case is interesting and important. Although we are not a law firm, and do not act as your attorneys, you might be surprised at the depth and breadth of knowledge that exists within this firm.

Throughout your filing process, you are free to consult with us about any question or concern that you might have. Our editorial team can provide you the outsider’s perspective on your case, and provide quick answers to cut through bedeviling problems.

Here are some of the types of questions that we receive, which range from the mundane to the technical.

Typical Questions Our Clients Consult with Us About
Planning Questions
 
  • What milestones should we hit and by when to meet our filing date?
  • Is there way to ensure that we can make an earlier conference date? How about a later conference date?
  • Is the filing date calculated from the date of the circuit opinion, the date of the rehearing order, or the date of the mandate?
Compliance Questions
  • What sections are included in the word count calculation? Which are excluded?
  • Have we properly stated statement of jurisdiction?
  • How should we state the parties on the cover?
Content inclusion questions
  • Do you think this item is appropriate for the appendix?
  • Should we include an item from the record in the appendix or make a reference to the record in the brief?
  • Can we make reference to a slip opinion that has just been issued?
Wording Questions
  • Are the questions presented clear to you?
  • Do you think the petition is too long/too short?
  • How should we refer to ourselves, in the first person, in the third person, or as petitioner?
Best Practices Questions
  • How many questions presented are most effective?
  • What is the best way to demonstrate conflict between circuits or states?
  • How do we keep a fact intensive case from distracting from the important legal questions involved?
