Consider Filing A Petition For Writ Of Certiorari
A petition for writ of certiorari is a request that the Supreme Court order a lower court to send the record of your case up for its review. Such requests are typically considered for cases that:
- May have a nationwide impact
- May reconcile conflicting decisions from two or more federal circuit courts
- May be valuable as a precedent-setting case
Out of thousands of petitions for writs of certiorari, the Supreme Court typically accepts about 100 to 150 per year to review. Those that are accepted have often been decided in a U.S. Court of Appeals or when a constitutional issue was considered by the highest court in the state where the case was tried.
The appellate team at Rosenberg Law Firm is selective about taking on cases that may be appropriate for petitions for writs of certiorari. If your federal case focuses on constitutional issues, it may qualify for a federal appeal through the Supreme Court.
