As Justice Scalia noted in his recently published book on appellate advocacy, this section “may well be the most important part of [an attorney's] brief.” Antonin Scalia & Bryan Garner, Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges at 83 (2008). Because the Questions Presented section is the first item that the Justices and their clerks view, its importance is paramount in gaining attention to your petition.
The Questions Presented section in a petition for a writ of certiorari “[s]hould be the colorful fly that irresistibly leads to a strike.” See Eugene Gressman, et al., Supreme Court Practice at 452 (8th ed. 2002). Unfortunately, many Questions Presented fail to attract, let alone garner a strike. Unlike other printers, we review your Questions Presented section to assist you in crafting that colorful fly.
We have conducted extensive research on the proper formulation of Questions Presented to the Court. With that in mind, our staff ensures that the issues you raise are presented in the best possible light.
