U.S. Courts of Appeals

There are 13 appellate courts that sit below the United States Supreme Court. These Federal Courts are called the U.S. Courts of Appeals. At Record Press, we are experts in the appellate process. We have helped our clients successfully file their appeals in each of the 12 regional circuits as well as the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Why is it so important to make a good impression on your appeal to a US Court of Appeals? The Supreme Court of the United States hears only a fraction of the cases it is asked to review each year. That means a decision from one of these 13 appellate courts is very often the last word. At Record Press, we can help you make a good impression by ensuring that your papers are in compliance with Federal court rules and have a professional appearance.
