“For Supreme Court practitioners, or anyone else who may need to file a brief at the U.S. Supreme Court, it could be the best $495 you ever spend.” —Tom Goldstein and Amy Howe, Book review: New edition for a classic treatise, SCOTUSblog (Jan. 28, 2014, 7:00 PM), http://www.scotusblog.com/2014/01/book-review-new-edition-for-a-classic-treatise/
“In all my decades of practice, Supreme Court Practice has remained the indispensable reference.” —Seth P. Waxman, Chair, Appellate and Supreme Court Litigation Practice Group, WilmerHale and former Solicitor General
“Supreme Court Practice is simply indispensable to me and to my colleagues. I have personal copies in my office, in a separate work room that I use, and at home. I consult it constantly. I cannot recall an issue having arisen involving the Court’s procedures, practices or customs when I have not found valuable guidance and wisdom in it. I do not see how anyone could practice before the Supreme Court without having this valuable resource readily available.”—Theodore B. Olson, Co-Chair, Appellate and Constitutional Law Practice Group, Gibson Dunn and former Solicitor General
