Final Touches

Getting Your Pleading Together

Note: If you are used to making "blue backs" for your pleadings, don't bother. We just tear them off and throw them away.

Note:The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals requires that file stamped copies of pleadings be placed in the record on appeal so it is a good practice to keep conformed copies in the office file.
