The highest court in most states is the Supreme Court. But in a few the highest court has a different name: E.g., in New York State and Maryland it is the Court of Appeal. Confirm the name of your court.
Justice is a title and honorific for a judge of an appellate court. A chief justice is the head judge in a national supreme court. In lower courts the highest-ranking judge is most often called a chief judge.
