The partners in the law firm of Anderson & Boback, Kimberly J. Anderson and Janice L. Boback, are both members of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. As practitioners in the area of family law, having a case presented for appeal before the US Supreme Court is unusual. However, because Anderson & Boback focus some of their time in the niche area of “military family law” which encompasses Federal laws, we currently have a case pending approval before the highest court in the land, The United States Supreme Court. Our firm was successful in arguing this case all the way to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington D. C. We represent the 2nd wife of a former military member who died. Both our client and the deceased veteran’s 1st wife are arguing over who should be awarded his military retirement pay. Our firm won that case in Washington and obtained an award to our client of the military retirement pay. The 1st wife is appealing and has asked the US Supreme Court to hear the case.
Many attorneys are admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court, which is a great accomplishment. However, actually arguing a case before the highest court is a genuine distinction. The Supreme Court accepts less than 100 out of the more than 8,000 cases that are submitted each year on appear. This means that the list of attorneys that argue before the US Supreme Court is short. The stakes are very high at the Supreme Court level and our client wants the very best representation she can get. Our firm looks forward to appearing in Washington again to represent our client and protect the decision we obtain for her.
