About a year ago we were lucky enough to help brief and argue the case of Howell v. Howell at the Arizona Supreme Court. The case was about the division of a military veteran’s disability pay during and after a divorce (SCOTUSBlog has a succinct explanation of the issue here). Unfortunately, we did not succeed at the Arizona Supreme Court. Jenner Block, a huge law firm based in Washington, D.C., contacted us and asked if they could take the Howell case up to the Supreme Court of the United States for free. Obviously, we said yes. Today, after a long wait, the Supreme Court of the United States accepted review of the Howell case. Needless to, we are really excited!
