A judgment for over $28,000 was awarded a client being represented by Arthur B. Alexander. The client had retained Mr. Alexander to respond to an action filed by her ex-husband to modify the amount of retirement pay that she was receiving, claiming that she was entitled to 39%, not the 47% which she had been receiving. After a complete audit by Mr. Alexander, he determined that 39% was the correct amount that client was entitled to. However, the Mr. Alexander also concluded that the adjustment to 39% should commence in January, 2012; and, that our client had received payments in an amount less than what she was entitled to for the years in question, and therefore was owed a substantial amount for the arrears.
Mr. Alexander filed a cross-petition seeking the above relief for our client.
Following several days of trial, and various post-trial briefs, the Court agreed with client and awarded her a Judgment for a total of$28,335.82, representing the underpayment (arrears) from September 2005.
