My son and I felt lost and thought I would never see my grandson and he his son again after the mother threatened to take the child out of state with her new boyfriend. i contacted Jeffery Leving and after speaking to him, he gave us hope and we hired him to stop this woman from removing my grandchild away. Jeffery Leving fought hard for us. My son now has custody of his son and I can visit with my grandson anytime. Thank you Jeffery Leving.

After 10 years in a difficult marriage, I clicked on their dadsrights.com site, and on a whim decided to contact them. Mr. Leving got the ball rolling for me and I'm so happy he did. I have joint custody of my daughter and am not paying nearly what I expected to in child support.

I wanted to take the time to write to you and your staff of how grateful I am since attorneys Jeffery Leving, James Hagler, and Maureen Gorman and staff at the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd. have taken on my case. When I went to you I was in a desperate need, because I was in a fight for my daughter that I thought would never get resolved. My rights as a father was being pushed to a side and ignored for 8 months until I was represented by your law firm.
I have appreciated all that you guys have done; I am informed of my case if any immediate information is needed, changed, or updated. I have been truly blessed with your law firm because of the consistent clear communication, guidance, respect, and dedication to my case. Since I have been represented by the Fathers Rights Law Firm, I have learned the rights of a father that were not presented to me before.
With my move to another state was a risk I was taking to be able to survive when I lost everything. Because of your law firm I will be able to spend time with my daughter this summer; which means the world to me and it was all done because you guys made it possible for me.
I know my case is not yet finished, but I again I am truly blessed to see the outcomes of my rights as a father.
Thank you all for dedication and commitment to my case as a father. May you all continue to be a blessing to other fathers who are not being heard in this society.

It is a privilege for me to work with Jeffery Leving and the best family law firm in the nation. Mr. Leving is indefatigable when it comes to protecting his clients. He works non-stop to make sure none of his clients become a target looking for an arrow. He has your back. His legal acumen is second to none, by winning cases that are intensely complex or viewed as a hopeless cause to others. His track record over the last 30 years is evidence of this, particularly, the Elian Gonzalez case he won. There, everybody thought it was an impossible case to win. Mr. Leving continues to win the “unwinnable” cases. As a result, Mr. Leving has saved countless children from dangerous situations. He has reunited families across the world. If you think your case cannot be won, speak to Mr. Leving. Not only does he provide the legal expertise that he only can, he provides the path to people who feel their family law matter is hopeless. Mr. Leving is the sword and the shield that every client needs.
