I had a consultation with an attorney at the this low-rate firm. He told me that I could get my kids back if I paid a $10K retainer -- this was after they ran a credit check to see how much I made and was worth. I was given their song and dance which amounted to smoke and mirrors. I felt like I was being sold on their services by used car salesmen trying to sell lemons. All the employees looked miserable. I knew going in that I probably wouldn't hire them because I had heard such bad things but wanted to give them a chance to fight for my rights. He bashed my children's mother and said that she wouldn't know what hit her when they were done with her. That was not what I wanted at all. I wanted my kids half the time. They didn't listen to my needs. They talked over me.

My consultation with The Jeffery M. Leving's firm was very helpful. I now have direction in which to go in getting my rightful parenting time with my son. After my consult with ATTORNEY: Anthony S. D'Agostino I feel that I was giving the right tools. I completely think my upcoming court date will go just great.

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.

To Jeffery M. Leving and everyone on your firm-
This will probably be the first of many Thank You's you receive from me regarding what you made happen on this memorable day, this full mooned Friday the 13th;
Friday the 13th, 2017
A day that will not soon or ever be forgotten by me.
Thank you not only for your amazing mission and work which affects society, families and children in such an influential way, but for much more.
Thank you for the way you personally saved my relationship with my only son, and so feverishly fought to cure such a blatant injustice. Without your help, I would have no doubt been a causality of archaic laws, designed by our government to create the next generation of fatherless, thoughtless, dependent, slaves. Instead my son has a chance to be fathered, and leave a legacy of his own- that was influenced by me, and you get the credit for giving him that chance.
Thank you for being a positive influence to me. Many people get to father a child, maybe a few children, but as a business leader and advocate of the Father's Rights Movement you are a father to many. You are the father of this crucial movement, and I am proud and grateful to be one of your children in this mission.
At our most primal core, the purpose of every son is to someday become a father. I hope that through the friendship and mentorship the Lord has blessed me with through the gift of bringing you into my life, that I someday can father a thought movement as worthy of distinction as the one you have created.
Words are not enough to thank you. Nothing I can ever really do will suffice. But I am grateful, and all I can do is humbly express how grateful I am, knowing that nothing I can ever do will make up for this grace.
Thank you Mr Leving,
Vito G Glazers

I hired Jeffery Leving after a previous lawyer did nothing for my case. I really didn't have much hope but Jeffery Leving gave me hope. I still was not sold until we got to court and to my surprise the results were amazing. I now see my 3 kids every weekend and some weekdays. My relationship with my children is stronger than it has ever been. I am spending the first Easter in years with them and cannot wait! I owe all of this to Jeffery Leving and his team of lawyers who gave me hope when I had none and then delivered on their promises. I could not be happier with the result and am so grateful a firm like this exists to help fathers! I'm telling all my friends about this firm and would if I ever need a lawyer again (hopefully not) I will not hesitate to call this firm. They are the pioneers for fathers and know the system inside and out. After my case I learned Jeffery Leving even helped write some of the visitation laws in Illinois and judges have worked at his firm. I now know why they are the best. Thank you for reading my long post. I hope this is helpful to you and you avoid the low level lawyers and hire the best. God bless you!

I hired the Leving Law Firm on January 2016 regarding a need for response to a post divorce case petition filed by ex-wife with frivolous accusations. She was Pro Se and filed a complaint for 3 items: Not utilizing Family Wizard, which my account was renewed just prior to petition filed, content of my work schedule (agreement states to just provide copy regardless of content) and claim of discussing parenting time with minor child after she desired to change my days which is a violation of the agreement.
I paid a $5,000 retainer fee and hired their firm as they boasted about their strengths of Father's Rights. I departed on a 2 week work trip and the response was due to be filed close to my return day. While traveling I had communication from one attorney. The documents were prepared and sat idle from end of January thru February 2016 the first court date. I attended one meeting with attorney assigned to case in early February. On February 2016 two attorneys show up to court. The Pro Se ex-wife indicates the case number on documents prepared was improper, resulting in rescheduling court as ex-wife need more time to prepare response to modification of agreement. In hindsight, the modification could have been dropped. I received my first invoice with excessive charges, to include background checks, multiple attorneys, rental cars and strategic planning etc for $10,859. The case remained virtually idle until April 18, 2016 with invoices continuing monthly for about $5,000. I terminated their services after the April court date, resulting in another court order virtually status quo of agreement terms, attorneys were not prepared to counter ex. I terminated their services immediately and requested the final paying another $2900 ($13,800 sub total). The invoices continued for charges to include Motion to Withdraw etc, requesting an additional $8,000 bringing the total cost to about $21,000. They settled for $3,000 after another court hearing and a scheduled mediation with Chicago Bar Association. Close examination of their fee agreement gives the Leving Law firm the ability to add excessive charges to include multiple attorneys, motion to withdraw, rental cars, parking fees, copies of documents such as receipts or background checks etc...in other words they can say they did the work with having to provide proof unless you pay for it.
If anyone from the law firms claims this review is fraudulent, I will be delighted to challenge them on any TV network, radio or with AVVO management

I strongly recommend the The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving. Laura B. Inns and Catherine Delgadillo are very passionate and unrelenting attorneys in regards to fathers rights. I was in litigation for more than 3 years. I was feeling hopeless, more than 20 continuances, until I found the office of The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving. They took the time to assess my case, developed a plan, and in three months my situation was resolved! My case was well prepared therefore the other party ended up paying some of my attorney fees. Thank you, Laura and Catherine !!!

Now, I am a free woman with sole custody of my daughter and I got what I wanted and deserved in court thanks to this incredible law firm! I recommend it to anyone who wants to win their fight in child custody, support and divorce!

He told my husband In a consultation "he didn't have a leg to stand on" when it came to fighting for custody of his daughter (my step daughter) we went elsewhere and fought and won custody! If he's about fathers rights he sure didn't show it that day! No confidence whatsoever! Glad we didn't take his advice! I raised my stepdaughter for 10 years, her biological mother is still not in her life now! Thanks for nothing Jeffrey!
