Yasmeen N. Baig earned her Juris Doctorate from Southern Illinois University School of Law at Carbondale after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois. In addition to family law, Ms. Baig brings with her a broad range of experience, including business law, and extensive probate law. Ms. Baig is skilled in sophisticated legal research, writing, strategic planning and settlement negotiations, litigation, and appellate work. Ms. Baig is honored to serve alongside her colleagues at the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd. in their compassionate fight for the rights of fathers, children and families.
- Ms. Baig successfully defended her client against an Order of Protection in which her client was falsely accused of stalking. This victory ensured her client’s freedom.
- Ms. Baig successfully defended many clients in matters involving the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, including a father falsely accused of abuse. Ms. Baig secured this father’s parental rights and protected him from the possibility of future false allegations.
- Ms. Baig secured permanent sole parental responsibility and parenting time for a father whose daughter was subjected to abuse and neglect by her mother. The father was thus able to keep his daughter out of harm’s way, begin the road to recovery from the severe abuse she endured, and provide the brightest possible future for his daughter.
- Ms. Baig obtained an order for her client to relocate with the minor children to another state in order to provide the children with optimal financial resources and access to extended family. The loving family was granted a “fresh start,” and the children were given their best opportunity at life, surrounded by a dedicated family and access to a great education.
