The Premier Chicago Family Law Firm

With the sheer number of family law attorneys and law firms in the Chicago area and nationwide, it can be very difficult to find the right attorney who will provide you with high-caliber service, reliable legal counsel and zealous representation. At the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd., we have assembled the best family law litigators recruited from across the country. Our lawyers are what set us apart.

Our legal team is handpicked for excellence in legal advocacy and deeply held commitment to the health and welfare of our clients and their children. As a law firm, we are built from the ground up for the specific purpose of successfully handling the challenging cases for which many firms lack the will or resources. We regularly engage in complex, high-stakes and high-conflict matters in Cook County and across Illinois, and on behalf of clients throughout the United States. Attorneys of our firm have litigated in state and federal courts of Illinois, and before the Illinois Supreme Court, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Our founding attorney, Jeffery M. Leving, has been featured on national TV and radio programs as a leading authority on fathers’ rights, family law and legislative reform. He is the author of three books — Fathers’ Rights, Divorce Wars, and How To Be A Good Divorced Dad — the latter of which was praised by President Obama. In 30-plus years of practice, Mr. Leving has been involved in high-profile and groundbreaking cases, including the international custody case of Elian Gonzales. Over the years, Jeffery M. Leving has built a team of top litigators from across the U.S. who share the same commitment to family law ideals.

We Stand With You From Beginning To End

Our core practice focuses on complex cases in the following categories that can overlap but always require highly effective discovery, analysis, strategy and advocacy:

  • Children’s issues – Sole and joint custody, paternity, child support
  • Divorce – Petitions of dissolution, property classification and division, maintenance/alimony
  • Other family law concerns –  Grandparents’ rights, adoption, appeals, guardianships
  • Protecting fathers – Countering the system’s residual bias against dads
  • Domestic violence – Orders of protection, defending false abuse allegations, prosecuting real abuse

Our efforts in this area of law have earned us a national reputation for excellence, including accolades from two U.S. presidents and recognition by the Illinois House of Representatives. Our commitment to the health and welfare of children and families goes beyond the courtroom as well. Our attorneys are deeply involved in the development of Illinois family law. Jeffery M. Leving was instrumental in drafting the Illinois statute on joint custody. He and the other lawyers of the firm remain committed to working with legislators and public figures to raise awareness for domestic relations issues in Illinois and throughout the United States.
