On June 7, 2023, Attorney Jeffery M. Leving received the Joe Biden Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award for 2023.

Leving was particularly grateful for the recognition from President Biden,
whom he worked with when Mr. Biden was vice president and Leving served on President Barack Obama’s National Finance Committee.

Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award“This is a great honor, and I accept it with a profound feeling of humility, because the real heroes are the courageous fathers who are willing to fight for what’s right,” Leving says. “I’ve known and represented many good fathers who dearly love
their children, and don’t want to lose them in divorce or separation. But it takes real strength for these men to stand up and fight for their kids – and I see that strength demonstrated, time after time. We would not have made the progress we have made without fathers who’ve exhibited bravery, fortitude, resolution, perseverance, and love for their children, and I thank them for their tireless efforts.”
