I hired the Michael Halusek to help out with a very scary issue where I was being accused of being the father to a two year old boy. I was worried that I would lose everything due to back child support and future payments. The scariest part was that the mother was being very discourteous towards me and absolutely uncooperative, leaving me to worry about what the future would look like. The best decision I made was to call Michael and file a petition to order the mother to submit to a DNA test. Michael guided and comforted me throughout the entire process. It had felt like a giant weight had been lifted off my shoulders. He was with me from the very beginning to the very end, always available to talk to explain a situation or to just calm me down. I ended up not being the father to the child, but if I had, there is no one else I would rather have in my corner than Michael Halusek.
Michael was a beacon of hope to me at a time I thought all hope was lost. Not only was he able to defend me from a system I believed determined to undermine the rights of fathers, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and to those I care about the most. I am eternally grateful for Michael’s service. I would, and will, recommend him to anyone in a time of need.

I contacted the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving because as a Father and Grandfather I have sadly watched as my son's visitation and relationship with his daughter was being destroyed by her Mother as she was setting my son up to look like a Father who didn't care in order to remove his daughter out of the US. My son and I were very easily able to set up a Saturday morning appointment with Mr. Hagler. Just the fact we could meet with Mr. Hagler on a Saturday and upon entering the Jeffery Leving offices seeing an office full of people working on a Saturday morning was super impressive! My son's situation is not only having crushing results on his relationship with his daughter, but it is greatly effecting my Granddaughters relationship with extended family on both sides here in the US. My son has been very depressed as any one would be, but Mr. Hagler reviewed the documents my son brought and once he started talking it was very refreshing because Mr. Hagler was giving us the answers to our questions even before we asked them. Mr Hagler even touched on things we were unaware of and he understands the impact this is having on the whole family. Jim Hagler is the kind of Attorney and person that anyone in this type of situation needs to have on their side. To see my son after our meeting finally feeling that all is not lost was GREAT! I am greatly looking forward to my son continuing to work with Mr. Hagler and the Jeffery Leving team. more »

I can't describe how much I appreciate the work Jeffery Leving did for my family! My brother was going through the difficult divorce process and ex-wife kept creating more and more problems for him. A family friend referred Jeffery Leving's firm to us and within a week we saw tremendous results from them and my brother finally got to see his children. Thank you, Mr. Leving for all the hard work! more »

I have known Attorney Michael Ochoa of the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd. for over 15 years. I have worked with Mr. Ochoa as co-counsel in a number of domestic relations cases throughout the state of Illinois. Mr. Ochoa’s preparation and attention to detail are legendary, as is his determination to put in the long hours that are needed to bring a case to a successful conclusion. Mr. Ochoa has an exemplary knowledge of the intricacies of the law and his ability to make those intricacies work on behalf of his clients is outstanding. I have never known Mr. Ochoa to back down or to tire, and as a result, he has earned a reputation as a fearless, winning advocate. His court victories are legendary. Mr. Ochoa's outstanding legal skills have led to his successful work on numerous high profile and complex cases throughout the United States of America. I highly recommend Mr. Ochoa to anyone facing a custody battle, or to anyone who is dealing with the financial issues attendant to a family court case. more »

I have worked with attorney Andrey Filipowicz of the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd. for several years. We have worked as co-counsel on several highly contested matters. I find that he is a dedicated professional, who is well prepared, and plans strategically, but at the same time is able to think on his feet and improvise as needed. This makes him a formidable advocate to have on one's side. I have seen that his skill, talent and determination have helped him win seemingly unwinnable cases, both at trial and on appeal. more »

Sometimes when you fighting for your rights to your child you feel hopeless but the moment I sat down with Cathy she gave me so much hope with gaining rights to my son. She was very knowledgeable of the legal system and passionate once she heard my story seeking rights to my child. Working with Jeffery M Leving law firm and hiring Cathy was a great experience I got all rights to my son. I highly recommend Cathy to represent any father fighting for their rights to their children because of the level of integrity she has and how she goes above and beyond for you. more »

Much to my continued denial, I needed an attorney to help settle my divorce case, and Jim Hagler's firm was recommended to me by a trusted friend. As luck would have it, I was assigned Jim as my attorney, and I couldn't be happier with him. Seeing as how my divorce was completely involuntary, I had zero motivation or desire to be there, but Jim's patience, persistence, professionalism and sound advice helped shepherd me through this awful time in my life. He was always quick to respond to all communications, even if I wasn't. He has been consistently understanding and compassionate. I feel fortunate to have more »
