CHICAGO, Jan. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, January 9, 2017 at 7:30 P.M. (CST), renowned Fathers' Rights attorney Jeffery M. Leving will host the 2017 season premiere of Chicago Counterpoint TV on CAN-TV's Channel 21. Chicago Counterpoint TV provides crucial legal education to single dads, men in divorce and Chicago family law attorneys looking to expand their professional knowledge.
The season premiere will feature leading Chicago family law attorney Maureen A. Gorman, who will discuss the new Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act and raise awareness on how fathers can ultimately protect themselves and their children while following it. In addition, she will highlight changes in child support laws.
Highly regarded for safeguarding children and protecting fathers, Gorman is a fierce litigator who always puts her clients first—in a life-or-death case, she triumphed in obtaining a highly unusual order of protection granting her client immediate possession of his step-daughter, who was in dire need of life-saving heart surgery that her biological mother refused to authorize.
In addition to fighting for children and fathers, Gorman has excelled for over 20 years in defending government agencies and their employees in civil and constitutional rights cases. She has been presented the Tenacious Child Advocate and the 2017 Children's Rights Awards by her peers in the legal community.
