CHICAGO, June 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On this Sunday, June 16th at 6:00 AM (CST), leading attorneys Alexandra Martinez and Timothy O'Grady of the Chicago based Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd. (www.derechosdelpadre.com) bring Fathers' Rights to La Ley 107.9 FM for a Father's Day special. Attorneys Martinez and O'Grady will discuss the paths that led them to champion fathers' civil rights and their victories in extraordinary custody disputes, as well as what men everywhere need to know to protect their legal rights as fathers during divorce.
Attorney Martinez received her Juris Doctorate from DePaul University College of Law and is a proud member of the American Immigration Lawyers' Association. Before joining the Leving Law Firm, she contributed to the Advanced Immigrant Defense Clinic and successfully defended falsely accused parents in Department of Children & Family Services' cases. She also assertively and effectively safeguarded victims of domestic violence and has helped immigrant families in contested divorces as well as foreclosure, bankruptcy, evictions and immigration issues. "Failure is not my option for me", said Attorney Martinez, a highly skilled and strategic litigator.
Attorney O'Grady is a passionate and tough litigator, with a proven track record of many court victories protecting the rights of fathers and their children. Focusing on marital and family law matters, he has earned a reputation for being fiercely assertive while representing his clients in divorce proceedings involving complicated, contested paternity, child custody, support and visitation issues. "The health and well-being of children are my top priority," said Attorney O'Grady.
Known for hard-hitting advocacy on behalf of fathers, the firm's founder attorney Jeffery Leving has reunited fathers and children since 1981, helping reunite Elian Gonzalez with his father in Cuba, where he won international support. Leving met privately with State Department officials providing strategic recommendations regarding international parental child abduction in Mexico and other countries. In 2012, President Barack Obama awarded Leving the National Lifetime Call to Service Award.
