CHICAGO, June 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2008 Philadelphia Fatherhood Festival will feature leading attorney and top litigator Arthur Kallow from the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd., as their keynote speaker. Attorney Kallow will lecture at the festival on Saturday, June 7, at 8:30am at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Art Kallow will speak of the current state of the law and problems that fathers encounter in the legal system. Kallow will discuss fathers as an untapped resource in combating youth violence. "According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, 96% of inmates grew up fatherless, out of a sample of 13,986," said Kallow. The most reliable predictor of crime in America is clearly father absence. Art Kallow is a key contributor to dadsrights.com.
