A fierce litigator and cross-examiner, Filipowicz is committed to protecting fathers and children. He has reunited thousands of fathers with their children worldwide—in one case, he coordinated legal efforts in the U.S. and China to recover a kidnapped child in Shanghai. In another, he convinced a Judge to grant his client custody of his child, who had been physically abused by his severely mentally ill mother. He has also won multiple Hague victories, from uniting a Polish father seeking return of his daughters to Poland, to reuniting a Mexican father seeking return of his son to Mexico.
Failure is never an option for Filipowicz. He has been a legal expert on Chicago's WLEY-FM and Telemundo television. He has also served as a member of the United States Central Authority's Attorney Network.
Among his many victories, Filipowicz has also been presented International Hague Victory, Illinois Super Lawyer and Child Protection Awards by his peers in the legal community.
