CHICAGO, July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Litigator Scott A. Shell from the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving fiercely and successfully defended a devastated father falsely accused of owing over $80,000.00 in child support arrearages for two adult children, one of whom had tragically passed away. Unbelievably, the State of Illinois took this matter to trial seeking every dollar that was not owed. Frustrated and overwhelmed, the father turned to Jeffery M. Leving, and his litigation team, to defend him from this grave injustice that he feared would destroy him financially and steal his freedom by incarcerating him in jail.
Shell used his proven and tenacious courtroom skills in the hotly contested trial to achieve justice for his client. At the end of this tough trial, the Judge ordered that the State had no authority to even issue the child support order that would have unjustly brought the father to financial ruin. Further, the Judge, persuaded by the defense, vacated the order and dismissed the entire case in the father's favor. Thus, this devoted dad no longer has to fear living in a jail cell due to these false accusations, especially after tragically losing his son. There is no greater pain a father can suffer than the loss of a child.
