CHICAGO, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Family law litigator, Misty I. Gamino, was awarded the prestigious 2016 Attorney of the Year award, which is voted upon by her peers in the legal community. Attorney Gamino adds this renowned award amongst her numerous others, which includes the illustrious Rising Star award.
Attorney Gamino has won countless victories protecting fathers' rights and safeguarding children. In a landmark decision, she succeeded in persuading the court to incarcerate her client's ex-wife for brainwashing their daughter to make false allegations of sexual and physical abuse against him. The mother's scheme backfired. The judge jailed the ex-wife. She also disregarded the non-contact order and failed to pay child support to the tune of $50,000.
Gamino in another extraordinary case, rescued a young boy whose mother had a history of badly abusing him by stripping him naked and whipping him with a belt. She fought to return the boy safely to his father; she succeeded. The boy is now safe with dad.
In another notable case, Attorney Gamino won justice for her client by sparing him jail time and securing his liberty, where he was falsely accused of not paying maintenance and child support totaling almost $70,000.
