CHICAGO, Oct. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Top family law attorney Scott Shell from the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving won an important victory in Cook County by saving a seven year old boy's life when his mother denied her son treatment for his serious medical conditions. The boy's father, who had previously secured joint custody through Jeffery M. Leving and his legal team, turned back to the firm upon discovering the mother was withholding the boy's much needed treatment for severe asthma. The mother in direct violation of a court order was also not turning over the child's inhaler at visitation exchanges, leaving her own son helpless in battling crippling asthma attacks. Given that the boy's health was hanging in the balance, Attorney Shell rushed into and persuaded the Court to award the father immediate full authority over any and all medical issues and decisions for his child. The Judge agreed and correctly granted this dad full medical authority over his son. Now with his father able to legally protect his son and ensure proper medical treatment, this seven year old boy can thrive.
