-- CHICAGO – May 10, 2012 – On April 26, 2012 the Illinois House of Representatives adopted Resolution No. 995 honoring Attorney Jeffery M. Leving “for his work in safeguarding the rights of fathers and protecting the welfare of children and families in this State” and for his “hard work, integrity, and dedication for the people of the State of Illinois.” The Illinois House of Representatives resolved that Leving be presented with a copy of this Resolution “as a symbol of our esteem and respect.”
“I am very honored by this lifetime achievement recognition by the Illinois House of Representatives,”
said Attorney Leving.
Leving also serves as the Chair of the Illinois Council on Responsible Fatherhood (http://responsiblefatherhood.illinois.gov)
at the pleasure of the Governor and was honored by the White House by being presented with the President’s Volunteer Service Award for his work with the Council.
Leving served as an expert resource to the first White House Office of Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships Town Hall Meeting on Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Families in Chicago.
Leving’s newly released, How to Be a Good Divorced Dad
received both praise and support from Francis Cardinal George of the Archdiocese of Chicago and President Obama. Two world leaders, often with very different views, both came together and agreed on the importance of Leving’s new book and his work for families and children.
