'Mary' is a mother who, with the help of GBLS, regained custody of her son from her abusive partner. Family Law attorney Patricia Levesh represented Mary in a highly-contested custody case.  Mary gained what she wanted: physical custody of Sam, a fixed visitation schedule, child support, and joint legal custody.
