Chicago 'Fathers' Rights' Attorney Is Representing Mom in Paternity Claim Against Justin Bieber

A Chicago lawyer well-known locally for his “fathers’ rights” advertising has taken on a celebrity case … for a mom who says teen singer Justin Bieber is the father of her baby boy.

Although Mariah Yeater has dismissed without prejudice her San Diego Superior Court suit against Bieber, it could be refiled at any time, her attorney, Jeffery M. Leving, told the Associated Press.

Bieber, who denies that he could be the father, has reportedly agreed to take a paternity test and the suit has been put on hold while both sides wait for the result.

“We are trying to settle this matter out of court with Bieber’s camp.” said Leving, adding: “It’s better that it’s handled out of court which is in the best interests of everybody,”
