We Uphold Your Civil Rights
When someone violates your civil rights, our team at The Fakhouri Firm, LLC, will demand accountability. After a civil rights violation, attorney Robert Fakhouri and his staff can help you file a complaint with the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division or file a private lawsuit, depending on the circumstances.
You can rely on Mr. Fakhouri’s experience and his commitment to clients. He has built his law practice on protecting the rights of people in Illinois against powerful entities whose negligence caused them harm.
Generally, we handle civil rights lawsuits in state and federal courts related to:
- Certain cases of sexual assault and abuse
- Misconduct of law enforcement
Many of these cases involve injuries suffered due to police brutality or the negligence of another party. We will investigate the case and determine whether compensation is an option.
Incarceration Does Not Mean Total Loss Of Liberties
We represent inmates whose civil rights have been violated. We know how difficult it can be to have a voice when you are behind bars; we are here to serve as your advocate.
Common civil rights violations in jail include:
- Physical and emotional abuse
- Failure to keep certain inmates separate from other prison populations
- Failure to provide adequate medical care
- Failure to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled inmates
- Sexual assault
There are various acts and procedures that must be accounted for in civil rights cases – especially if you are incarcerated. A seasoned lawyer can be critical to understanding your rights under these acts and explaining the appropriate course of action that must be taken.
