Survivors Deserve To Hold Sex Offenders Accountable For Their Actions
Many people do not realize that sexual assault and abuse survivors have a way to hold perpetrators accountable, regardless of whether criminal charges were filed or pursued. In many cases, survivors may bring a civil lawsuit against the party or parties responsible for the assault or abuse.
These cases are often complex, especially if the abuse or assault occurred years ago, so it is best to have a caring, experienced lawyer protecting your rights. At The Fakhouri Firm, LLC, in Chicago, our attorney and staff have helped many survivors in Illinois pursue justice and compensation. We understand that this is a sensitive matter and will treat you with respect and compassion throughout your case. Your consultation with us is confidential. We represent children and men and women, including adult survivors of child sexual abuse.
Representing Survivors With Skill And Compassion
In Illinois, a law has removed the statute of limitations for sexual assault and abuse cases.

Fakhouri is an accomplished litigator who has experience protecting the rights of survivors in these types of cases. He will provide intelligent, personalized representation as he pursues justice and compensation for your losses from the abuse or assault, whether it was molestation, rape or child sexual abuse.
We can represent people bringing lawsuits against a broad range of individuals and organizations, including:

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to seek financial compensation for physical and emotional pain and suffering, loss of income, psychological counseling and other health-related needs caused by the abuse or assault. When we speak with you, we will discuss this matter in detail to determine who is responsible for what happened. If there is a party to hold liable, we will diligently pursue the compensation you deserve.
