The Law Offices of Matthew M. Fakhoury, LLC in the News

“At Monday’s hearing, defense attorney Matt Fakhoury asked Mandeltort to reconsider the request in light of the Supreme Court decision. She agreed and found the case against Haddad violated his Second Amendment rights.” Chicago Tribune
“Fakoury said his office conducted its own investigation and found a third-party witness, who was not available to authorities last summer, who did not place Barajas at the scene or holding the gun. No gun was never recovered.” Daily Herald
” ‘People are most frustrated when their economic opportunities are limited because of the trouble they got themselves into when they were younger,” he said. “It’s going to give them hope for a brighter economic future.’ ” Chicago Tribune
The free consultation, alone, was enough to convince me that I have found the attorney I was looking for. What sets this law office apart from all others is just how focused, committed, proactive, understanding, and respectful Mr. Fakhoury is. After getting off of the phone with Matt, I felt safe, welcomed, and empowered that I was going to be well taken care of. Matt’s behavior, from beginning to end, is consistent with someone who is well experienced with their craft and has a true desire to genuinely help other people.
The entire duration of the case Matt would continuously support me and always helped me feel comfortable and secure about the case. After months of waiting and emotional turmoil, we stepped into the final court hearing. Matt was relentless and swift with his defense actions. I was so happy to have hired him and I will continue to hold on to his card for friends and family if ever needed.
Because I was very tense and curious about my case, he called me on many occasions to update me on where we are and stuff. Matt is very aggressive in the court room and he worked as a state prosecutor in the court. So, he knows in and outs very well.
Matt defended me in a Domestic Battery case. From the beginning, he was honest, open and believed in my innocence and character. He was responsive and very connected in the Rolling Meadows court system. His demeanor was professional and thorough. The outcome was a dismissal and Matt will be handling the expungement from this point as I look forward to having my name and record completely cleared. I would highly recommend Matt as a superior defense attorney to anyone.

Domestic violence is a serious problem for everyone involved. Our goal at The Law Offices of Matthew M. Fakhoury, LLC is to resolve the complicated issues surrounding domestic abuse efficiently and effectively for men, women and children, and particularly for those falsely accused of domestic abuse.
