Background, Education & Experience

Bill Foutris, the founder of Foutris Law Office, Ltd., was born and raised in Chicago, earning his B.A. from Northwestern University and his J.D. from Loyola University Chicago School of Law.

From personal experience, and from involvement in hundreds of civil rights cases, Mr. Foutris knows that police officers do things that they are not supposed to do. When he was a teen, Mr. Foutris had guns pointed at his head by Chicago police officers during a traffic stop, all because the two uniformed Chicago police officers that pulled him over thought he was driving in the wrong neighborhood. His firsthand experiences motivate him every day, pushing him to achieve the same result for all his clients: justice.

Mr. Foutris focuses his practice exclusively on civil rights, and police misconduct in particular. He has been involved in numerous cases involving wrongful death, police shootings, police brutality, unlawful search & seizure, false arrest, coerced confessions, malicious prosecution, and other abuses of authority.
