I am very sorry this happened to you. Unfortunately, suing DCFS will get you nowhere.


I am very sorry this happened to you and others. It is doubly troubling when the people or agencies designated to protect you only act to deny you your voice.

There are attorneys who represent adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I don't know that I have seen any of them post on Avvo. I did answer a question a few days ago with links to attorneys who handle those cases in Pennsylvania. Either search for that answer or use your usual search engine to find "Illinois adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse lawyers".

I wish you success in seeking justice and emotional resolution for your injuries.
