Housing Discrimination

The law prohibits discrimination in housing based on one’s race, color, sex, age, national origin, family status, disability, and such other bases. Such discrimination in buying or renting a home or apartment is prohibited by federal laws, Illinois state laws, discrimination laws of the City of Chicago and those of Cook County. Victims of housing discrimination may file a charge of discrimination with one or more of the various administrative agencies that handle discrimination charges and complaints.

Our attorneys provide representation with respect to discrimination in housing ranging from charge-filing, the investigation process, fact-finding/mediation conferences, through discovery and the trial in federal court, or at an administrative agency.
