On january 7th 2014 i was leaving a crossfit gym in pompano beach and bumped a parked car that was too close to my truck, the crossfit class was finishing up there W.O.D (workout of the day) outside in the rear of the gym. I straightened my truck out and proceeded to drive to the back of the building to inform the owner of the vehicle when i was pulled over by a police officer that was parked across the street doing surveilance work. He didn't believe i was looking for the owner and made me get out of my truck and locked me in the back of his police car while he did his investigation, after waiting for a long time in the back of the police car i was asked to get out by a DUI investigator. The officer was the biggest jerk i had ever met in my life, i told him i had 2 drinks with some co workers after work around 4 o'clock, it was now 830 at night. He asked me if i would be willing to do a roadside sobriety test, after performing a pretty much perfect test he still arrested me for DUI and leaving the scene. I refused the breathalizer and i spent the night in broward county jail and was released in the morning. As soon as i was released i turned on my phone and started searching for dui lawyers, i googled top dui attorneys in broward county and Roger P Foley popped up every time. I called Mr. Foley that afternoon and was sitting in his office the next day. My first impression of Roger was this guy means buisness, he's tall, well dressed and talks with authority, he knew DUI laws inside out. I thought to myself, if i wanted a chance to get out of this situation, this was the guy i needed on my side. We discussed his fees, and he was nice enough to work out an easy payment plan for me. Before i left his office i asked him how long would this case take from beginning to end? he said about 12 months. Mr Foley got right to business, he ordered my DUI video, police report and a copy of the radio conversations with the aressting officers. After getting a depostion from the officers he scheduled a meeting for me and him to sit down and discuss a strategy for my case. We discussed all the factors and reviewed my dui video and agreed that this was a case that needed to taken to trial. Days before my trial date Mr Foley contacted the district attorney and asked her to review my case and video, after looking it over she offered me a plea, part of the plea barging included probation. I asked Roger if he thought i should take the plea, and he said you have a strong case, if it was me i wouldn't. After another couple weeks of negotiating back and forth with the district attorney and her supervisor, i was sitting in a courtroom with a motion to supress. When Mr Foley speaks on your behalf he amediatley takes control of the court room, i could tell he really intimedated the arresting officers. After 3 long hours in the court room i was denied my motion to supress evidence. Mr Foley insisted that my trial be reset and he be given time to find a case that mirrored mine where that case was won. 3 weeks later i was back in the court room, the district attorney knew Mr Foley had a strong case, so i was offered another plea. I was originally charged with a DUI, leaving the scene, and improper backing. I accepted a plea of reckless driving with adjudication with held, leaving the scene with adjudication with held, and my improper backing fine just disappeared. I received no jail time, no probation, no suspension on my license, i just received court costs.Mr Foley and i agreed that this was a win! He said i haven't seen a plea offered to anyone with a dui case that was so lenient in 10 years. My case was over in only 10 months. I know i made the right decision in hiring Roger P Foley as my dui attorney, i would recommend him to anyone with a criminal or misdemeanor case.
I hired Mr. Foley for my girlfriend's case because after meeting him he seemed like aguy that fight for his client not just for financial reasons. He was willing to work with me anyway possible. He kept me informed. The office was very professional and I got updates. On Oct 17, 2014 my girl was picked up on a warrant. Sat in Broward county then was transferred to Palm beach. Was not getting any info about why she was being held so I sought out some legal advice. I shopped around but when I met Foley and explained everything he told me my option. Gave me the good and the bad. First he got a court date immediately and had her released on SOR and then second court date case was dismissed.
I made a major mistake 24 years ago that came back to bite me in the butt and Mr. Foley took my butt out of a sling. Recommend by the car salesman when I bought my car. I had just been in an accident and my Dad asked the salesman if by chance if he knew any lawyers and He made a photocopy of Mr. Foley's card. We met with him and made me feel comfortable. My dad was impressed with his knowledge of the case law. I decided to hire him and today and I am very satisfied with the results. I can breathe again
I was pulled over and the police found a bowl of marijuana. My friend told me to hire a lawyer so I did not get taken advantage o. I looked up trial lawyers for marijuana cases and I found Mr. Foley. I called his office and set up my appointment. I spoke to him and I hired him. Mr. Foley got my case dismissed without any problems. Whenever I called with a question they answered it and got in contact with me no problems. They showed up to court without any problems. I have heard of other lawyers not even showing up. I would recommend to my friends and family.
Attorney Foley said what he said he was going to do and I was not convicted. I was arrested for DUI and it was looking like a very difficult case and I did not want to go to trial. He was able to have the charge reduced to reckless driving by negotiating with the state and no conviction. I had a friend that he got off of a DUI and he recommended me and I would recommend him to a friend if they needed an attorney.
I was arrested for burglary and grand theft. it was my first arrest. Not knowing the legal process I had help from my parents to research attorneys and after that we found Mr. Foley who was very knowledgeable and new ways to explain the legal process to me. Although it took a long time, he was able to maintain a motion to suppress t get it dismissed. there were also recurring problems with the prosecutor but mr. foley still knew how to handle the situation effectively and was able to get the results that I wanted. I am very happy about it. I could not ask for more from Mr. Foley and I am very thankful.
I started with another attorney who was obviously in it for the money. I was referred to Mr. Foley by a friend. From the beginnng Mr. Foley was honest. He listened to my lifestyle and did not judge me. He was realistic about the case. He made a payment plan that was easy and convenient for my income. It took a while for the process but it gave me a better outcome then I think I would have had. I was offerred jail time because I had previous charges and I ended up getting probation and my record will still be able to be sealed when its over. I would recommend The Law Office of Roger P. Foley to anybody who neeeds a criminal lawyer.
I can never forget the turmoil we were in as a family when our son for the first time faced serious charges. He was a teenager on a golf course with his friends when as a prank decided to drive around maintenance golf cart for the fun of it, unfortunately that incident landed my son with a charge of grand theft felony. Hefty charges for a prank. The next few months while waiting for the courts was a nerve wrenching experience, it started with my search for an attorney. I went to five attorneys in order to make a decision as to whom I would pick. All were rated well, had good records, and while half charged in the same price range, other were astronomically higher. It was clear their only passion was money not so much what's best for the client. My gut feelings led to Roger P. Foley. He was realistic, but at the same tie he didn't make us feel as if our son was a terrible criminal as many others did. He gave us hope while others remained pessimistic about keeping him out of a juvenile jail. He gave logical examples and personal experiences which created a sense of trust between us. The case ended up with no jail time, no juvenile jail, nor probation. Most of all I can tell you through the years whatever he told us would be his hope and goals for a case, happened. We have yet to be disappointed with the results, and although we hope never to need his services again, it's a piece of mind know that he is there as a sign of hope and care all the way.
My fiancé was wrongly convicted of multiple felonies and was abused by the justice system and power hungry cops. I went in to meet with Mr. Foley to give my statement and was so happily surprised with his professionalism and his true passion for what he does. He completely understood what a serious predicament we were in, and wanted to defend us. He told me about similar cases he has worked where people are screwed over by the law, which is put in place to protect us. I felt that I was in safe hands and relieved, but he made sure I understood what the worst case scenario could be. He’s not a man to give you high hopes in a high profile case; he gives you the raw reality of it. Although his presence alone gives you a sense of hope, I am happy to say that my fiancés charges have been dismissed even when I feared the worst. I have recommended him to my mom to help her in another unjust situation, and will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs the best representation around. He is your go to guy.
I have known Mr. Roger Foley for many years. My husband picked him out of numerous lawyers when faced with then our teenage son’s initial charge. Mr. Foley has become not only our trusted and devoted lawyer, but also a guide for our son. Mr. Foley has not only helped my son’s charges get dismissed as a teenager, but continued to trust in our son and direct him on the righteous path. As some people believe my son has done “boyish things”, the reality is that the law is extremely tough and unrelenting. When my son was faced with severe felonies due to wrongful charges, Mr. Roger Foley helped get the charges dismissed. Mr. Foley is not only an example of professionalism but also a humanitarian. He has shown compassion and trust. Mr. Foley believes in his clients, however he is a realist and will no doubt give his honest professional opinion. He will not give false hopes, however behind the scene he will fight for you with all his knowledge and power. Yes he has won my son’s cases, and felonies have been dismissed, however he truly is an exceptional lawyer and continues to be a mentor.
As my husband and I are both professional people, we have the outmost respect for Mr. Roger P. Foley.
