I think your firm did a great t job on 3 cases that were 28 years old. The results are bester than expected. I truly appreciate the hard work that you and your firm put forth in obtaining the results that we did on this case.

Roger represented me 6 months ago on a possession charge and the result was better than expected. He always was there for advice and counsel even on weekends . I called him today five o'clock on Saturday for advice on a probation violation and he talked to me about my options . He even offered to represent me if needed with no money up front if I was financially struggling. And we could come up with payment options later. Basically what I'm saying is that foley is down to earth and straight up. He honestly listens and cares about his work. I'm the type of person that wouldn't take the time to write a review if I wasn't truly impressed with someone or something. Thanks Roger for everything!!!!

I was arrested for a VOP in April 2013 and was release on my OR. My status hearing was in September 2013. I consulted over the phone with several attorneys and decided upon Mr. Foley. His retainer for my VOP was for $2,500.
After my initial phone consultation, we never spoke again until status hearing at which he showed up unprepared 1.5 hours late. This enraged the Judge and the prosecutors. Upon his late arrival, he quickly reviewed my file. The Prosecutor threatened prison time and stated they were gong to add an additional VOP. My VOP's were for non-payment of court ordered payments and not informing my Probation Officer immediately upon obtaining employment (I told her 2 months late).
I was re-arrested at that status hearing. A new hearing was set 7 days later and he was verbally warned by the Judge to not be late. At the second hearing, he was 45 mins late AGAIN! He quickly approached me and stated he needed a $15,000 retainer instead of the $2,500 right now in cash. I told him that I could not afford that so he approached the bench and withdrew himself from the case so they put me back in jail since I had no attorney.
This is for a VOP mind you, not an initial arrest and case. Why the $15,000 was demanded I am unsure. Only depositions were required from my probation officers to get their facts and evidence. i believe that his main issue was that I had a top Prosecutor against me and he did not want to go up against him.
His character, both ethically and personally, are extremely lacking and were amplified by his lack of respect for the court in his non-compliance of mandated court appearance as well as his lack of concern for my circumstances arising from his tardiness and ignorance of my case.
Mr. Foley never returned my retainer, even though he never handled one motion, filing, or argument. His tardiness (twice) cost me my freedom in the beginning and more money as I was left to retain another competent attorney who knew how to handle a VOP (which resulted in being false after her depositions were conducted).

I was charged with Domestic Violence few years ago and I was referred to Roger Foley from a family member! Roger is a BULLDOG! He was great and very aggressive in helping me beat this bogus case. Case was dismissed! He was on top of everything til the end!!
Now again in need of his help and wouldn't go anywhere else!

You get what you paid for absolutely applies here 100%. My parents were arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell Synthetic Marijuana a.k.a (Spices). Roger was referred to us by my parent’s bondsman. After meeting with him, I immediately knew that this guy was very aggressive and he was very honest from the beginning. He didn’t scare us or didn’t exaggerate anything to get retained unlike the other attorneys we had consulted. We decided to retain Roger and couldn’t be happier with the results. My parents were facing up to 5 years in prison and ended up with just a few months of probation. Roger really works hard for his clients and consistently works to find loop holes in cases. He is a straight shooter and does not give up on cases. He is also humble and caring towards his clients. Best quality we liked of Roger was his work ethics and that every time we emailed him, he responded back within the matter of minutes. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Roger P Foley.

I was in an accident and chearged with a DUI. I did a google search and found Mr. Foley to have very good reviews. I called and made an appointment for the following day. He seemed very aggresive and forthcoming. I talked to other attorneys and Mr. Foley seemed to have the best case. He fought really hard and went through every bit of evidence. He even called me on a sunday night to go over the case that he spent the night working on. Because of the facts and evidence, the case had a low probability of success and I couldnt risk any jail time, so I plead out. I got the minimum of everything and no jail time!

Placed on probation for 2 years and was illegible for early termination and about to loose a promotion at work. I started looking for lawyers in Google. When I came across Mr. Foley's reviews I read about 10 of them and all were positive. I decided to call him and hire him. He let me know that the state and probation objected to the early termination but we went to court today and Mr. Foley talked and the judge granted it. I would highly recommend anyone needing a criminal lawyer call him.

I had a DUI that I handled on my own and was given probation and community service. As the last day was approaching on my sentence, i had called the clerk of courts to find out what documentation was required, to find out that i had violated my probation a week prior to me checking in. in my state of panic my brother had helped me find a lawyer online and read the impeccable reviews of Mr. Roger P. Foley and immediately felt compelled to call him. I had hired Mr. Foley and in my wait for a court date I had gotten arrested and spent 20 days in jail. On the day of my hearing the state was asking for several more months in jail time for my first violation. Mr. Foley hadn't even been up on the podium for 2 min. and had talked them down to time served and the termination of my probation. Since then I have graduated with honors and have been greatly appreciating the simple freedoms in life. Because of his hard work and dedication to my case Mr. foley has given me my life back and now I look forward to moving forward and beginning a new.

The money was well spent. My wife was arrested for a vop 2 years after the fact. Looking at someone with the most reviews and found Mr. Foley. My wife was facing 5 years prison on attempted trafficking case by violating her probation. He called me back and was straight up with me and told me she was facing a lot of prison time. After going to the initial court date realized how much time the state was offering (4years) then we decided to hire Mr. Foley. Mr. Foley worked very hard and diligent and was able to reinstate her and she still has her job and family. Nothing short of miracle because I scored 4 years minimimum. I would recommend highly

Went online to look for an attorney to help me in my battery case. I looked at Mr. Foley's reviews and was impressed. Once I met him I felt very comfortable and confident that he could accomplish the job. I am very grateful he was able to get the case dismissed. I would recommend him to anyone needing a criminal attorney. Me meti en la internet buscando un abogado que me ayudara en mi case de abuso domestico. Chequee la informacion del abogado Foley y las resenas y me impresiono muchisimo. Cuando entre a su oficina me senti muy calmada y segura de que el me podria ayudar con mi caso. Estoy super contenta y agradecida eternamente porque me pudo remover todos los cargos por completo. Recomendaria a este abogago a cualquier persona que necesite un abogado criminal.
