Roger P. Foley got me reinstated. Also he got my COS waived, an got me to still be terminated off of probation on my expected termination date. I feel very comfortable with the decision my lawyer made for me. Also i would refer him to anyone who has a criminal felony or misdemeanor case.
I choose Mr. Foley because I knew the name and then I looked at google and that was awesome. Additionally, he was willing to work with us (my wife and I) at a difficult time in our life and the only person willing to help. I feel accomplished and motivated that Mr. Foley helped to get this done. Definitely made us feel like we were not out of options and that there was light at the end of the tunnel. Result was very satisfying and motivating so I can move on with my life. Thanks for hard work.
I was concerned about having a permanent injunction for stalking and was not guilty of anything so I needed a lawyer. After 3 months of having a friend stay with me they falsely accused me of prostitution and kidnapping. I read reviews about lawyers and found Mr. Foley. I felt pretty confident when meeting him about his experience and I felt protected. Mr. Foley did an excellent job defending me and putting the petitioner in a state where they could not make any more lies about me. The injunction was dismissed. The process with the staff was very smooth and I received a call back from Mr. Foley quickly. He was on time and very prepared to fight the case.
Mr. Foley is truly a man of his word and a person a great character, he exemplifies true professionalism, and it’s rare that you meet someone like that in a professional stand point. He never made any promises to me but I felt in a sense that he believed in me and in my case. He was always up front with me. I was facing about 4-5 years in PRISON for a heinous crime that I did not commit. This would've destroyed me, especially when I never had any problems with the law except for minor traffic infractions but I digress. I was falsely accused of grand theft in the third degree. After going through all the ridiculousness of this felony case and having Mr. Foley fight the false charges for me, my case was dismissed/dropped. He took his time to explain everything regarding my case and made every effort to keep me at ease. Since then I was blessed to get my college degree, get married and have a newer and richer perspective on life and people. Overall, I highly recommend Mr. Foley, so to whomever reading this please note that everyone’s case is different, but I had one of the best lawyers on my side, who will go to bat for you (Mr. Foley) and the best judge (My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ) who orchestrated this final verdict. Thank you Mr. Foley for taking my case and having all the felony charges dismissed.
My wife was attacked by two other females and I tried to protect her. I yelled at them to stop but when I tried to intervene it was not possible to stop them. My wife was pregnant at the time so I had fear that she and the baby were in danger. I wanted to protect my wife and unborn child and feared losing the baby. I knew I had a gun in the car and I grabbed the gun and fired two shots in the air to make them stop. They did. We then left and I called the police but when I got to my destination the police arrived two to three hours later and they arrested my wife and I. My wife's case was demised but I was charged with 10 20 life charge for aggravated assault with firearm and discharge of a firearm which is a mandatory 20 year sentence in the state of Florida. I hired Mr. Foley because I heard he was a good lawyer. It was a really hard case and we met 10-15 times to go through the process. At first they offered me 10 years in prison day for day, then they wanted 5 years probation and I did not accept. They then took back the offer so I was facing 20 mandatory years. Then he filed for a motion which took two days for him to argue. I was scared. There was 6-7 witnesses and the judge needed to make a decision. I knew the witnesses were lying but mr. Foley during cross examination he showed they were making up stories and stuff. After the motion we were going to come back again for the judge to decide but Mr. Foley was working really hard on the case and a few days prior to going to Court I received a call from Mr. Foley telling me that the state was going to reduce the charge from a 20 to life to Misdemeanor and I could go ahead and get my gun permit then I have to complete some classes and community service and then all the charges will be dismissed. I am very happy that Mr. Foley beat the case and I did not go to prison. My wife and I have just had another baby and I am so happy to have my family and not be in a prison. I feel like I hired the right lawyer. He is real good. During the whole process I had financial problems and he worked with me because he believed me and said he would help. He said he would do everything to beat the case and he did. I am proud of him and his firm.
I Violated probation In the 80s on an OUI conviction and also had a few outstanding traffic tickets. Then I left the state. I hired him to solve the VOP problem. He was the second lawyer I contacted. I had a fairly lengthy consultation with him by phone. I was impressed not only by his knowledge of the law and how he proposed to proceed if hired, but also his knowledge of that specific court and judge. (the Judge has a reputation of being tough) He negotiated an extremely favourable settlement with the State of Florida without the need for me to appear. The first lawyer I spoke with said that i would definitely need to appear. Mr Foley was pretty sure I would need to appear but said that he would try his best to waive appearance. There is a probation supervisor in that court system that is frankly amazed at the deal that Mr Foley was able to obtain.
One other thing that helped in my case was the fact that I had retained proof of OUI school that I completed in 1989. ALWAYS save your paperwork!
I hired Mr Foley to help expunge my juvenile record and he did an awesome job. From start to finish Mr Foley and his legal assistant Christina kept me informed as the process went along. Also, whenever I had any questions they were promptly answered and Mr Foley was straightforward with me no BS at all. Today me and Mr Foley were at my expungement hearing and of course I got the results I wanted EXPUNGEMENT ORDER GRANTED thanks to Mr Foley for his hard work, and Christina for her work behind the scenes. I HIGHLY recommend the Law Offices of Roger P Foley to anyone who has legal troubles and needs a lawyer. Finally, to Mr Foley and Christina I thank you for your dedication and commitment in handling my case it means a lot to me. I hope to never need your services again, but if I ever do you guys will be the first I call thanks.
I very rarely give a five star rating to anyone or any company because of how difficult it is to truly earn that classification. Simply put, Roger P. Foley is a five star attorney.
I was recently involved in an incident at a very prestigious hotel in West Palm Beach. My wife and I were finishing up a nice evening when I found myself in an altercation with another hotel patron and his friends which led to me physically defending myself and my wife. Although the police found the other individual to be the cause of the altercation, was I was still arrested for disorderly intoxication. I am active in my church, a father of five, and I work in an industry where a conviction would alter the lives of myself and my family. I needed the representation of an attorney who would handle my situation with a high level of professionalism and urgency.
Mr. Foley exceeded my expectations. His communication with me throughout the case was honest, direct, and to the point. His knowledge level of the law and the court system is excellent. He demonstrated diligence by calling the prosecuting attorney after hours to negotiate my case on more than one occasion. Lastly, his physical presence in the court room is commanding. Because of his height and size, Mr. Foley is an imposing figure and fills the courtroom with his presence and personality.
All in all, I find Mr. Foley’s integrity as an attorney to be outstanding and I recommend him very highly.
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.
