I came to Rafe when I was unfairly arrested for a felony charge. In the beginning, everything seemed wonderful. He seemed to know what he was doing and I was confident that my case would be handled correctly. What should've been a simple case for him turned into a disaster when he moved out of the state right in the middle of my case, before my court date!! Apparently he knew he would be moving away in the middle of my case, and he still took my $5,000 anyway and assured me that he would be able to take the case. He assured me multiple times that it would be okay, and that his friend would be able to be my attorney. This man was not even a criminal defense attorney and had no idea what he was doing. I ended up CHARGED with the felony and I've only just now finished 2 years of probation. FIVE YEARS FROM NOW I will be able to start trying to get this charge expunged.... FIVE YEARS!!! My life has been put on hold for 2 years at the most important time of my life, and my life will STILL be on hold for 5 more years. I paid VERY good money to this man and he completely forgot about me. Thank you Rafe, to put it simply: You ruined my life.
Here is a letter I wrote Rafe after he represented me. I am not internet savvy at this type of posting so not sure if this is the right way to add a review, but felt so strong about this man's professional excellence I wanted others to know. I have used a few attorneys in my life for different needs. Rafe Foreman is in a league all his own.
Thank you very much for this update. I really appreciate all the
strength and support you provided to me with this. It is still
amazing to me how they operated and what this all turned into. I hope
to not ever have to deal with these kind of people again, but if I
even sense something close will seek your legal assistance from the
I have no doubt that had I worked with you from the beginning, none of
this would have happened and even if I had still ended up losing my
farm to them, it would have been a planned process with respect rather
than the trama that occured.
Thank you for helping me handle the emotional stress of their threats
to my reputation and life...I had never had anyone treat me that way
before and I was blindsided by them. I am doing well with my new
promotion as well thanks to you, I followed through with the
application / interview and kept going with my life during all of
We live and learn...I have learned from this that sometimes you have
to proactively fight versus wait til a last resort while relying on
process to always promote fairness and for someone else to do what is
right...I have also learned that not all attorneys are the same...you
care more, work harder and have the talent to excel. I feel very
fortunate to have found you. If you don't mind I would like for you
to be my attorney for life, although I hope you will never have to
work on anything such as this for me ever again.
I think you are a tribute to your profession and to humanity...not
just for your victories...but for the way you steward your power and
heart in your work and your life.
Rafe and his partners Susan and Kern are without a doubt the most professional and outstanding attorneys I have ever been around or worked with. Combined they have the tenacity and are willing to put in the hard work necessary to be successful for their clients. Additionally, they are completely supportive and honest with their clients. Rafe and his partners are exactly what attorneys are supposed to be and I am glad to call them not only our attorneys but also friends.
My Favorite thing about Rafe is that his approach involves taking an aggressive stand when necessary. BUT>>>At the same time, he understands the value of resolving matters amicably if possible. To that end, he often uses alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, in an attempt to negotiate a fair and equitable settlement for his clients.
Rafe understands that during the legal process, you will be faced with numerous choices and options. He firmly believes that open communication with his clients is crucial in order to achieve the best possible results. As your attorney, he will keep you informed to help you understand the potential consequences of any choice or legal action. TOGETHER, he will work with YOU to reach decisions designed to achieve the best possible outcome under the circumstances of your case. Rafe will use his education and experience to provide the highest quality, most creative, and strongest representation possible.
