Outstanding
Tom Foley was referred to me by a family friend after I was hit by a car, from behind, while out cycling. Tom and his staff made the process as simple and stress free for me as I recovered from significant injuries. His paralegal, Nicole, kept me in the loop throughout - paperwork, waivers, insurance claims and case updates. Both Tom and Nicole were always available to answer questions and often took time out of their day to check in on how I was feeling physically. They are professional, honest and knowledgeable. Tom is a great negotiator as I received settlements that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Tom Foley and staff for your personal injury needs.

Amazing Firm and Lawyer!
I was recommended to Thomas by a co- worker after my car accident. Working with him and Nicole, the paralegal made a difficult situation so much better. They took care of everything for me from day one and I was extremely happy with my settlement. I couldn’t recommend them enough. You are not just a number to them. They care and they work hard for you!
