Top Notch First Class
Conor represented me in two separate cases, an employment issue and a car accident case. In both cases, he always kept me updated on the status of the case, and tried to minimize the impact on me that comes with filing a lawsuit. He was aggressive, caring, and knew the law. I would highly recommend Conor to anyone looking for an attorney to represent them in employment or car accident case

Honest, responsive and Amazing
Conor assisted me with an issue with my former employer, and definitely put me at ease with the entire ordeal. His guidance and quick responses allowed me to de-escalate a situation that could have gotten much worse. I highly recommend Conor for any Employee/Employer issues.

Professional and efficient
Mr. Foley was a complete professional. He prepared for my initial consultation by reviewing the documents I had emailed in beforehand. During our meeting he actively listened to my story and provided appropriate guidance long the way until I had complete resolution of my matter a few days later. All communications were handled quickly and I am grateful for his service. I would highly recommend him and the Gunter Firm.

Non compete agreement
I work in a competitive field where non compete and non solicitation agreements are the norm. The agreements are also very lengthy and full of legal language. I consulted Conor to help me navigate through this since I felt it was constricting my current or future options for other job opportunities. Conor had reviewed my contract prior to my appointment and was well prepared in laying out the information in a way that made me understand the information much better. He addressed every question I had and options I had available that include the positive and the negative. I will highly recommend Conor without reservation. Very impressive at what he does. Thank you.

One less thing to worry about....
We are a small business just getting started and we were suddenly faced with a "David and Goliath" scenario with a non-compete. We were not equipped mentally or financially to take on a major corporation that was simply trying to bully us. Conor was patient and was very thorough to understand all of the facts, and gave us great advice that was in our best interest. We are about to wrap it up favorably and are extremely grateful for the counsel we received in such a timely manor and such a fair fee. Thank you!

Extremely competent, great communication style, highly recommend
I have been working with Conor Foley for several months now. I initially contacted Conor to advise me concerning a dispute with a former employer. Conor gave me excellent legal advice in that situation and I was extremely pleased with how the situation was resolved. Since then, I have had Conor help and advise me for other things such as professional services contracts, independent contractor contracts, advice on hiring practices, background checks, and more. Conor is extremely competent and I feel that I can trust his advice 100%. What I like about working with Conor is his communication style. He is very good about responding to emails. He gives his advice in a very clear and direct manner that I find easy to understand. If any of my friends or family asked me to recommend a lawyer for their business needs, I would recommend Conor Foley with complete confidence.
