Facing criminal charges is a battle -- for your rights, your freedom, and your dignity. As in any battle, you’ll need an effective strategy, tailored to your specific circumstances. Attorney Foley will build a strong case on your facts and the law, study the evidence against you, seek out and present evidence that favors you, apply all available defenses and represent you forcefully in all phases of litigation.
Objectives in your defense can include:
• Getting the charges dismissed if you have been wrongfully accused;
• Reducing your criminal charge to a lesser offense (for example, reduce a felony to a misdemeanor);
• Lessen the severity of the punishment for the crime (through diversion programs or a withhold on adjudication);
• Reduce or eliminate jail time (via probation, for example); and/or
• Help you develop a sound defense trial strategy (if your case goes to trial).
Robert Foley's representation includes effective damage control and risk mitigation, and protection against heavy-handed charges, sentences and penalties. In criminal cases, waiting can have a high negative impact on results. The sooner you take action in defense against your charges, the higher the likelihood of success. Robert will get in front of your case, communicate with prosecutors immediately, and attack problems aggressively. If necessary, he may use investigators to develop unreported facts and seek out witnesses, employ experts to explore alternate theories, and conduct depositions to clarify allegations.
With Attorney Foley you’ll also get sound guidance, his availability, and honest and frequent communication. He will stand by you throughout the process and manage the issues to reduce your anxiety.
You’ll also face financial challenges as the result of the criminal charges. Fines, fees, and costs can be extremely high. Knowing this, Attorney Foley's fee is reasonable. He is always mindful that the issue you now face was not a planned expense.
There are plenty of lawyers out there. Choosing the right one, however, is not an easy task. This difficulty is compounded as it is one of the more important decisions you’ll ever make. Being arrested, regardless of the charges, can have life-long consequences.
Hiring the right lawyer is an important decision and should not be based on advertising alone. Contact Robert Foley for a free consultation. He’ll talk about your case, defenses and strategy.
