1st DUI
Got arrested and spent 4 nights in jail. (Ramsey Co) Was super worried about additional time jail time and exorbitant fines. Robert put my mind at ease and was able to get me a very good deal that i could live with. Great attorney with the demeanor that i needed to get my life back on track.

Great Law Firm
Robert Foley ( and Dan Kinsella) were very professional, prompt and so very understanding and NICE! They handled my case (which most would consider trivial) with just as much consideration as something big. They returned my calls so fast it surprised even me! I would highly recommend their skills and services to anyone seeking an Attorney. So refreshing to deal with such outstanding people in this field.
