Rachel, and her associates - Barb, Felicia, and Pat offer personalized service beyond all expectations, a powerful winning combination, for anyone sincerely seeking professional, knowledgeable, competent and caring help with bankruptcy. I have found in Foley Law the most able and sensitive gentlewomen filled with Christian virtues with an abundance of empathy, kindness, and compassion and the willingness to go to any lengths to give service which eases the suffering and pain of others. Rachel, Barb, Felicia, and Pat each one uniquely has an Angel Heart and acts accordingly.
Rachel Foley was a "God-Send" for me. As I searched the internet listings for an Independence, MO attorney, I believe that God directed me to her name, caused me to feel a sense of goodness and rightness about her firm, Foley Law, and further, that God gave me the courage to face my feelings of unworthiness, overcome my fears and actually contact her. I will always be thankful that I did and that she was willing to take my case.
My initial discussion with Rachel was such a great comfort. I was deeply moved and touched when she shared that her practice was her Christian ministry and she greatly eased my feelings of despair by opening her Bible in front of me and reading Deuteronomy 15: 1 "At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. 2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release."
I am grateful for Rachel's kindness and sensitivity, her professionalism, her diligence and attention to detail, and her willingness to guide me and be there with me through the resolving of my financial need. Most of all I am grateful that Rachel ministered to me as the sick and hurting human being I was. I believe that God used her to bless me and do for me what I could never do for myself.
Thank You Rachel, Barb, Felicia, and Pat for all your kindness, from the bottom of my heart. I pray that God will especially bless you and keep you always!

I believe Rachel Foley cared about me and my situation and I never once felt like I was just "another client". Rachel took the time to understand all aspects of my businesses and guided me every step of the way. I am grateful for her and the team at Foley Law--from the initial intake/qualifying phone conversation through to discharge, I felt professionally supported throughout the process. Rachel gave me the confidence to believe in myself again and I highly recommend Rachel Foley and her firm.

Rachel and her associates were very professional and funny at times which helped get through the entire process. They helped you realize that we all make mistakes and are in need of a new start, a do-over, in life and they were there to make it easy and feel less demeaning. The prep process, including the budget class, takes some work but it also helps you realize you need a budget (if you don't have one) that helps with money management to get your finances in a better place and not end up being back where you were with creditors. Rachel goes over everything from top to bottom and helps you to understand exactly what is going on, what is going to happen, and what the results are going to be. All of the ladies were very thorough with the paperwork and spoke to you in clear terms to where you can totally understand your bankruptcy process. I can't thank Rachel enough for taking me as a client and helping me through the toughest time of my life where you just don't know what your going to do. Fowley Law will help you get to where you need to be!

Rachel is one of the best known speakers nationally for attorney conferences focusing on bankruptcy legal issues. She not only understands the law but has a unique skill for communicating her knowledge to other lawyers. It is for good reason she is highly sought after as a speaker.

Rachel is an active lecturer on consumer bankruptcy issues, and I have the good fortune of soliciting her opinion on complex matters involving bankruptcy. She is always willing to share her unique insight and ideas with me.
