On january 7th 2014 i was leaving a crossfit gym in pompano beach and bumped a parked car that was too close to my truck, the crossfit class was finishing up there W.O.D (workout of the day) outside in the rear of the gym. I straightened my truck out and proceeded to drive to the back of the building to inform the owner of the vehicle when i was pulled over by a police officer that was parked across the street doing surveilance work. He didn't believe i was looking for the owner and made me get out of my truck and locked me in the back of his police car while he did his investigation, after waiting for a long time in the back of the police car i was asked to get out by a DUI investigator. The officer was the biggest jerk i had ever met in my life, i told him i had 2 drinks with some co workers after work around 4 o'clock, it was now 830 at night. He asked me if i would be willing to do a roadside sobriety test, after performing a pretty much perfect test he still arrested me for DUI and leaving the scene. I refused the breathalizer and i spent the night in broward county jail and was released in the morning. As soon as i was released i turned on my phone and started searching for dui lawyers, i googled top dui attorneys in broward county and Roger P Foley popped up every time. I called Mr. Foley that afternoon and was sitting in his office the next day. My first impression of Roger was this guy means buisness, he's tall, well dressed and talks with authority, he knew DUI laws inside out. I thought to myself, if i wanted a chance to get out of this situation, this was the guy i needed on my side. We discussed his fees, and he was nice enough to work out an easy payment plan for me. Before i left his office i asked him how long would this case take from beginning to end? he said about 12 months. Mr Foley got right to business, he ordered my DUI video, police report and a copy of the radio conversations with the aressting officers. After getting a depostion from the officers he scheduled a meeting for me and him to sit down and discuss a strategy for my case. We discussed all the factors and reviewed my dui video and agreed that this was a case that needed to taken to trial. Days before my trial date Mr Foley contacted the district attorney and asked her to review my case and video, after looking it over she offered me a plea, part of the plea barging included probation. I asked Roger if he thought i should take the plea, and he said you have a strong case, if it was me i wouldn't. After another couple weeks of negotiating back and forth with the district attorney and her supervisor, i was sitting in a courtroom with a motion to supress. When Mr Foley speaks on your behalf he amediatley takes control of the court room, i could tell he really intimedated the arresting officers. After 3 long hours in the court room i was denied my motion to supress evidence. Mr Foley insisted that my trial be reset and he be given time to find a case that mirrored mine where that case was won. 3 weeks later i was back in the court room, the district attorney knew Mr Foley had a strong case, so i was offered another plea. I was originally charged with a DUI, leaving the scene, and improper backing. I accepted a plea of reckless driving with adjudication with held, leaving the scene with adjudication with held, and my improper backing fine just disappeared. I received no jail time, no probation, no suspension on my license, i just received court costs.Mr Foley and i agreed that this was a win! He said i haven't seen a plea offered to anyone with a dui case that was so lenient in 10 years. My case was over in only 10 months. I know i made the right decision in hiring Roger P Foley as my dui attorney, i would recommend him to anyone with a criminal or misdemeanor case.

I ws placed on probation since 2009 and have been good. I work in Miami and one night i was driving and was pulled over by police. When they checked my id they pulled me out of the car at gunpoint and made me get on the ground. They searched my car and found a cigar and arrested me for possession of cannabis, resisting arrest because i kept saying to test it because it was not weed, and disobeying an officer. He said your not the type of guy that smokes a cigar thats why he did not tyest it. Eventually it was tested and it was what i said. This caused me to be violated broward cases. One of three charges stayed but state dropped weed and resisting charges. My broward probation officer was not told because i was scared because i was not suppossed to be in Miami. When he found out he told me he was violating me. He told my mom that i was sneaky and he would run away. I then found lawyer Roger P Foley because this probation officer would try to have me put in prison. In speaking to mr. Foley he was confident and Icfelt like he knew what he was talking about. The other lawyers i met did not do that. My mom says that it was his voice of confidence. He said he would treat me like brother and no lawyer ever said something like that to me. I kept calling him over and over- they kept saying relax they would take care of it and not to worry. I was skepticle but on the day Mr. Roger P. Foley went in and did his thing and knocked down. Convinced the judge and the state to reinstate my probation and give me a curfew and drug tests. Even though this was adult court because im 27 it allowed the judge and state to work with me because my probation officer gave me 12 violations and i think he wanted me to do life in prison :) I could only be given 10 years but this probation officer does not like me. When in court Mr. Foley not only got it reinstated i can now travel for any purpose in the tricounty area. I definitely recommend Lawyer foley because he his honest, aggresssive, and strong in court.
I violated probation by cathching a new charge for Burglary. I did not find Foley but my bf did. When I was arrested and sitting in jail he was looking for a good lawyer and a good lawyer fast. I asked him how his previous cases went, how many cases he had, and what school he went to because I was in custody and needed to get out fast. I was facing 20 years plus the new charges. I needed someone to understand my previous charge with the new charge and be able to represent me properly. I did not want someone to just plea bargain me. Foley filed a motion to set bond on my vop. The morning of the hearing Mr. Foley had a medical issue but still showed up - a lot of attorneys will send one of their friends who is not that qualified to represent you for that time being but he did not do that. The judge wanted to extend/ postpone hearing for another week and Mr. Foley convinced her to do it in two days. When we went to court he got me the bond on VOP which is very rare- even the judge said it. From there I was always in constant contact with him. He never gave me any excuses or any runaround like other attorneys. I hired him on both cases. He worked with me on the costs of both cases. Foley immediately filed a motion to suppress and went to court. We worked out a deal with the state where the burglary was changed to a tresspass and no probation and reinstated me on adminstative probation for my previous felony case. My case was resolved that day without any prolonging of the case. Honestly, I would highl;y recommend this guy. He is very confident in the law- he knows the law.. He never let me feel like I was in the dark. He explained every new detail in the case and kept me updated. Money well spent
