The Irrational Client! Criminal Defense Attorney Shares a Funny Story

Ranting on what I occasionally deal with at the office. Clients can sometimes be irrational. Client is charged with a crime. They insist they did not commit said crime. There is a legitimate argument that they did not do it. I believe them. The prosecutor offers them a sentence that they disagree with. They are not willing to accept the offer because they claim they are innocent. Understood and I agree. However, a trial is needed because its a question of fact. Tell the prosecutor I will accept this. I tell prosecutor and they say sorry that is my offer. I tell the client Ok I understand money is tight and I will make a rare exception and go to trial at no additional fee to you, however you have to pay your costs for depositions, etc. Mr. Foley why do I have to pay I did not do this crime? Because you dont want to go to jail and receive probation and because you are innocent. That requires more work but again I am drastically reducing your fee as a courtesy and to help. Well, I want a complete cost analysis of what you are spending money on. I want to see your work. I want to see ythe case law. I want to stick a probe up your ass and see whats going on and make sure you did not over charge me. Welcome to the life of a lawyer on a Friday. I fyou are rational and need someone to fight we are always available. Visit our website or call (561) 746-7076.

I was charged with Domestic Violence few years ago and I was referred to Roger Foley from a family member! Roger is a BULLDOG! He was great and very aggressive in helping me beat this bogus case. Case was dismissed! He was on top of everything until the end!! Thomas
My wife (Mother of Stepson) and I Hired Mr Foley to represent my stepson in a minor criminal case. We would highly recommend as it is obvious to us That Mr Foley Genuinely cares and wants to do the Best he can for you which he did for us. Also has a great rapport with all parties in the courtroom..... Steve
Roger P. Foley got me reinstated. Also he got my COS waived, and got me to still be terminated off of probation on my expected termination date. I feel very comfortable with the decision my lawyer made for me. Also I would refer him to anyone who has a criminal felony or misdemeanor case. Jamar
Roger is a very compassionate person, he truly cares about his clients. He helped me with my case and was there for me every step of the way even if it was just reassurance that I needed. I would recommend him to anyone, he is absolutely the best! Cassandra G.
I think your firm did a great job on 3 cases that were 28 years old. The results are better than expected. I truly appreciate the hard work that you and your firm put forth in obtaining the results that we did on this case. Jim
