What do Attorneys Need? Praying, Paying and not Hovering

Communication and honesty are important in representing clients. Clients want the best representation they can acquire. Clients want an attorney who will fight their battles and do everything legally possible to win.What does an attorney want in return? For my sanity, and longevity as a criminal defense attorney, I must be completely honest with my prospective clients, and not politically correct. I want clients to believe in me, pray for me, pay me, and not hover over my shoulder. Time is what an attorney sells. I am not paid by the hour. My fees are based upon an estimate of what it will take to effectively defend my client. I take a case as a flat fee. My time needs to be spent defending the case, gathering information, doing research, and not answering "what if," "Law & Order had a case where...," and "what kind of Judge is hearing my case?" questions.Civil attorneys will talk to you all day because they are billing for every minute. I want to succeed and acquire the best result not speculate on the case. Hypotheticals and "what if questions" help nobody. IF you are a potential client that desires such rhetoric then the following may be applicable: Some potential clients may wish to seek other counsel.

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
