WPB Criminal Attorney Discusses a Lawyer, Judge, and Substantial Assistance

Criminal Defense attorney discussing his experience in court. Substantial assistance is another way of saying that a defendant "rats out" another person. They give up a bigger fish so to speak. This happens mostly when a defendant is facing a long prison sentence. They then offer to give up others, rat them out, so that they may receive a lower sentence. It happens. However, when it happens its supposed to be hush hush and not talked about in open. Well, the world is changing and some defense lawyer and some judge, not for me to say who, obviously did not get the memo. * This is not legal advice. This is my opinion. This is my rant. I have already forgotten the fools that I saw do this in a full courtroom. It is almost comedy. Unfortunately, its not and people can be seriously harmed when they offer substantial assistance. Think carefully before you help the government as you may be risking your life. That is an opinion. Check out the video. Visit our website.

It is always nice to hear your thoughts whether you agree or disagree.

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
