Attorney Profile

Committed to serving others through the law, Regina Foley is a passionate advocate for victims of negligence. She has served as trial co-counsel in a variety of complex civil cases, including medical malpractice, product liability, trucking accidents and other forms of negligence. She has earned an exceptional track record in helping her clients. In fact, she is an AV Preeminent Peer Rated Attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, has been consistently selected to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list since 2011, and has been designated as one of the top fifty women attorneys in Pennsylvania since 2017. Early in her career, she was one of 30 attorneys recognized by the Legal Intelligencer and The Pennsylvania Law Weekly in the inaugural edition of “Lawyers on the Fast Track,” honoring both her legal skills and her community service.

Ms. Foley is committed to giving back to her profession. She is actively involved in the leadership of several organizations including the Philadelphia Bar Association where she is a past Chair of the Board of Governors, past Chair of Women in the Profession Committee, and the past Treasurer; the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association where she serves as a member of the Board of Directors; and the Pennsylvania Bar Association where she serves as a member of the House of Delegates. In 2020, she was appointed to serve on the Philadelphia Bar Association's Commission on Judicial Selection and Retention which evaluates judicial candidates to help voters make informed decisions. She is a frequent lecturer on a range of topics, including civil litigation, deposition techniques, evidence and work-life balance. 

Giving back and involvement in the community are also part of Ms. Foley’s fabric. She is a volunteer with the Support Center for Child Advocates, with whom she has continually maintained active cases for more than eighteen years. She was honored by the Support Center as a 2017 Distinguished Advocate for her pro bono efforts on behalf of abused and neglected children. Recognizing Ms. Foley’s exemplary pro bono work, the Judges of the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania have included Ms. Foley in their Pro Bono Roll of Honor. She was appointed to the Board of The Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network (PLAN) in 2019, a statewide consortium of independent legal aid programs which coordinates the delivery of civil legal assistance to Pennsylvanians who need it most. In 2020, she was elected Treasurer of PLAN. Beyond the legal community, she served for 17 years on the pastoral council of her church and has served and remains active with the Advisory Board of the Sisters of Saint Joseph Welcome Center focusing on the needs of the immigrant community in Philadelphia’s Kensington section
