    Attorney Profile

    Robert L. Foley built up a reputation for providing strong, reliable legal representation in a variety of legal issues before forming Norfolk-based Foley & Foley, P.C. Now focusing on family law, civil litigation and criminal defense, Mr. Foley represents clients in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth and Suffolk, Virginia. He is known throughout the area as an attorney who effectively combines aggressiveness and compassion to get the best results possible for clients.

    After graduating magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in history at Hampden-Sydney College, Mr. Foley attended law school at the College of William and Mary, where he earned his Juris Doctor. During this time, he gained experience as a law clerk for two law firms.

    Mr. Foley began his legal career handling domestic relations cases, and then expanded his experience to include products liability and transportation defense. His team is able to handle a wide variety of legal matters, including divorce, adoption, asset protection, wills and trusts, personal injury, medical malpractice, DUI/DWI and products liability.

    Foley & Foley, P.C., has been serving Virginia clients for over three years. Mr. Foley takes pride in giving each client personalized, one-on-one attention during each stage of the legal process, understanding that this can be a difficult and stressful time for clients and their families. He has extensive experience with courtroom litigation, but will work with clients and legal professionals to get matters resolved outside the courtroom whenever possible.

    When not working, Mr. Foley enjoys spending time with his large extended family, most of whom have lived in the area for generations.
