On July 14, 2005, Ismael Sturce, a resident of Staten Island, New York, was performing masonry work on a chimney during construction at a house in New Canaan, Connecticut, when he was suddenly caused to fall off the roof, holding onto the roof with his fingertips for a brief moment, before landing on the ground and resulting in his death. Suit was instituted against the general contractor and the project manager in Bridgeport Superior Court. The case settled for $1,000,000.00 following a lengthy mediation.

Client Reviews
Attorney Foley spent 8 long years as my lawyer, during that time he was my advocate, my friend, and above all an amazing lawyer. I wanted to write this review because in most cases lawyers are concerned with their payday, but not Michael Foley, though he was able to get me an amazing settlement, he became like part of my family, truly advocating for the best medical care during the long process. MIchael is an absolute Bulldog when it comes to protecting his clients, if you need someone in your corner, who won’t ever give up on your case, and actually listens to your needs, then look no further..

Michael Foley is awesome. I have now done three cases with him. He is still working on two. He is so good to my husband and I. We will always use him. We have known him since 2002 he is like family to us. Liz Boucher
