About Us

For over a half-century, Jack Foley has been representing individuals and businesses in state and federal litigation involving a broad range of civil and commercial lawsuits and appeals. After graduating from St. Bede Academy in central Illinois, Jack majored in political science at Boston College where he obtained an undergraduate degree prior to securing his Juris Doctor from Northwestern University School of Law.

In addition to the Illinois bar, Jack has also been admitted to practice before the federal trial courts in the Northern Districts of both Illinois and Indiana as well as the federal court of appeals in the Seventh Circuit encompassing Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana. Jack is a member of the Tort and Insurance Practice Section and the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association. He has been very active in the Illinois State Bar Association, chairing committees on Alternative Dispute Resolution and Insurance Law. Jack is also a member of the Commercial Litigation and the Commercial Property Committees of the Chicago Bar Association.

Jack began his legal career in the City of Chicago Law Department assigned chiefly to defend police officers sued for alleged misconduct. After his eight years with the City, winning every jury trial assigned to him, Jack went into private practice, first with the firm Walsh, Case, Coale, Brown and Burke and then eventually with his own firm, doing primarily defense and coverage litigation for several nationally known insurance companies.

In 1999, Jack merged his firm with that of his long-time friend and colleague, George D. Maurides, to form Maurides & Foley LLC which eventually became Maurides Foley Tabangay & Turner LLC where Jack transitioned to commercial litigation concentrating in disputes involving businesses, contracts, construction, insurance coverage, real estate and zoning. After George unexpectedly passed away in 2023, Jack left the Maurides firm to form Law Office of Jack Foley, P.C.

Although Jack enjoys a “track record” of overwhelming success in both trials and appeals, he views his role as that of a problem solver for individuals and companies facing the unpleasant task of either bringing suit or defending a suit. He strives to achieve a favorable but, at the same time practical, outcome in the client’s best interest, always placing that interest above all else. Jack views his clients as his partners in that endeavor, keeping them fully informed as the case progresses.
