Attorney Evan M. Foulke, Esq.
Evan M. Foulke, Esq. founded Foulke Law Firm in 1999 after serving 10 years as a trial litigator for two of the country’s leading law firms in New York City.
Evan has been successfully trying cases and representing clients in personal injury and discrimination cases for nearly 25 years. He has a long history of taking successful jury verdicts in state and federal courts in New York and New Jersey on behalf of his clients. Mr. Foulke has multiple verdicts in excess of $1 million. In 2015 the New York Law Journal named Mr. Foulke to the Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame in recognition of a series of successful jury verdicts in the New York City metropolitan area. In December 2017 Evan took the largest verdict ever recorded ($5,299,000 total judgment) against the State of New York on behalf of a client who tragically died after a fire at a State run facility.
The State of New York has hired Evan as special trial counsel to defend State employees wrongly accused of discrimination.
Mr. Foulke has written and argued numerous appeals in state and federal courts in New York and New Jersey including the First Department, Second Department, Third Departments, and Fourth Department in New York, the Appellate Division of New Jersey, as well as the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
Evan received a Bachelor of Arts Degree (cum laude) from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. In 1990 Mr. Foulke received a Juris Doctorate (cum laude) from Albany Law School where he served as Editor of the Albany Law Review and graduated as a member of the Justinian Honor Society for academic excellence.
From 1990 to 1995 Mr. Foulke practiced in the civil litigation department at Kelly Drye & Warren in New York City practicing exclusively civil trial litigation in state and federal courts across the country. Between 1995 and 1997 Evan worked in the civil litigation department at Reid & Priest LLP in defending corporate clients in a variety of cases in litigation.
Mr. Foulke is dedicated to providing the highest quality of ethical legal services that allow clients to feel confident that their interests are being honestly represented and protected under the firm’s sincere commitment to integrity. Mr. Foulke understands the sensitivity of many of his clients’ issues as well as the care and precision that must be applied in order to properly guide and maximize their recovery. While Mr. Foulke believes in minimizing harm and solving matters peacefully when possible, as a seasoned trial attorney he is well prepared to boldly assert his client’s interests in court when necessary to get justice.
When not in Court or the office, you can usually find Evan and his wife Nancy shuffling their five children between their baseball, basketball, soccer, and lacrosse games.
