Franklin "Foggy" Nelson is Matt Murdock's best friend and business partner, sharing with him the Nelson & Murdock law firm. He likes his job, but complains about Matt's choices. Such as only accepting to defend innocent people, which are almost every time poor, and pay the two lawyers with anything they can afford to, thus including cheese and other food, furniture and toys, which Foggy's office is full of. During an exclusive dinner, Foggy tried to put Nelson & Murdock in Wilson Fisk's list of lawyers, but Matt firmly refuses, declaring that he'll never defend guilty ones, to Foggy's disappointment.

He often takes a coffee with his partner, debating on everything, from work to urban legends, which Foggy loves. Matt usually mocks his friend because of his faith in the existence of alligators in the sewers. On one occasion, Foggy tries to put mayonnaise in Matt's coffee, but eventually the blind lawyer gives him his cup and Foggy ends up drinking it. When Elektra Natchios is killed, Foggy proves to be sensitive to his pal's grief and tries to make him cheer up.
