Alex Foster

About me

Alex Foster is a very experienced criminal trial attorney who has handled thousands of cases. He was a prosecutor in Montgomery County for nearly 20 years, rising to the level of Senior Assistant State's Attorney. He knows how the system works from both sides, and he knows how a prosecutor thinks, since he was a prosecutor himself for almost 20 years. Hiring a skilled and experienced defense attorney is a critical first step. Now that you have been charged with a crime, you need a former prosecutor to defend and protect you.  The Law Office of Alex Foster is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at: 301-609-0345.  The office is located conveniently across the street from the District Court in Rockville.  You can also contact us by email at: or visit our website.


In 2014, Alex was asked to write a chapter in a new publication, "A Cup of Coffee with 10 of the Top Criminal Defense Attorneys in the United States".  Now a best seller on, Alex is particularly proud of this latest accomplishment.  Go to his website for further details

    Alex was a legendary prosecutor for decades prior to entering the criminal defense world. Unbelievably, he has now converted into a legendary criminal defense attorney. He is awesome in court, knows all the judges and prosecutors, and truly fights for his clients. Really one of the best out there. Highest endorsement!!!
