When Mr. Foster was only 12 years old he was run over by a truck while riding his bicycle on Thomasville Road. The driver of the truck was distracted and ran into the back of Mr. Foster's bicycle causing him to fracture his lower back and sustain significant abrasions over most of his body. This experience left Mr. Foster with a passion to help accident victims. He is committed to helping injured victims obtain the medical treatment and financial assistance they need to recover from their injuries and helping them try to put their lives back together.
Since graduating from law school in 1994, Mr. Foster has dedicated a significant portion of his practice to protecting the rights of injured victims against insurance companies and corporations that place profits over safety. For 20 years, he has represented injured victims in the areas of negligent or failed security, premise liability and serious car accidents. He has obtained the two largest premise liability monetary settlements with the City of Tallahassee. At the same time he helped ensure that the City corrected the dangerous conditions that caused serious injuries to its citizens.
Mr. Foster also works with the victims of violent crimes to obtain substantial monetary recoveries against apartment owners, who failed to provide adequate security for college students and other residents. His background in both civil and criminal litigation give him a unique perspective in handling serious negligent security claims.
-Negligent Security/inadequate security/failed security
-Premise Liability (trip and fall)
Mr. Foster also has extensive background in handling criminal defense for select clients including allegations of embezzlement/fraud, internet crimes, drug possession or trafficking charges plus both DUI misdemeanor and felony charges. Mr. Foster is passionate about defending the rights of college students at Florida State University, FAMU, and TCC who are accused of crimes to make sure that youthful mistakes do not permanently scar or prevent students from becoming productive members of our community. Mr. Foster also focuses on representing professionals ranging from doctors and lawyers to legislators to help ensure that wrongful criminal allegations do not become career ending.
