Mark T. Foti: Great attorney who is very honest and a true professional.
Will NEVER sell-out a client.
I know this fact when he represented me on false and fabricated charges by the Brighton, New York Police Department.

I received a speeding ticket on grand island. I contacted Mr. Foti who was able to get the ticket reduced to a parking violation without myself ever needing to return to the area for a court appearance. Even though Mr. Foti is constantly on the news defending some of the most high profile cases in western New York, he still spoke and explained everything to me as if I was his most important client. I would definitely recommend Mark Foti, esq to anyone I need of legal advice.

I was charged with a violation in Williamsville, NY, in 2013. The case was in Amherst Town Court. I never had to appear in court. My charge was reduced to a parking ticket with an unconditional discharge. I did not have to pay a fine. Everything was taken care of quick and easy!
