Excellent Representation
After extensive due diligence to select an Attorney that would best represent my interest in a court of law; I scheduled three initial consultations with three different Attorneys. After my initial consultations, I selected Esq. Alex Foster. The results of my legal proceedings favorably exceeded my expectations. The favorable outcome was a result of Esq. Foster’s knowledge, background, and familiarity with the District Court of Maryland Prosecutor’s Office and Judges. Esq. Foster was personable, engaged, and aggressive in representing my interests.

Great Service
I was involved in some legal matters that could have serious consequences and effect my life drastically. When I was seeking legal advocacy Mr. Foster actually made me feel secure and showed me his concerns to see if my rights were violated and provide professional legal advice. His experience gave me comfort that I had proper representation to a legal system which im not all that familiar with. I never felt judged and he was very detailed with his legal defense plan. I was able to get a plea arrangement with the state of MD and manage to keep my driving privileges and was given opportunities to correct my mistakes. He's down earth gentleman and relates to some of the complexities that arise when your in legal trouble. He's extremely knowledgeable of criminal law. I've hired him multiple times and hasn't let me down. Highly recommendable lawyer.

Best Attorney - Highly Reccomended
I reached out to Alex about my situation and he quickly responded and resolved it. He has mastered the legal system from both sides and I really believe he can help solve any problem you ask him to help you with. He goes above and beyond to make sure you feel safe, secure and confident when you are in the courtroom, which makes a world of difference. Alex genuinely cares, and it's very clear he knows exactly how to handle legal issues. He also is extremely well connected. I highly recommend Alex; he knows how to take control of a situation and make sure you are protected.

Best lawyer in Montgomery County
My wife and I found ourselves in desperate need and required the best legal representation possible. I was extremely worried that a conviction or plea would ruin my future employment possibilities. Alex made sure I wasn't charged and I was able to file for immediate expungement. I found him to be extremely qualified and he went above and beyond to fight for me. He truly was a blessing for my family and to top it off he really is a nice guy. Procedurally he knew the best strategy and gave amazing council. I attained the best possible outcome with Alex and my life is back to normal. I can NOT overstate what an amazing lawayer he is.

Excellent lawyer
Alex was an incredible lawyer for my case. He is experienced and very knowledgeable of the law. At our first meeting he explained multiple strategies to getting my charges dropped and I was confident that he would. I just had my trail and he immediately was able to prevent them from prosecuting me. If I ever need another lawyer I know who to hire.

End of a Nightmare
I originally was pulled over for a missing third tail light. I have health issues that were not acknowledged and cruelly ignored (by the police officer) at the time of my traffic stop and arrest. During trial, Mr. Foster questioned the police officer in a respectful, non aggressive manner. The officer turned red, appeared anxious and admitted that during my arrest, he did his job improperly. The judge acquitted 100% of my 8 charges. If mr. foster was not the confident, articulate, quick thinking lawyer I saw that day, right now I would be in jail. Mr. Foster went the extra mile, he brought my family back together, he made sure I sought out the additional medical help I needed, he made me feel like he was the person that was going to get me out of the nightmare I was in, and he did. I owe mr. Foster far more money than what he requested as his fee. I have my freedom back, thanks to my attorney and now someone I consider a friend, Mr. Alex Foster.

Best criminal defense lawyer
Alex Foster is one of the best crimanal defense lawyers I've had the pleasure of hiring him twice to help both criminal cases. He is very knowledgeable and follows through with what he says. I also like how he always kept me informed and explained everything so I could truly understand and know what's going on with my cases. He was able to see me in a timely manor. His work credentials are quite astounding. If you want a crimanal defense lawyer who has an amazing work background in Montgomery County who knows the court system and is confident in the court room he is the best. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a crimanal defense lawyer.

Knowledgeable and Connected
Alex is an extraordinary attorney. He is experienced, knowledgeable, well connected, and genuinely cares about the future and well being of his clients. His time spent as a prosecutor is evident in his expert knowledge of the court process, as well as the strategy and tactics of the prosecution. He is well connected and personally knows most, if not all, of the judges, lawyers, and law enforcement in Montgomery county. On the day of court Alex was able to move my case to a more favorable judge whom he had a personal relationship with and secured me a favorable verdict. I am extremely grateful for the help Alex has given me, and would strongly recommend him.

Alex is the best
Alex is an amazing lawyer where do I even begin? I have hired Alex for about 3 cases and he has resolved every single one of them. I do not have a criminal record they have all been dismissed and one PBJ which the probation term is over. In one of the cases I was even facing a felony on top of multiple other charges and there wad even video evidence against me. He used to work for the Montgomery County prosecutors office until 2010 and has alot of connections with judges and prosecutors, they all know and respect Alex which is really important when choosing a lawyer. He also has connections with alot of other very well known defense attorneys. On top of that, his prices are extremely fair and hr is willing to work with people on pricing or payment installments. And if that wasn't enough he just has an amazing personality and I think of him as a friend. I owe a lot to Alex, he was there for me during a dark time in my life and he has been a God-send. Please don't hesitate to hire Alex he will take care of you!

Former Top Prosecutor
Alex Foster is a former Senior Assistant State's Attorney for Montgomery County who worked in the State's Attorney's Office for 20 years. He has been a great defense attorney since 2008. He knows everyone. He is extremely talented in court. You can't find a more effective defense attorney in Rockville. Absolutely the best and did a great job having my case dismissed. Even the judge said he did a great job and the prosecutor called him "Alex" like they were friends! No other defense lawyer has his background, connections and skill. A 10 rating!
