I would recommend Mark Foster to anyone who is hoping to get the best possible resolution to a pending criminal charge. Throughout the process of representing me, he was thoughtful, professional, and highly responsive to my many questions and concerns. He built my trust and confidence without sugar-coating the situation. He was straightforward about my options, including positive as well as potentially negative outcomes. He was also sensitive to the professional and reputational damage that can be caused by a criminal conviction. Throughout the process, I knew Mark was looking out for my best interests, and he was able to draw on his deep experience in successfully navigating the complex court system and legal process.
The legal charge against me could have been permanently devastating. Thanks to Mark, I've been able to move forward with minimal damage, and my personal life and professional career are back on track.

Mark Foster is one of the best, if not the best, criminal defense attorney I have had the privilege to work with. I have observed first hand his zeal, dedication, and commitment to each and every client. He is the ONLY lawyer I know who has obtain 3 recent NOT GUILTY jury verdicts in Federal jury trials. Yes THREE NOT GUILTY VERDICTS. His commitment to hard work is unmatched. He has a vast amount of skill, knowledge, and experience in both State and Federal Courts. I unhesitatingly recommend Mark for any type of criminal case.

Mr. Foster actually listened to my suggestions on how I wanted to proceed with my case. He also did not judge me for my charges. I was treated with respect and I felt comfortable in placing my trust in both himself and other lawyers in his firm. I Never had trouble in getting in touch with him or his assistant.
