Divorce and Happily Free
Foster Law Firm , where do I start despite being a stressful time in my life being married for 16 years and during the last year dealing with my divorce I am very please with the outcome of my divorce. Lawyer Foster , I meet during my consultation she was awesome, very transparent and was willing to represent me during my divorce process. I had the pleasure of Lawyer Watkins, from the Foster Law Firm whenever I spoke to her I felt important, I felt heard and most of all I felt my case was important to them. Thank you so much Foster Law Firm

Client
AMAZING, PROFESSIONAL is how I will describe Attorney Foster and her team. They exceeded my expectations. Any questions or concerns I had they made sure to resolve them. They made sure I received what I was entitled to as I was going through a contested divorce. A heavy burden was lifted off of my shoulders when I hired Attorney Foster to represent me in my divorce case. She definitely knows what she is doing and is the “GOAT”.

Foster Law Firm is the best for your legal needs.
Attorney Foster and staff were very detail oriented and throughly went over the facts of my case. Attorney Foster worked diligently on my case and had several charges dropped and got me a plea for the one charge. The staff was always professional and communicated with me on a regular basis about my case.

Top notch representation
My experience with this firm was better than I could have ever expected. The lawyers at this firm are responsive, compasdionate, and knowledgeable. I was blown away by the quality of representation, within the court room. It was clear that they are in a class of their own and their professionalism and knowledge shined bright during court proceedings. I highly recommend this firm.

Knowledgeable Professional Teamwork
Knowledgeable Professional Teamwork is the essence of The Foster Law Firm. They are dedicated in working your case and helping you reach the desired outcome. The Staff is Friendly and courteous. I had the esteem pleasure of working with Attorney Coleman-Watkins, Sharon Moret, Jada Bounds, and Gena Hargrove. Ms. Moret worked step by step with me ensuring that all the “T’s” were crossed and “I’s” were dotted. Ms. Bounds coordination and emails kept me informed of all the meetings and appointments. There expertise is beyond compare. Attorney Coleman-Watkins counsel helped me to understand what my options were and helped me to make the best decision for me. She does not just tell you what you want to hear but gives you the legal understanding so that you can make an informed decision. I also had the pleasure to speak with Mr. Aundray Foster. He helped me to understand my invoices and was very helpful in ensuring that I was comfortable with everything that was done. I truly enjoyed working with this team and I would recommend them to anyone who needs legal representation.

I’m quite grateful for the referral to law firm
Attorney Foster is a pit bull in the courtroom. She’s very transparent with her clients. My son needed an attorney for violating his probation. Attorney Foster would return my calls personally and has even reached out to answer my questions after hours. When we went to court my son was released on bail and I had to pay $0.00. I pray that I never have to call her again but if an attorney is needed in the future for me or anyone that I know I would have to hire Attorney Foster again.

Excellent service from beginning to end. Mrs. Foster is very warm, down to earth and interested in you and your issues. She made me feel as if I was speaking to my closest sister. She is very knowledgeable in her practice.

Competent, professional, trustworthy, excellent!
I hired Attorney Foster and her team during the most difficult time of my life. From the moment she was retained, Ms. Foster sprung into action doing everything she and her team could do to effectively represent me. She was confident and straightforward, which is exactly what I needed when faced with uncertainty. I had no relationship with Attorney Foster when we started working together, but it immediately became apparent that she was well respected in the Atlanta legal community for her excellence as a practitioner. Her associate and supporting staff were always responsive and helpful when she was in court/unavailable. I’m the end I got a favorable result, which is always the goal. Beyond that, I know a team I can trust and refer my friends and family to moving forward.

Gold Star Service
I have no regrets for selecting Foster Law Firm to handle my crisis. Not once, did they make me feel as if I was bother for calling or emailing during the process. They explained the process in laymen’s terms and I truly appreciated the professionalism from every department.

Representation Well Done!!!
I would recommend this firm to anyone. Suggestion from the defense team was not like the usual take a plea or short time to get out of the situation. No, this team went in with, "We will fight for immunity, then a trial if needed". But guess what? No trial, no extra fees, IMMUNITY!!!! Praise God. They give you the confidence that they are covering every angle. The firm works with your financial challenges. I am grateful for all they have done for us. Thank you for not settling for probation, plea deal, or prosecution "takeover". Thank you. I have already recommended you to others.

Welcoming and Dedicated
We haven’t even started with a retainer fee yet, however I am beyond impressed from the initial phone call we made seeking information. All our questions were answered and I truly feel they have your best interest at heart. I appreciate that they listen instead of dominating the conversation.

Amazing Team at Foster Law Firm
Mrs. Foster and her team dedicated the necessary time in making sure that my case was handled properly. My personal situation with the courts was delicate because of how the charges was filed against me and the comfort knowing that I had a team of professionals that manage to seek the best possible outcome was superb. The communication from the beginning when these charges was brought against me to when the Defense Attorney finally decided to bring my case to light, I was always being informed. The dedication that Mrs. Foster herself delivered on behalf of myself, I’ll always be grateful and blessed to have found her to take over my case in my stressful time of need. I can finally move forward with my life from here on thanks to the Foster Law Firm.

Great business
Would recommend anyone to do business with this firm. I’m a single father of 3 and she was able to help me strategically get sole custody of them all. Now I can feel more secure in parenting my kids.

Professional, Prompt and Poised
Professional, prompt, and poised is how I would describe Chinwe Foster and everyone I worked with at her practice. I highly recommend her services, and her online library of legal information and definitions was really helpful for me prior to retaining her services. If you are considering Foster Law Firm, I say go ahead and commit!
