Thank you Mr. Foster for excellent legal council!
I hired Mr. Foster to defend me in a probation violation case. Mr. Foster provided me with top-notch legal defense at a great rate. Mr. Foster was extremely patient with me and handled the case very efficently. The judge ended up terminating my probation and gave me a new start and I am very grateful to Mr. Foster, thank you and God bless!!

Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 25
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have both worked opposite Walter, and on the same side of the isle with Walter. I state in my place that I would much rather be on the same side of the isle with Walter. Walter is an incredibly brilliant orator, is always prepared, and remembers case law that is relevant from before his birth. In those occassions in which Walter and I have argued opposing positions, Walter has pushed his client's argument effectively and concisely, and forced me to push back with the same. Walter and I have had some epic arguments in Court, yet I would have a beer, or a glass of wine and a steak dinner with him anytime."
