When my sister became critically ill I phoned my friend and financial advisor for guidance regarding her outdated trust. He immediately called John and explained my predicament to him. Though I had never met John before within days he met with my sister and I to update her trust. My sister has since passed and John has been guiding me in all aspects of closing out her trust/estate along with executing the necessary legal documents. I find John extremely knowledgeable regarding trusts and probate procedures explaining everything to me in a manner I can understand. In addition to his professional side John is a very caring and understanding person offering support when needed. His advice has been invaluable to me and I feel very fortunate to have him as my attorney. As my husband and I need to update our trust John will be our attorney of choice as he specializes in estate planning and we are confident that he will guide us in customizing our trust to our specific needs. I enjoy working with John and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an excellent estate planner. Thanks John.

I went to this lawyer to extricate me from a tangle caused by another attorney. He saw the issues & solved them within 15 minutes. I want to have this councilor in my side in any involving trusts, wills, estates & elder law.

Mr. Foster provided probate, guardianship and estate planning counsel for me. He offered knowledgeable and professional advice always remaining focused on the issue at hand and its best outcome. He encouraged compromise over confrontation. Emotions are all over the place during a time of family loss; I felt his advice was always practical and sound while remaining cognizant and sensitive to the nature of family complexities involved. I would certainly use Mr. Foster's services again.

John (who we know as "Del") Foster is a wonderful attorney and very caring person. He gives his clients great legal work with compassion and understanding. Although I have listed his primary area of practice as estate planning, he is excellent in all areas related to estates and trusts, including administration. I highly recommend Del to all clients.
