Worker's Comp Attorney - Best Ever
Siles and Foster, P.C. is the best worker’s compensation attorney office. This is the second time I have used Steve Foster to represent me in my worker’s compensation case. Unfortunately, I was reinjured at work and immediately knew that I would choose Siles and Foster Law Office to represent me again. From our first meeting, he explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings and got back to me quickly. His administrative staff, especially Tabitha, was always friendly and never made me feel like she was in a rush. She was knowledgeable and would find out the answers quickly if she was unsure. When you get injured, worker’s compensation can be a nightmare and be very confusing. The firm helped navigate the insurance company and get doctors that cared about my well-being. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney that is respectful and knows how to fight for his client, Steve Foster is the right choice. His legal representation restored my faith in the justice system. I highly recommend and will work with this law office again. Thanks, team! Dan H.

Fast and fair!
I've never had a lawyer before and so I was nervous on finding one. Well Mr. Foster did not disappoint. He explained things to me in a way I could understand and his fees were very fair. If I ever need legal counsel again in the future I'll be calling him back.

The best
I hired Mr. Foster and Ms. Siles to represent me in my workers' comp case. I had interviewed other attorneys and decided on their firm. They took the time to answer all of my questions. Their staff was also always happy to answer my calls. If you need an attorney for any reason, I highly recommend Mr. Foster and Ms. Siles.

Not an Employment/Labor Law Attorney!
I hired Mr Foster because he was (and as of right now still is) listed under employment attorneys. Upon being suspended for missing work on Dr approved leave and requesting his help filing a discrimination claim under California law and labor code 132a, he informed me he was "in over his head." and referred me to an associate who was not interested in my case.
