Attorney Jordan Foster has no time to fiddle around. He fights for justice cleanly. He doesn't draw your case out, nor will he let them . Jordan gets to the heart of the issue with nothing undiscovered. He went above and beyond for me as my ex left me for an attorney and it was very personal. This attorney stands in front of you, beside you, and has your 6. Hiring him was a god send to me. I've had several attorneys on both sides of the states in civil and federal court. I've only dreamt of such representation that Attorney Jordan Foster and his well known constituents provide. The winning kind. Thank you Jordan Foster for winning a horrid injustice.

helpful
I talked to over 12 different lawyers on the phone before hiring Jordan. I knew at the beginning that he was the best fit for me. He did not pressure me at all and explained the process clearly. I could tell he would help me with integrity and respected the fact that he was the only one of the 12 that didn't bad mouth the prosecutors in the courthouse. He listened to what I wanted and supported that decision. I didn't feel pressure to make a decision at any time. Thanks Jordan!

Glad I could help get this case dismissed for you.

Ecellent Service
Excellent Service. Jordan Foster was able to get son's speeding ticket dismissed without requiring my son to appear in court. Since my son goes to Pittsburgh for his college, this was very helpful. We just sent him the ticket and his payment and got the dismissal in email a few weeks later.

Dismissed my speedy ticket near Mt. Rainier
Jordan handled my case of a speedy ticket near Mt. Rainier. It was my first time consulting a lawyer and I was stressed. I contacted Jordan via email and phone calls. He was easy going, gave me instructions, and took care of all the court hearing. The process was very smooth and my ticket was finally dismissed (due to some luck).

Great job
Jordan was thorough and professional. He gave me a frank assessment of my case with no drama, then handled everything from there. Most important, he won my case. Would definitely use him again.

Highly recommended! Outstanding job!
Highly recommended! Jordan did an outstanding job handling my speeding ticket reducing it to non-moving violation. Jordan agreed to take the case on extremely short notice (i had only 1 day to file the dispute) and despite the fact that the infraction was in Mason county, not a typical area that Jordan handles. Very happy with his work!

Jordan Foster
Jordan took on my case, while I lived and worked far away, over 100 miles away. He made it a easy for me since I was so far away. He was always accessible to contact and follow up with. I felt that he was able to see how I needed help and was able to fight to get my resolution. I'm very grateful that Jordan took my case and was able to help.

Professional, efficient, and results-driven
Mr. Jordan Foster is an incredible lawyer! Exceeded every expectation I had for a lawyer. He is willing to answer any questions you may have. Very knowledgeable of the law and helped me get the best possible outcome for my case. I was originally arrested for a DUI and with his amazing help I walked away with reckless driving and minor fines.. I would highly recommend MR. foster for anyone that has any legal matter. He is the best! Thank you for everything you have done.

honest with result.
I hired jordan a year ago. I was prosecuted with a dui. It got dropped to neg driving because of his awesome represention. With community service i only paid 184 dollars as a fine.. I wasnt bothered by community service even though my hours are done i still volunteer at the kacaw rescue. Walked me through and was honest. And believed he gave 100 percent to me case. If you want a legend hire jordan.

Thank God for Jordan Foster!
My experience with Jordan was great. If I ever had any other legal issues in the future I would come back to him! He got me exactly what I was asking for from the courts when all others said I wouldn't have a chance! He was always professional, knowledgeable, and guided me through the entire process. Not once did I ever feel judged by him, and he cared a great deal about the outcome of my legal matter. He was always super easy to get in touch with whenever I needed him. I would highly recommend Jordan to anyone looking for representation. He will do his absolute best to help you with your needs.

A man I didn't want to meet, but glad I did.
After my entire life of being a clean-cut, law-abiding citizen, I unfortunately found myself in some legal woes facing a federal criminal charge. After "shopping" around, I picked Jordan to legally represent me. From the first meeting he was professional, cordial, informative, pragmatic, and most importantly, I did not feel pressured to hire him or sign paperwork as I did with many other attorneys. He understood that I was going through a difficult situation, and was confident he could get a better outcome than the charge I was facing. As the months went on (my situation was relatively drawn out), every time I had a question he would either have an answer or get me one promptly. Any phone calls/messages, emails, etc were responded to in a timely, professional manner. My case was pretty cut-and-dried, and there was not much to negotiate. In the courtroom, although I was very nervous, he made me feel at ease and explained every part of the process so there were no surprises. In the end, although it wasn't the exact outcome I had envisioned- he was able to negotiate an outcome that will eventually leave me with a clean record and that's really all that matters.

Thorough, thoughtful, and professional !
I have nothing but the highest praise for Jordan Foster, Daryl Graves, and the staff at Daryl Graves Law. Jordan handled my case which involved hit and run attended vehicle x2 and negligent driving, which to me were very serious, and by definition, criminal traffic charges. Jordan really put me at ease at the initial consultation as he made certain that I fully understood the process, timeline, and expectations. He kept me informed of the progress on his dealings with insurance companies, the affected parties, the prosecutor, and he specifically spelled out to me what I needed to do on my end to help him put together the most comprehensive and advantageous package for my defense. In summary, my confidence in Jordan Foster and the team at Daryl Graves Law was reinforced at each step along the way in dealing regarding this matter. This kept me at ease emotionally, as I knew Jordan was doing the heavy lifting behind the scenes and would leave nothing to chance. The ultimate resolution to this matter was very much in my favor, as I received a traffic infraction with all criminal charges dropped. I know that this was not a random result, but only due to the exemplary work of Jordan Foster and the team at Daryl Graves Law. They are truly pros!!! Excellent! Highly recommend!!

Great Exp
Recently I had an issue that led me to contact Jordan Foster. My experience was quite positive. Jordan was open, honest, direct and a good listener. He spoke to me in plain language rather than legal jargon, which put me at ease. He responded quickly and without hesitation when referring to specific laws, showing me he was well versed and confident. With a combination of excellent interpersonal skills and detailed knowledge Jordan left me with a great impression. In fact, I was so impressed with Jordan that I took it upon myself to share my thoughts and his contact information with others in a similar situation.

IMPRESSIVE, COMPASSIONATE & RESPONSIVE
I found Attorney Foster here on AVVO after reviewing the site for information related to my legal issue. Attorney Foster had posted a response to a post left by another visitor to AVVO. After being impressed by his response, I decided to contact Attorney Foster via the AVVO system. Attorney Foster responded to my e-mail literally within hours! After our initial e-mail exchange, Attorney Foster continued working with me by answering my questions and being compassionate until I could grasps what my legal alternatives were. Attorney Foster NEVER attempted to pressure me into retaining him; he did not cut me off pending the payment of fees for consultation, nor were fees mentioned until he had answered my questions and I had decided to retain him for his services. Attorney Foster impressed me with his compassion, his understanding and his willingness to patiently assist me in understanding my legal rights. I could not ask for a better representative of what a lawyer should be! Thank you Attorney Foster!
