Pat’s large corporation background and post-graduate business education makes her an astute counselor for complex business transactions. She understands the 'why' as well as the 'how' of getting things done. She is also tireless in her attention to details and engagement follow-up. I would recommend her without reservation for corporate, contract, business and real estate matters.

We were involved in a construction contract dispute involving an unlicensed, underqualified, unresponsive and untrustworthy contractor who, among other things, filed a frivalous lien on our project. Fortunately for us, we retained Ms. Foster to handle this situation. She immediately communicated with the contractor's attorney and within weeks the lien was removed and the matter resolved in our favor. Ms. Foster was knowedgeable, aggressive, responsive and properly focused on our case. We would highly recommend her for her great work and results and would not hesitate to use her again if the need arises.
