What Our Clients Are Saying

From my first initial call to The Law Offices of Erica M. Foster, then my consultation before our first appearance in court, it was nothing short of a complete and utterly professional experience. Right from the start Attorney Foster showed great confidence when I was in a place where I felt unsure of everything. I had a situation that was of a time sensitive matter and Attorney Foster made my family and I feel as though we were her only clients. Attorney foster helped my family gain custody of our grandchildren while addressing all of our grandchildren’s needs in the meanwhile by coordinating agreements as needed for each situation that developed, which were fair and practical for all parties involved. This made very stressful situations less stressful and we able to focus on what was important which was the care of our grandchildren. As time went on I realized I had someone on my side who was giving so much dedication, commitment and support to all of our family’s needs and that started to make me feel invincible instead of vulnerable. Together Attorney Erica Foster and I spent years overcoming the many obstacles that my family and I had to endure to finally achieve what we set out to accomplish in the first place. The fees we paid were very reasonable for the amount of happiness and comfort she successfully brought to my family. The firm is and was conveniently located and accessible from all areas which made it very easy and comfortable each time we visited. Today I am very happy and proud to say Attorney Erica Foster feels more like a friend of the family. Attorney Erica Foster is one of the best! I highly recommend her firm to anyone in need of her services. T. L.

Six months into a very difficult divorce, I sought new counsel and chose Erica Foster. From our first meeting I had every confidence that Erica was the lawyer I needed to handle the complexities of my case. Her knowledge and expertise of family law was evident both in and out of the courtroom. She is intelligent, honest, and extremely focused in her work. With many conflicts and issues throughout my divorce, Erica handled every situation with respect, integrity, and calm resolve. She kept me informed of all case related matters and responded immediately to any questions or concerns. In addition to Erica’s professionalism, I cannot say enough about how supportive she was through a very difficult time in my life. Erica listened and was sensitive to my needs. She was a true advocate for the safety and well-being of me and my four children. After two long years, I can honestly say I am in a much happier place and I owe that to Erica.  She exceeded all of my expectations in the divorce process, both as a lawyer and a person. I would highly recommend Erica Foster to anyone looking for a family law attorney. M. F.

Erica is a truly gifted attorney, she was a Godsend during my long and difficult divorce. She was extremely knowledgeable, highly skilled, very compassionate and always remained calm even though I was not. She was prompt and personally returned every one of my phone calls within a reasonable amount of time.

She was very thorough and eventually I walked away with a fair and equitable division of marital assets with protections for my future that surpassed my expectations.

Having experienced how great Erica did with my long challenging case, I would highly recommend her for any type of law related issues. N. C.

As a father, I couldn’t have been more happier with Erica’s legal work. I’ve used her services in 3 different cases – full custody battle, alimony termination and child support enforcement. I won them all ! She’s a great communicator, diligent at paperwork, efficient and reliable. Highly recommend! V. K.

I met Erica Foster as I was in the process of divorcing my husband who was also an attorney. She is compassionate, understanding and extremely smart. She was able to counter any tactic
he threw at us. Her counsel is invaluable. She combines her legal expertise with common sense, solving any difficult issue with poise and efficiency. When your fate is in another person’s hands it is easy to be stressed, but Erica Foster as my attorney put my mind at ease because I knew that she would truly do the best for me in such a difficult time. Where I was not strong, she was strong for the both of us. I had no doubt in my mind that she would get her job done, and the settlement she concluded in my case was precisely what I wanted. With patience, grace, and precision, she earned my trust over the past five years. I will continue to work with her as my own attorney. I highly recommend her. J. M.

When I was getting divorced I have used attorney Erica Foster to represent me. She is the only attorney that has put my case to the end. I had 2 attorneys I used, they only wanted my money and dragged my case forever. Their fee was extremely high. They don’t care about me. When I did a research I found attorney Foster and I used her to represent me. She finished my case at no time and her fee was very reasonable and she cares about me. I highly recommended her as an attorney. I would rated her as 5 stars.

My decision to move forward with my divorce was made after many years of an unhappy and unhealthy marriage.  With two boys, I was very concerned about their welfare and my chances of success filing for divorce in the state of Massachusetts.  I decided to wait until they were of an age (both in high school) where they could handle such an ordeal.  I interviewed many attorneys over a number of years, all of which told me my chances of being granted custody were slim to none, no matter how abusive my wife was to me and my children.

In the later part of 2010, I met with Erica Foster.  Although she could not guarantee I would be successful in obtaining custody of my children, she presented herself as an honest individual genuinely concerned about my situation.  After providing her with a detailed history of my wife’s abusive and violent behavior towards me (always in front of my children) over an extended period of time, Erica convinced me that now was the time to file for divorce.

On December 11, 2010 I filed my divorce papers.  Over the next thirteen months, I appeared in court fourteen times.  Erica guided me through every step of the process.  She kept me focused on what was important, and what had to be done.  When I allowed my emotions to cloud my judgement, she brought me back on track.  She made sure that my focus was about my children and their safety and welfare.  During my divorce pre-trial, I presented my case to the Judge as to my wife’s physical abuse towards me (always in front of the children) and was told I waited too long after such events to allow the court to evict her from the marital home.  I was forced to remain in the marital home with my wife for another seven months.  During that time, my wife made additional threats towards me (again, in front of the children).  With guidance from Erica, I brought these events to the attention of the Judge, whereby my wife was found in contempt of court and fined $3,000 for deliberately disobeying the Judges orders.

My actual divorce trial took place in October of 2011 over a two-day period.  Erica prepared me for this trial, keeping me focused on what was important, and making sure I presented all relevant facts to the Judge.  Although my extended family were supportive, it was Erica’s attention to details and unwavering compassion for the pain and suffering my children and I had gone through over many years that kept my focus on convincing the Judge and the court system that I was a fit parent and that my wife was most definitely not.

On December 10, 2012 Erica and I received notification from the Judge.  I was awarded physical custody of my children.  Their mother was found to be an unfit parent and was evicted from the marital home on December 31, 2011.  I was also allowed to buy out my wife’s interest in the marital home, allowing my children to continue living in the same house they were born in.

On January 1, 2012, I was reborn.

Without Erica’s professional expertise, unending compassion and belief in my version of events that took place over a ten-year period, I would have been unsuccessful in my quest to be awarded custody of my children in the state of Massachusetts (as so many other fathers have).  My family, friends and work associates all asked me the same question…” How did you gain custody of your children as a father in Massachusetts?”.  For me, the answer is…”my believe that I was in the right and that I hired Erica Foster as my attorney”.

Erica was, and is, a significant reason why I was able to put the past behind me.  I am currently remarried to the love of my life and have another son.  My family life is now full of joy.  Each day I am thankful for the opportunity to be happy again. S. D.
