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.S. B.
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.
