As a lawyer with over 30 years’ experience, I have worked with hundreds of individuals facing myriad allegations of wrongdoing. I have observed firsthand the panic and trauma one feels upon finding himself or herself the target of a criminal investigation or the filing of formal criminal charges. At times like these, it is vital to seek out an attorney, actually a legal team, to aggressively and skillfully investigate and confront the allegations on behalf of the client.
On those occasions where a criminal indictment or information has not yet been filed, quick and effective action on behalf of the client can, and frequently does, make the difference as to whether formal charges are actually filed. On those occasions when an indictment or information has already been brought, that same level of investigative and legal effort must be applied in an effort to win the case at trial or resolve it in the most favorable way possible.
When I formed the Todd Foster Law Group, my goal was to assemble a skilled and experienced team to assist our clients in these scenarios. We work with, in my view, the finest investigators who possess decades of FBI, U.S. Treasury and other fraud and financial investigative experience. I know of no lawyers more committed to clients than those on our staff. The combination of these two forces is a powerful tool brought to bear on behalf of our clients.
I began working as a private attorney 25 years ago after more than 12 years with the U.S. Department of Justice, first as an FBI Special Agent and then as an Assistant United States Attorney and Supervisory Assistant United States Attorney. My government experience provides me with invaluable insight into government investigations and prosecutions. Few attorneys bring the background and experience I do to the representation of clients.
Since entering into the private practice of law, I have been recognized by Best Lawyers In America, Florida Super Lawyers and been awarded an AV (highest) rating by Martindale Hubble. I was flattered to be asked and served two terms (six years) on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACOL), most recently during that service as co-chair of NACDL’s White Collar Crime Committee. I also served as an adjunct law school professor of trial advocacy and am a frequent lecturer to lawyers around the country on topics including defense of fraud actions, exposing government misconduct, cross examination of witnesses, and tactical application in trial settings of the Rules of Evidence.
In the past few years, I have been asked and have participated in large scale civil fraud cases, mostly involving violations of the RICO and conspiracy laws. My continuing experience and knowledge of these areas in the criminal arena translates well into the civil fraud arena, where I can put my knowledge and experience to work on behalf of civil clients as well.
My vow is that we will treat your case the same way we would want our case or the case of one of our loved one’s handled-with commitment, competence and an untiring work ethic.
We hope you will call us if we may be of assistance.
