Today’s sponsor is The Foster Group, a new and unique law firm with offices in Arizona and Indiana. Founded by Troy and Kristen Foster, The Foster Group is staffed with exceptional lawyers with big firm experience who want to provide the individualized service and care of a boutique law firm. These lawyers are former partners at large national law firms, have worked for federal and state judges, and have represented large international companies.
Troy Foster’s career has focused on education and employment law. He has been named one of The Best Lawyers in America for many years. Troy has also received the highest ratings for ethical standards and substantive ability by his peers. Kristen Foster specializes in labor and employment law, trust and estates, education and special education law, family law, and media relations. One of her previous positions was an Assistant Attorney General for Arizona, where she represented Child Protective Services. Along with being on the Boards of Directors for numerous organizations, the Fosters recently founded Henry’s Hope, an organization that is dedicated to the needs of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
The core principles of The Foster Group are commitment, hard work, trust, and dedication. Their goal is to understand their clients’ needs and to provide them efficient and practical solutions to their problems. The Foster Group is focused on providing high-quality, cost-effective services and being attentive and responsive to their clients.
The Foster Group specializes in labor law, education law, family law, trusts and estates, civil rights, and transactional corporate and real estate law. It has a Human Resources Solutions Group that provides trainings, internal investigations, policy revisions, or high-level consultation work to companies. Recently, The Foster Group has offered trainings in Arizona regarding the recent legalization of medicinal marijuana and its effect on the workplace. It is also dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of individual who want to have their story heard in the news media, in print, or published in a book.
Troy Foster also offers his services as a mediator. He has experience mediating employment, civil, tort, legal and medical malpractice disputes. His thoughtful nature and compassionate heart make me an ideal person to help parties resolve their problems.
The Foster Group is a unique and desirable place to work. Unlike other firms that work their lawyers to death, The Foster Group only requires lawyers to bill 1600 hours per year. Other firms require their lawyers to bill 1850-2200 per year, which is one of the reasons why lawyers are rumored to be addicted to stimulants and have heart attacks when they are 40. The Foster Group also has a fun, event-driven bonus system, such as trips to Hawaii. Additionally, the firm plans to launch a Community Involvement Program where it will hire an attorney to work full-time on pro bono cases.
