Christian Foster believes that an open and honest working relationship between clients' and their lawyer is the cornerstone to achieving the best results in any legal case. Christian invests the time necessary to know his clients, to understand what is most important to them and to lay out an understandable path forward to achieve the desired outcome.

"We were very lucky to be represented by Christian Foster. He was very dedicated to our son's medical malpractice/ wrongful death case. Christian was very diligent, answered all our questions, was always available, showed empathy and is genuine. We would most definitely recommend him as an experienced attorney." Andy  and Denise P.

Christian's dedicated approach has enabled him to help hundreds of clients and achieve seven figure verdicts and settlements in personal injury, professional negligence, products liability, and complex business disputes.

Christian became a member of the Bar of the State of Maine, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, United States First Circuit Court of Appeals and District Court for the District of Maine shortly after graduating with honors from the University of  Maine School of Law in 2000. Upon graduation, he transitioned from a law clerk to full time attorney in a dynamic and successful civil and criminal trial firm in Portland Maine. He is an active member in the Maine State Bar and Trial Lawyers Associations and was selected by his peers to be member of the Edward Thaxter Gignoux Inn of Courts. Christian has presented on the topics of Civil Rights suits and the appellate process at the University of Maine School of Law and Maine State Bar Association. The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys selected Attorney Foster in its 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys for outstanding and exceptional client service within the State of Maine.
