Michael Foster greatly exceeded my expectations. I could not have asked for better representation.
Having Michael Foster work for me was the most important decision I made in regards to my legal needs. His dedication to my case and concern for my well being went above and beyond my expectations. Mr. Foster was able to get the results I deserved. With
his legal services I was able to obtain $1.4 million in compensation for the wrongs committed against me, and this was done much sooner than I thought possible. Even after legal proceedings were finished he continued to assist me in matters I needed help with, though not obligated to do so. If legal counsel is needed I would recommend Michael Foster to anyone who has been wronged. You will not find better legal representation.
There are not enough superlatives to describe my experience with Michael Foster!
I presented Michael with a last minute decision to seek a settlement in a semi-truck accident which had occurred almost two years previously. He was out-of-state with his family when I first contacted him and yet he sprang into action and the case was
finalized in a very timely manner. He was quick to respond and keep me informed, explained everything in a clear and concise manner and always made me feel he had my best interests in mind. His legal acumen, professional demeanor and courteous manner were extremely assuring and appreciated. The resolution was more than satisfactory and I am pleased and honored to recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney.

Michael Foster is the 2018 Pro Bono Publico Award winner given by the Missouri Bar Association for outstanding character and pro bono commitment. Michael is also the 2018 Legal Champion given by Missouri Lawyers Weekly. He is a former shareholder at one of the biggest law firms in the country and resides in the Kansas City area with his wife Melissa and their two children.
Michael has a well-honed ability to see the big picture and quickly narrow options to a best possible solution. From growing up in a family of attorneys, this legal intuition comes to him naturally. His father was a noted Wyandotte County, Kansas, attorney for 40+ years, and his uncle is a district court judge in Johnson County, Kansas. Four other aunts and uncles are attorneys or former judges who have or are practicing in Kansas or Missouri. Michael grew up in the Kansas City area and is a former Division 1 college athlete and a Kansas City Star All-Metro Team selection in high school. This collective background has contributed to Michael’s unrelenting drive to compete and win.
As a former partner at one of the biggest laws firm in the country, Michael has successfully represented some of the most noteworthy national clients in their toughest legal battles, and recently won the largest jury verdict in United States history for a prisoner secondhand smoking case that led to a statewide ban on prisoner smoking.
Michael relishes time in the courtroom, and fights on behalf of local and regional plaintiffs who have experienced adverse situations due to liability, negligence or wrongdoing. He has been on both sides of the court and knows how the most aggressive defense firms approach cases. This insider’s knowledge enables Michael to craft winning legal strategies for his clients, whether their matters are large or small, in multiple types of litigation:
• Personal injury • Car Wrecks • Truck Accidents • Dog Bites • Motorcycle Accidents • Wrongful Death
A: Unfortunately, this is impossible to answer without reviewing your medical records and bills, the police report, etc. You may also have future medical issues that need to be addressed for which you should be compensated for. Again, every case is different and depends on a lot of different factors.
A: You can always sue for more but you may not collect on it. If you don't have any underinsured motorist coverage under your policy and the driver who is responsible for your injuries only has $25,000 of insurance, there's a good chance (there are a few exceptions to this in the event the insurance company screws something up) the insurance company will only be on the hook for $25,000.00.
