While primarily known for his expertise in personal injury and wrongful death cases, Foster is also an accomplished appellate attorney, that successfully overturned several death and non-death penalty cases throughout Pennsylvania. Foster utilized DNA evidence in the cases of Barry Laughman, and William Kelley, who had been wrongly convicted of separate homicide cases in Adams County in 1988 and in Dauphin County in 1990 respectively. Both men were freed thanks to Foster's hard work and unrelenting thirst for justice.
