Law as a Family Tradition

Stephanie Foster, a solo practitioner, takes great care and pride in serving families in the community where she grew up. Stephanie Foster’s dream of having her own law office was nurtured as a child, when she eagerly volunteered in her father’s Arlington law firm. A prominent Arlington lawyer, her father, John B. Foster, always sparked a lively dinner conversation by challenging his three young daughters to solve legal dilemmas. The elder Foster and his wife, Barbara, instilled a love of the law, a passion for learning and a strong work ethic in their girls. As they were growing up, the Foster girls woke up at dawn to tend to horses and other animals on their Arlington farm before they went off to school where they excelled in their studies. All three became lawyers.

A graduate of Arlington’s Martin High School, Southern Methodist University in Dallas and St. Mary’s Law School in San Antonio, Stephanie Foster traveled and explored different areas of law. She began her practice 17 years ago. She maintains about 175 active cases each year. In her career, she has handled approximately 2,700 family law cases.

Named a “Top Attorney” by Fort Worth, Texas magazine in 2003 and 2008, Stephanie Foster works with other attorneys to promote collaborative divorces in Arlington, Fort Worth, Mansfield, Colleyville, Southlake, Hurst, Euless and Bedford. She is a member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas, the International Association of Collaborative Professionals, and the Collaborative Lawyers of Arlington and Mansfield.
