MICHAEL FOSTER and SIDNEY MENDLOVITZ met nearly FIFTEEN YEARS ago.  As fate would have it, the two of them would re-connect.  Michael began studying law in 2007, became a paralegal in 2008, then eventually became an attorney in 2013. Not long after, Sidney and Michael crossed paths again, and soon thereafter Sidney offered Michael to join him as a partner in the practice of law.  The law office of “MENDLOVITZ||FOSTER, Lawyers” began.

More than FIVE YEARS have passed since Michael joined forces with Sidney, and as grateful as ever, together they remain focused on client success and the honorable practice of law.  In 2021, they took their partnership, their joint experiences, and their vision of success for the future, and for their clients, to the next level.


The Future…is Now:


            With their established partnership more than five years strong, and the continued growth of the office, SIDNEY MENDLOVITZ and MICHAEL FOSTER envisioned a new identity that would grow with them, their partnership, and their continued goal of client success:  THE LAW OFFICE.


THE LAW OFFICE is here, as it always has been, and always will be.

A New Name. A New Look. A New Era.
