Family Complex Litigation & Collaborative Group

Attorney John Foster is one of Orlando’s top family law attorneys. His passion, mixed with his decades of experience, allows him to offer his clients service that is hard to compare. As president of Family Complex Litigation and Collaborative Group (FCLC Group), John works with a fierce dedication to serving every client. “Our clients are more than just clients. They are people who come to us for help, and we want to deliver on our promise that we are your lawyers from start to finish,” says John. 

Born and raised in the Orlando area, John has deep roots in his community. With more than 41 years of complex litigation experience, he is positioned to handle divorce and family law cases in the Orlando area and beyond. His practice now focuses exclusively on the resolution of complex divorce and family law cases, whether resolved through settlement, the litigation process and trial, mediation, the collaborative process, or the appellate process. In addition, John works with matters involving alimony, child support, custody, divorce, paternity, property division, and other marital and family-related issues. 

Before directing his focus exclusively to family law, John litigated numerous state and federal cases and appeals that put him in direct contact with sophisticated businesspersons, entrepreneurs, and general or corporate counsel responsible for litigation management. In many divorce and family law cases, the business entities with which a spouse is employed or involved may be added as parties or may become entangled in the discovery process. John’s background and experience place him in a unique position for remaining sensitive to the impact of divorce on his client’s business interests. 

John’s accomplishments have earned him recognition and honors over the years. He has achieved the highest AV rating by Martindale Hubbell, and he is ranked by Chambers USA. John has been named one of America’s Best Lawyers, as Florida Legal Elite for Marital and Family Law by Florida Trend, and has been named a Super Lawyer for 10 consecutive years. By invitation, John is a member of the National Advocates “Top 100.”

John is actively involved in the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association. He currently serves on the Family Law Section’s Executive Council and Legislation Committee and is a member of the Children’s Issues Committee and the Domestic Violence Committee. John also served as Chair of the Health & Wellness Committee of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association, a committee designed to promote the health and wellness of members who passionately serve Florida’s families in their family law matters. 

Another topic John is highly passionate about is recovery from addiction. After a long battle with addiction, his son finally found recovery. However, in 2013, a year and a half into his recovery, his son relapsed and fatally overdosed. John channels his passion for recovery by remaining involved in the recovery world. He is fortunate to be a founding member of Mind, Body & Soul Recovery Housing (“”), which owns and operates sober-living homes in the Orlando area. John is also a founder of The Mind, Body & Soul Surfing Club’s Recovery Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) entity that raises charitable donations for recovery from addiction through events like the annual Run for Recovery, which will be held in Orlando at Lake Baldwin on Saturday, November 5, 2022. 

“Addiction can affect anyone, no matter age, race, socioeconomic status, or location,” says John. “While death is the reality of addiction, life is the reality of recovery. Our goal is to give someone a chance and help them find life through recovery.”
