    Attorney Profile

    An attorney at Nicolet Law Office, S.C., John R. Foss divides his practice between workers’ compensation matters and Social Security Disability claims. He is based in the firm’s office in Hudson, Wisconsin, and he provides representation to people throughout the state.

    Mr. Foss majored in business law and finance at the University of St. Thomas’s Opus College of Business and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2008. He then enrolled at the University of St. Thomas School of Law, and while he was there, he served on the Journal of Law and Public Policy. In his last two years, he also took graduate business courses, and in 2012, he was awarded both a Juris Doctor and a Master of Business Administration.

    In his workers’ compensation practice, Mr. Foss assists people who have been injured on the job or who have contracted an occupational disease and who are now seeking their rightful benefits under their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance coverage. At the outset, he helps them with their claims, helping to ensure that they contain all necessary information and that they are filed on a timely basis. In the event that a claim is disputed or denied, Mr. Foss provides representation at subsequent appeals hearings.

    Social Security Disability benefits, conversely, are designed for people who are unable to return to work due to a physical or mental disability that is projected to last for at least 12 months or to result in death. Here as well, Mr. Foss provides representation to these clients through all phases of the claim application process. He has been admitted to practice in Wisconsin since 2012, and he has received a 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo.
