About the Author

Judge Pamela Foust graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology in 1966, and earned her law degree from the University of West Los Angeles School of Law where she graduated cum laude in 1978. She was admitted to the Bar in the same year and practiced workers’ compensation law, mainly representing insurance carriers, but with some representation of applicants, until 1985 when she was appointed a Workers’ Compensation Judge. Judge Foust was originally assigned to the Los Angeles branch of the Division of Workers’ Compensation, and in 1987 transferred to the Santa Monica, now Marina Del Rey, Office. In December 2009, Judge Foust retired from the bench and is currently employed by Zenith Insurance Company. Judge Foust drafted amendments to certain Labor Code sections which were included in Senate Bill 31, enacted into law on April 3, 1993. She is also a contributing author of California Workers’ Compensation Practice, 4th Edition, 2009 update, published by the Continuing Education of the Bar. Judge Foust has written numerous articles on workers’ compensation issues, particularly those involving lien claims and other topics of interest to medical providers. She has been a frequent speaker on educational programs. She has also served as an adjunct professor at the University of West Los Angeles School of Law. Judge Foust is the 2010 recipient of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the State Bar’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
