Todd Wachtel, a partner at Levinson Axelrod’s Hillsborough office, was published as a contributing author in a new legal practice guide for New Jersey Workers' Compensation by Lexis/Nexis. A legal practice guide is a mix between a legal research book and a practical guide for lawyers. It is one of those items that many lawyers and Judges leave on their desks every day or carry with them to Court.
The book Todd helped write is the first of its kind for New Jersey Worker's Compensation attorneys, and is already proving very helpful. Todd's contribution included detailed information regarding the most serious types of Workers' Compensation cases - those involving total and permanent disability, which provide lifetime benefits to seriously injured workers. Further, Todd wrote on the highly technical process of obtaining Worker's Compensation benefits when an employer does not have Worker's Compensation insurance, as required by law.
We previously wrote about Todd’s contributions to the book before its publication, and are excited to see his work help fellow attorneys across the state. Back in July, he said:
“I am really excited to contribute to this book. There is nothing like it to help attorneys and Judges walk through some difficult issues. We tried to keep it as readable as we possibly could for a law book, which are typically pretty dry. I had never been part of a process like this, and it certainly was a challenge to get it all together. In the end, I am very proud of what we came up with and glad to know that the book will be helping out other attorneys in the future.”
