Last month, Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Partner Todd Wachtel was elected to the Executive Committee of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. Todd was installed in his new post on Friday, May 20, 2022 during the NJSBA Annual Meeting and Convention in Atlantic City.
As a member of the Workers’ Compensation Section Executive Committee, Todd will work closely with fellow members on various tasks critical to the practice of workers’ compensation in New Jersey, including reviewing proposals from the State Legislature for new workers’ compensation laws. Todd was the only Petitioner’s Attorney nominated this year to the committee, which includes attorneys from “both sides of the aisle” who bring their unique perspectives to reviewing potential new laws.
Todd’s appointment speaks volumes about the respect he’s cultivated among his colleagues and the reputation he’s earned as a skilled and knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney. His work as a Petitioner’s Attorney and experience as a former Deputy Attorney General who represented the State of New Jersey in workers’ compensation cases will aid him in helping the Committee evaluate potential new laws that impact the rights of workers.
Todd D. Wachtel is a New Jersey Supreme Court Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist and Partner at Levinson Axelrod, P.A. In his time representing claimants, Todd has helped injured workers and their families recover millions of dollars in benefits and compensation.
