Todd Wachtel Selected as a Fellow to the National College of Workers' Compensation
| By Levinson Axelrod, P.A.
The CWCL was established to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their practice of workers' compensation law. These individuals have shown exceptional professionalism, character, integrity, and expertise in their field, as well as a commitment to fostering and furthering the objectives of the College. In order to be nominated, an individual must have a minimum of twenty years of experience representing plaintiffs, defendants, serving as judges, or working in education, oversight agencies, or legislation.
In addition to these qualifications, a Fellow of the CWCL is expected to demonstrate a number of traits in their daily practice, including professionalism, respect from their peers and the community, civility, an active interest in resolving issues, and a commitment to continued learning and participation in professional organizations. As part of the application process, recommendations were provided to the committee from Judges, Petitioner’s attorneys and Respondents’ attorneys. According to the CWCL website, there are currently only 5-other attorneys in the State of New Jersey, out of thousands, who have been selected for this honor.
Todd has been Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Worker’s Compensation Lawyer, and is a member of the State of New Jersey Bar Association Worker’s Compensation Executive Committee. A formal induction dinner is planned to be held in New York City in the Spring.
