    Todd Wachtel is one of the hardest working workers’ compensation attorneys in New Jersey. Todd is a certified workers’ comp attorney and his entire practice is devoted towards helping injured employees. He is recognized by his peers as a very knowledge adversary and they always have positive things to say about him. He is also accessible on social media and posts informative content.
