Theodore M. Wachtel, Esq.

Ted was born and raised in a small town in Connecticut. From a young age he set his sights on the big city and, ultimately, fulfilled his dream when he moved to New York. There, he graduated from Columbia University and Cardozo Law School. Ted remained in New York, practicing civil litigation. Ted decided to seek the sun of California.

In 2003 after his arrival to California he began his career as a Workers’ Compensation defense attorney. He handled all aspects on the defense side for over 10 years. Ted realized that to effectively represent his clients, he had to experience the applicants’ practice from the inside, which he did before returning to defense with Bradford & Barthel. Ted’s priorities are his work, his family, including three daughters, and his faith. The latter two drive Ted to be the best attorney he can be.
