Todd M. Wesche is the Managing Member and founder of Vetus Legal LLC. He helps veterans, and their dependents and survivors, obtain the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits they deserve. This has been his passion since 2004, building on his experience as an active-duty member of the U.S. Air Force.
He has had a distinguished and unparalleled career doing so. It started with Todd serving for four years as a Law Clerk and then the Senior Law Clerk to the Honorable Bruce E. Kasold at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC). He then left to represent his fellow servicemembers before the CAVC and at the VA. He has represented hundreds of veterans and advised on thousands of claims.
His vast experience also helps others who also serve veterans. Since January 2013, Todd has been a member of Board of Directors of the National Organization of Veterans' Advocates (NOVA), a nation-wide organization that trains attorneys and advocates to improve their practice before the VA and the CAVC. He has presented at NOVA's training seminars on many occasions. Additionally, he has advised the CAVC judges on possible changes to its own rules as a member of its Rules Advisory Committee. He currently serves on the CAVC's Committee on Admission and Practice, which investigates alleged ethics violations and makes recommendations to the Court.
Todd earned his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 2002 from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, Massachusetts, and his Master of Laws in Litigation and Dispute Resolution in 2004 from The George Washington University School of Law in Washington, DC. He is accredited to practice before the VA, and he is admitted to practice before the CAVC, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States as well as in Massachusetts and the District of Columbia (among others).
