VETERAN ATTORNEY TODD S. HAMMOND
ABOUT TODD S. HAMMOND

BACKGROUND

Upon my return to the United States, after serving my country
in the United States Air Force during Desert Shield and Storm,
I witnesses first hand how our Nation has let down our
veterans.  I searched for the important answer to the question
“Why?”  With no solution, I knew that I was being called upon
to take it upon myself to make the changes necessary.  To
enforce our country’s promise to our veterans I knew that I
needed to train to become an Attorney to fight the government
agencies’ lawyers.  I came home to Salem, Oregon and
enrolled in Law School at Willamette University College of Law.

My legal career began as a compliance specialist with the
Oregon Construction and Landscape Contractors Boards and
the Department of Agriculture.  Then I had the distinct
pleasure of being a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Paul J.
De Muñiz at the Oregon Court of Appeals, now the Chief
Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court before representing
SAIF Corporation in workers’ compensation hearings.  This
training prepared me for opening up the law firm of Van Ness,
Hammond, Mooney, LLC and ultimately forming this Veterans
Referral Service.
