Chelsea Vetre

Chelsea K. Vetre

Education and Bar Admissions

Education:

  • Quinnipiac School of Law (J.D.), 2015
  • New Haven University (B.S.) 2012, Magna Cum Laude

Bar Admissions:

  • State of Connecticut

Attorney Vetre’s passion has always been helping families. She started her career helping her high-net worth clients through divorce & custody matters. Although she has a natural talent at mediating complex problems, she did not enjoy the transactional nature of family law.

Thus, it was not suprising that Attorney Vetre was drawn to estate planning when her grandfather passed away.

Her grandfather planned his entire life and thought his after-death wishes were taken care of by his attorney. However, Attorney Vetre and her grandmother discovered he was misled. After his devastating death, Attorney Vetre’s family was left with a huge mess. Facing the sorrow brought from the death of her husband, her grandmother did not know what to do or who to turn to. She reached out to her husband’s attorney and was met with unreturned phone calls, unclear answers and sleepless nights. Attorney Vetre vowed to do better for her family.

Joining Wiley Etter, LLC, a like minded firm, she began to focus her new career. Through tireless dedication, persistence and above all, treating her clients as family, she knew that her clients would never suffer as her grandmother and family did.

Attorney Vetre is also passionate about women’s rights and is a strong supporter of women owned businesses. She enjoys assisting strong, confident women in running and operating their small businesses, as well as volunteering extensively in the community with respect to domestic violence and women’s rights.

Attorney Vetre resides in Southington. When Attorney Vetre is not working, she enjoys spending time with her dog, family and close friends. Her hobbies include: exercising, yoga, hiking and dining out.
