Background

After forty years of extensive trial and mediation experience, I am pleased to announce that I will be conducting my mediations with Florida Mediation Group, www.floridamediation.com, while continuing my law practice with The Wechsler Law Group, LLC.  I chose Florida Mediation Group for their outstanding reputation, the experience and quality of their mediators and the excellent service provided by their efficient staff of Case Administrators.

I have over 40-years of combined trial and ADR experience.  I will continue to mediate and practice law state-wide in my fields of Product Liability, Personal Injury and Wrongful Death, eDiscovery and Electronically Stored Information (ESI), Mass Torts, Catastrophic Injuries, Insurance Coverage and Disputes issues, Professional Negligence, Asbestos, Premises Liability, Motor Vehicle Crashworthiness, and Complex Commercial Disputes.

I have represented a wide range of clients, both plaintiffs and defendants, including automobile and product manufacturers, insurance companies, individuals, corporations,  government entities, utility companies, hospitals, physicians and accountants.
I received my undergraduate degree in Accounting from Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York, and my law degree from Suffolk University Law School in Boston.  For my entire career I was a trial attorney and litigator, and tried cases around the country.  I took my trial experience into the mediation arena, where I help the mediation participants to become the authors of their own fate, and make their own decisions as to how to resolve their cases. 
Over the years I became active in many professional organizations and committees.  I have been an "AV Preeminent" rating for the past 30-years from Martindale-Hubbell, and have been consistently been selected as a Florida Super Lawyer.  I am admitted to practice before all courts in Florida and New York as well as the United States Supreme Court.  Some of the committees and organizations I am active with are:
  • The Florida Board of Bar Examiners
  • The Florida Supreme Court Committee on Standard Jury Instructions-Civil
  • The 11th and 17th Circuit Professionalism and Civility Committees
  • Fellow of the American College of e-Neutrals
