Mercedes R. Wechsler

Mercedes R Wechsler PA

Mercedes Wechsler attended law school at the University of Florida starting in January 1995 as a single mother and finished law school in two and a half years. To her surprise, she wasn’t the only “non-traditional” law student and she rapidly became a huge Gator fan!  After graduating in May 1997 from UF, Mercedes and her son returned to Central Florida.

Her son, Alex, graduated Winter Park High School and is now a graduate of the fire academy.  Mercedes is very involved in the arts community, and balances the stress of practicing law with running and yoga.

Law is a second career for Mercedes.  After growing up in Central Florida, attending high school and college here in Orlando, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from the University of Central Florida in 1985.

Mercedes worked mostly in the military defense industry for the next 10 years.   But going to law school was always in the back or her mind. When a dear friend died of cancer at 36 years old, Mercedes decided she could no longer ignore what she really wanted to do.

Mercedes worked in the areas of products liability, commercial litigation, insurance defense, government defense and charter schools. In 2001, a yoga teacher approached Mercedes about helping her with a divorce. Although she did not practice in that area, with the assistance of another attorney, she took the case. Through that experience, Mercedes realized that family law was what she wanted to practice. She went out on her own full-time in 2002 and never looked back!

Mercedes R. Wechsler, P.A. handles all areas of family law, including dissolution of marriage, modifications, alimony, child custody, paternity, relocation, contempt and enforcement, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements, complex asset valuation.
