About Me


Jeremy
A. Wechsler is a licensed attorney in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and
focuses his practice on estate planning, elder law/long term care planning and
asset protection for a variety of families. Jeremy is adamant that every family
should plan, no matter how little or much they have, remarking that “proper
estate planning shows compassion for your family, allowing for continuity
during difficult times and diffusing any possible conflict or uncertainty.”


 


Now in the third year of practicing in his own firm, Jeremy has
quickly gained the respect and confidence of the community he serves. Jeremy
only practices in the area of estate and elder law planning, allowing him to
focus his complete attention on the latest laws, trends and tools to create
effective plans. He regularly attends conferences and seminars to hear from
other experts across the country, most recently attending the Pennsylvania
Bar’s Estate and Elder Law Institute in July of 2011. Jeremy is a member of ElderCounsel, a national organization of top Elder Law attorneys.


 


Jeremy regularly speaks on estate planning matters in front of
community groups, as well as seminars and workshops provided for the benefit of
prospective and current clients. He also hosts a weekly radio show on
retirement and estate planning each week on AM NewsTalk 1180 (Philadelphia,
PA).


 


Beyond estate planning, Jeremy’s life has been devoted to helping
others. After graduating from The George Washington University School of
Business, Jeremy joined Teach For America, a national program that places recent
college graduates in underserved public schools throughout the United States
for two years. He spent three years teaching middle school in West
Philadelphia.


 


During law school, Jeremy expanded his focus on helping others by
working for the New York City Department of Homeless Services, New York Lawyers
for the Public Interest, and The Legal Aid Society. Jeremy also participated in
his law school’s Urban Law Clinic, where he successfully helped several clients
in special education and employment discrimination matters.


 


Through these experiences, Jeremy has learned of the importance of
helping others and giving back to your community. Estate and elder law planning
is a natural extension of his commitment to helping people. Jeremy knows that
having a trusted plan that properly cares for family and friends can provide
peace of mind for clients and their family members. It is simply the best gift
you can give to yourself and your family. As such, Jeremy takes the time to
work with each client to understand his or her individual and family needs, and
tailors each estate plan accordingly.


 


Jeremy attended
New York Law School, where he graduated at the top third of his class. He is
licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, and is an active member of the
Pennsylvania Bar and Montgomery County bar. In addition to his legal
background, Jeremy holds a Masters of Education from Saint Joseph’s University
and a Bachelor of Business Administration from The George Washington
University.


 


In his spare
time, Jeremy enjoys traveling, volunteering, politics and spending time with
his family and Daisy, his lovable rat terrier. Jeremy is a member of the Family
Law Committee of the Montgomery County Bar Association. He also serves as a
volunteer arbitrator. He was raised in Langhorne, PA and currently resides in
Philadelphia, PA.
