About me

My firm specializes in the representation of professional licensees before various state boards and other disciplinary agencies.  I have represented clients before Administrative Panels, State Agencies, Trial and Appellate Courts.  Among Mr. Wechsler's clients are attorneys facing State Bar discipline and applicants to the State Bar with Moral Character considerations; licensed health-care professionals such as physicians, dentists, RNs, LVNs, psychologists, and other business professionals such as real estate salespersons and brokers, insurance brokers, contractors, smog dealers, bail bonds licensees, jockeys and trainers, and other professionals facing investigation or professional discipline. 



I am a former Deputy Attorney General for the State of California.  I was appointed to the Committee of Bar Examiners by the Board of Governors of the State Bar of California from 2000 through 2004.  .
