About Us

Founded in 1988, Wechsler Becker, LLP is a family law firm located in downtown Seattle's Columbia Center, one block from the courthouse. Martindale-Hubbell rates Wechsler Becker as an AV law firm, its highest rating, and lists the firm in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. The firm consists of five partners and three associates, all exclusively practicing family law.

Cases handled include high value/high profile divorces, complex parenting disputes, cohabitation cases, paternity actions, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, child relocations, and post-decree modifications of support and parenting plans. We also provide consulting services and litigation support for other attorneys. Firm attorneys frequently speak at legal education seminars, take leadership positions in the family law bar, and serve as mediators and arbitrators upon request by other family law attorneys.

With the increasing complexity and specialization of family law, our firm enjoys the benefit of concentration in one field. Wechsler Becker holds monthly case meetings to exchange ideas on how best to handle cases. Sharing experience and knowledge in a small cohesive firm, concentrated in one area of the law, allows all clients to benefit from the expertise of the entire firm.

Our attorneys believe that family law is a fascinating field, different from other types of law, and that it is the ideal practice for those who endeavor to help real people solve real problems. We apply creative problem-solving techniques to the intertwined legal, financial and emotional complications involved in family law disputes.
The firm also believes that it is critical to work with professional organizations, the courts, and the legislature regarding the administration of justice and its impact on the public.
