Amy Wechsler, Esq., a partner at Shimalla, Wechsler, Lepp & D’Onofrio, LLP, was recently named as the next president of the New Jersey chapter of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (NJ-AFCC), effective May 1, 2017. The announcement was made at the AFCC annual meeting held April 6, 2017. AFCC is an interdisciplinary, international association of professionals dedicated to improving the lives of children and families through the resolution of family conflict.
At the same meeting, Ms. Wechsler was also recognized as the recipient of the 2017 Phil Sobel award. Phil Sobel was a founder of the New Jersey AFCC chapter, envisioning a community of collaborative professionals working together to achieve the best possible outcome for children and families within the justice system, and, when possible, by avoiding court involvement altogether. The award is given each year to a chapter member whose body of work in the field of family law represents Phil Sobel’s vision.
