Rona Wexler knows the real world of employment, candidate assessment, effective job search and job placement with over 25 years as a global corporation business consultant & manager, executive recruiter and career counseling. She combines this experience with a vocational evaluator’s methodology and current, local labor market research -- a combination the courts find most compelling. Her hands-on experience means that she quickly grasps and clearly explain the party's skills and "placeability" to determine earning capacity. Her work and testimony have earned her respect from all parties. That is why so many referrals come from satisfied clients, opposing counsel and the court as a neutral expert appointment.
She has made numerous presentations about employment, the job search and career transitions and has presented to the Bar Association CLE's in county and state bar associations, New York County Lawyers Association and national law firms. She serves on the NYSBA Family Law Section Executive Committee (Non-Lawyer Professional). As a specialist in employment matters, Ms. Wexler’s articles have appeared in the New York Law Journal, the NYSBA Family Law Review and the various ALM publications and Valuing Marital Assets, Aspen Publishing (2011-2017 eds.).
