Jordan E. Trager


"My goal is to reduce the emotional toll of divorce on my clients and work towards achieving a settlement that best meets their needs and concerns and the results they want to achieve."

JORDAN E. TRAGER, ESQ. joined Wisselman & Associates, P.C. in February, 2011. Mr. Trager has over 20 years of litigation experience handling matrimonial and family law matters. He has tried numerous complex divorce and Family Court cases on a wide range of issues, including custody, parenting time, property distribution, child support and orders of protection.
