Jocelyn G. Wechter


Jocelyn G. Wechter was born and raised in Lake County. She graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy. Ms. Wechter earned her Juris Doctor from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She earned high honors and competed on Loyola’s Mock Trial team. Upon graduating from law school, Ms. Wechter clerked for the Illinois Appellate Court Justice and taught a high school law course in Chicago.

Prior to joining Gravel & Wechter P.C., Jocelyn was an attorney at O’Connor Law Firm and Dworskin & Maciariello where she practiced personal injury law in Chicago.
