Wylie Stecklow


WylieLaw was founded in 1995 by Wylie M. Stecklow to help educate individuals and assist in protecting their Constitutional and legal rights. Wylie believed he was better suited to working with real clients—individuals affected with real problems—than with large corporations who were often more interested in moving decimal points around their balance sheets.  Wylie has learned that change on an individual level can create beneficial results to family, friends and futures. WylieLaw was founded upon principals of conflict resolution that include not only the bottom dollar, but also the physical and emotional cost to the client.

After graduating from Fordham Law School, Wylie worked with large corporate law firms including Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle and Davis Markel & Edwards. Wylie left the corporate firm practice and spent two years learning about small firm practice while working for the legendary Bronx criminal attorney, Murray Richman. Wylie then started his own law firm in 1995 and has been helping people resolve their legal problems ever since.
