Learn more about Jessica

Jessica J. Sauer, Esq. has been practicing law for over thirteen years and focuses her practice on estate planning (creating wills, trusts, and powers of attorney), estate administration (probating wills and administering estates, preparing inheritance tax returns) and court matters related to assets and planning (guardianships, conservatorship, and adoption). 

Licensed to practice law in the State of New Jersey since 2007 and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania since 2020, Jessica began her career as a law guardian, advocating and litigating on behalf of children and young adults involved with child protective services. A Bergen County native, she practiced alongside experienced estate planning and administration attorneys in the Princeton area for nearly five years before founding The Sauer Law Firm LLC at the end of 2020. 

Experiences with child welfare have provided her a knowledge of (and sensitivity to) the unique challenges faced in difficult custody situations and when family members have special needs. In addition to designing estate plans to address these challenges, she is passionate about ensuring that families incorporate tax and charitable planning as appropriate. 

Jessica is working towards an LLM in Taxation at Villanova to help continue deepening her familiarity with sophisticated estate planning strategies designed for the needs of high net worth families. She has given presentations about estate planning and charitable giving to various community groups and recently provided continuing legal education to other lawyers during a New Jersey State Bar Association Elder Law Retreat. 

A graduate of the Pepperdine University School of Law (Malibu, California), Jessica  served as an editor of the Dispute Resolution Law Journal, provided free legal services to parents in need through Union Rescue Mission Family Law Clinic, earned a CALI Award for Excellence in Arbitration Practice, and externed for the Honorable Lawrence J. Mira of Los Angeles County Superior Court.  She is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Grove City College.

Licensed in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Jessica is really and willing to meet the legal needs of families in North Jersey, Central Jersey, and Eastern Pennsylvania.
