Jessica J. Sauer is an associate attorney at the Law Office of Kevin A. Pollock LLC. She focuses her practice on estate planning, trust administration and guardianship matters.
Jessica previously represented children involved with protective services and is passionate about drafting special needs trusts and other documents that account for the unique needs and situation of each family. Her years of trial experience and work with social service systems has proved invaluable in her guardianship practice, when the failure to create a comprehensive estate plan necessitates court involvement before a person passes away.
Jessica is actively involved in the estate planning community as a member of the Mercer County Estate Planning Council, the Elder & Disability Law and Real Property, Trusts & Estate Law Sections of the New Jersey State Bar Association and the Probate Committee of the Mercer County Bar Association. She is also a former Trustee of the Women in the Profession Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. She has been admitted to the New Jersey bar since 2007.
While attending Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, Jessica obtained both a Juris Doctorate from the School of Law and a Certificate in Dispute Resolution from the University’s Straus Institute. A Faculty Scholar and Lead Articles Editor of the Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal, she competed in the Vincent S. Dalsimer Moot Court Competition, received a CALI Award for Excellence in Arbitration Practice and interned for the Honorable Lawrence J. Mira of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. She is a Magna cum Laude graduate of Grove City College, where she graduated with a B.S. in Business Management and a B.A. in Political Science.
She is currently pursuing a post-graduate LL.M. in Taxation at Villanova University to continue developing her knowledge of sophisticated planning strategies for high net worth individuals and closely-held businesses.
Jessica was recently recognized as one of New Jersey’s 10 Best Estate Planning Attorneys by the American Institute of Legal Counsel.
