About me

I have been practicing since 2004.  I worked for a firm in Boston, MA that handled anything a client may need from the beginning of their life to the end of their life.  I always like to accommodate my clients and make them feel at ease when having to navigate whatever legal situation they may encounter.  Two years ago, I moved back to New York State and now I practice primarily family law and all aspects related to this area.

  • Christine M Nicastro

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Jessica Saks works very well with the client. She truly cares about each individual person that she represents and really puts her entire self into finding a resolution for them on the case. Divorce law is a field requiring a very strong and dynamic personality. To succeed in it, the attorney, must be not only strong, but also reasonable, empathetic, and able to negotiate with the attorney on the opposing side. Attorney Saks has a very sharp mind and is on top of her game at all times. Attorney Saks has been very successful in the entire family law area. I highly recommend her.
