Jill Sauber is an Associate Attorney and practices in the areas of elder law with emphasis on long-term care planning, asset protection, and government benefits; estate planning; estate administration (probate); trusts; litigation; and mortuary law. She has a law degree from the University of St. Thomas School of Law, and Bachelor of Science degrees from the University of Minnesota in Biology, Physiology, and Mortuary Science. Her work as a licensed mortician laid the foundation for her interest in elder law and litigation.
She is a volunteer for the Wills for Heroes Program, participant in the Minnesota Elder Justice Center (formerly the Vulnerable Adult Justice Project), volunteer with Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MAC-V), Dementia Champion through the ACT on Alzheimer’s Initiative, and is an active member of the Elder Law Governing Council of the Elder Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association, including acting as current Treasurer, current Chair of the New Lawyer's Committee, and former Co-Chair of the Pro Bono Committee.
Recently, Jill successfully advocated on behalf of her disabled clients, working closely with government officials, to institute changes to the Hennepin County Fee Policies regarding payment of fees for court-appointed guardians, conservators, and attorneys for In Forma Pauperis (IFP) probate cases.
She appreciates connecting with clients from all walks of life. A quote that describes her approach to life is: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” When not at work, Jill can be found hiking, practicing yoga, silversmithing, at the dog park with her dog Zoey, or spending time with her husband Jamie at his brewpub. She also loves a good soy caramel latte.
