Jacqueline Sailer started her legal career as a corporate litigator in Delaware. She then returned to New York and became a name partner at a class action boutique in New York City, where she represented defrauded investors and aggrieved consumers in state and federal courts nationwide. After 21 years in private practice, Jacqueline began a career of public service and public interest pursuits. She provides pro bono legal advice to low income residents of New York City and asylum seekers through various organizations. She has taught yoga and mindfulness to inmates on Riker’s Island and to the homeless and addicted in Harlem. A graduate of St. John’s University School of Law and Smith College, she is a member of the New York and Delaware state bars and various federal courts, including the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Delaware Highlands region holds a special place in her heart, as she and her husband were married on the banks of the Delaware. From their house on the river in Wayne County they watch the antics of otters, eagles, and the occasional bear. Jacqueline recognizes the need to protect and conserve the region’s natural resources. In 2022, she joined the Delaware Highlands Conservancy’s legal and land protection committees, and in 2023, she joined the Board.
