Molly Lewis Sasso is a shrewd and committed advocate in the field of family law and prides herself on mastering her craft, leading her to pursue and achieve the elite status of Board Certification in Marital & Family Law in 2019./
Molly is an active member of the Family Law Inns of Court as well as the President of Luciano’s Light, a charitable organization formed by the law partners offering free and reduced-fee legal services to families of loss seeking to grow their family through Assisted Reproductive Technology or Adoption. Molly is also active in local civic organizations, serving as a proud sustaining member of the Junior League of Jacksonville and as President of her local Moms of Multiples Group, JACKPOTT (Jacksonville Parents of Twins & Triplets).
Molly was born in Moultrie, Georgia to T. Larry Lewis and Janet Whitfield Lewis, the last of four children. Her parents were the proud owners of Larry Lewis Plumbing Company, where her father served as a Master Plumber and her mother managed his office. Her parents’ plumbing business was only her first experience with a family-owned business which engendered the entrepreneurial spirit in Molly at a young age.
When Molly’s own parents divorced after twenty-two years of marriage, Molly’s mother began college and graduated with a degree in Accounting from Valdosta State University. Until 2012, she was the proud owner of Lewis Accounting in Valdosta, Georgia. At that time, she relocated to sunny Florida to be near Molly and her family, where she serves as Molly’s accountant and a tax consultant to many of Molly’s clients. Both of Molly’s parents instilled in her the value of an honest day’s work and the satisfaction of working for yourself.
Molly’s mother also impressed upon Molly the importance of an education from a very young age because she knew what a difficult time she faced when she sought a college education for the first time after her divorce. Molly graduated from Valdosta High School in 1996 and then attended Oglethorpe University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2000. Molly served as President of her sorority, Chi Omega, and editor of the student yearbook. After college, she was the recipient of a scholarship to attend the University of Georgia School of Law. She graduated in 2003, Cum Laude, making her the Bulldog-in-Residence at the law office of Sasso & Guerrero.
In 2013, Molly and her husband welcomed twin baby boys. She came to truly understand how important time-sharing considerations are to her Divorce and Paternity clients, who must develop a parenting plan with the other parent to serve their children’s best interests, though neither parent can have the children 100% of the time. Her boys have made Molly an even better family lawyer.
In 2016, Molly and her husband welcomed another baby boy, Luciano. He had a heart condition which required surgery. Unfortunately, sweet Luciano did not make it to his surgery date, being welcomed home to Heaven on October 1, 2016. As Molly found comfort in a community of grieving moms, she began to understand the overwhelming trials that many families face, of which conceiving is only the first of many steps to carry a healthy pregnancy to term. Many couples experiencing infertility lose their children at or before birth. Fertility struggles and bereavement walk side by side. Molly felt called to help grieving families who long for a baby after child loss. Luciano fueled Molly’s interest in what she could do to legally assist parents seeking their miracles through Assisted Reproductive Technology.
Benefitting from Christie Guerrero’s heart for charity, the law partners launched Luciano’s Light, a charity offering free and reduced-fee legal services to loss families seeking to grow their family through Adoption or Assisted Reproductive Technology. In bereavement circles, a baby born after loss is referred to as a “Rainbow Baby,” so the charity’s logo reflects Luciano’s Light being cast through a prism to create a rainbow. Little Luciano had a role in making Molly a better family lawyer still.
