Peter Sachs

We hope you all join us in celebrating Founding Partner Peter S. Sachs’ 50-year anniversary of practicing law in the State of Florida!  

Peter became a member of The Florida Bar in 1973. He and his fellow 50-Year members were honored at the 2023 Florida Bar 50-Year Member Luncheon at The Boca Raton on Friday, June 23, 2023. The special event took place during The Florida Bar Annual Convention, which was held from June 21st-24th in Boca Raton. Earlier this year, Peter also celebrated 50 years since graduating from Fordham Law School with other members of the Class of ’73, including Senior Judge  Loretta Preska of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (SDNY), at their reunion in New York City.  

“It is difficult to comprehend that 50 years have elapsed since taking my oath as a Member of the Florida Bar.  I am grateful that along the way I received guidance and mentorship from lawyers and judges that I admired as consummate and ethical professionals.  Looking back, what I cherish most are the friendships that I made with other lawyers, jurists, and the many clients that I was privileged to represent.  I am blessed to still be practicing law and look forward to mentoring the next generation of attorneys, including those at my law firm and two children who followed in my footsteps, one of whom is a Family Law attorney and the other who works in the legal department of The Disney Corporation.” – Peter Sachs  

Peter founded Sachs Sax Caplan P.L. in 1979. He is Board Certified in Condominium and Planned Development Law by The Florida Bar and through the years has handled a multitude of matters related to community associations (condominiums, cooperatives, homeowners, master and country clubs). He is considered one of the pioneers in the development of community association law and has earned a reputation as a staunch consumer rights advocate. 

Peter’s notable work includes obtaining significant settlements on behalf of each of the four Century Village communities and the Kings Point complex in Delray Beach. He also created and represents Kings Point Recreation Corporation, the unit owner-controlled entity that operates and administers the amenity package for 7,200 Kings Point unit owners. In several South Florida gated communities, Sachs has successfully merged the two governing Chapter 617 entities (Country Club and Property Owners Association) into a single entity resulting in increased efficiencies, sales tax savings for Club members, and reallocation of real estate taxes for the community.  

Peter has been an AV® Rated by Martindale-Hubbell for over 40 years, the highest peer review rating attainable and has been recognized by Super Lawyers for his work in Condominium and Planned Development Law. Sachs is married to Maria  Sachs, Palm Beach County Commissioner, Former Florida State Senator, and Criminal Defense Attorney. He has five children and five grandchildren.
