Hello! I’m Sam Allen, founding attorney of Law Mom® and your neighborhood Personal Family Lawyer®.

I help families avoid collapse after the death or disability of a loved one.

I opened Law Mom® because I know firsthand how crucial wealth and guardianship planning is for families. In 2019 after the birth of my first son, I almost lost my life. And I didn’t have a plan in place to protect him if the worst happened. Thankfully I was given a second chance, and now I’m passionate about helping families like yours provide a secure future for their children and the next generation.

In 2021, I was named a Top Trusts and Estates Attorney by Boston Magazine, and my practice made the Best of South Shore Law Firm List. And in 2022, I was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star, a distinction that only 2.5% of lawyers in Massachusetts are awarded.

I stay active in the community as a member of Wealth Counsel, a national organization of Trusts and Estates attorneys. I’m the President of Duxbury Newcomers Club, a philanthropic organization in my town. And I’m a proud member of the Women’s Business League, Boston Business Women, and Pillars of Profitability.

When I’m not with my clients, I’m renovating homes with my husband, raising awareness for childhood Type 1 Diabetes, and going on adventures with my two sons and their Lolli and Pops (also known as my parents!)

Above and Beyond
I cannot speak high enough of Sam. My mother is diagnosed with terminal cancer and its a very touchy situation. While on the consultation, both my mom and myself were crying and Sam was also compassionate and got teary eyed. Through out the entire call she was kind and respectful and listened. We had a free 30 min consultation that turned into an hour and she never acted like it was an inconvience or that this was about the money. It was about my mom and our family and making sure we are protected. It was about her understanding how sensitive this matter is and taking the time to show kindness and compassion for someone in one of the hardest times of their life. I wish I could give more stars and I know that words will just not do Sam justice. Our family will forever be greatful for the time and care she took with our mother. You will not go wrong hiring Sam as your attorney. 10 out of 10 I would recommend.

The complete Estate Planning Service
After procrastinating for at least 30 years doing an estate plan, a will, or even a health care proxy. I finally made the effort and hired Sam of Law Mom. Sam and her team did a great job of getting everything Sue & I need to ensure when we die our estate goes where we want it to go and not to the Feds or state of MA. Thank you Sam!

Estate planning
After seeing “LawMom” advertised on social media and in site of this pandemic I realized I had let my estate planning go for far too long. Expecting to spend a small fortune and to be confused by lawyer speak I hesitantly called. Probably one of the best decisions I made in a long time. My estate is protected for my children and I have gained invaluable knowledge for a reasonable sum of money. Thank you to Sam and the staff at LawMom for making this experience an easy and affordable one.

Peace of mind
Amanda helped to explain all the documents I would need to create a trust and will. She also provided me with information and documents for end of life planning. This whole process has made me feel comfortable that my daughters will have all the documents and information they will need. Great job. She and her staff are also warm and friendly. So happy I found her

I consulted with Ms. Allen at the start of the corona 19 pandemic. She guided me to make good decisions. She also gave me guidance regarding my POA.

Attorney Sam Allen is the best!
Attorney Sam Allen worked with me to set up my Estate Plan. She explained the process clearly and worked with me and my husband to create a plan specific for my family. Sam spent time educating us, and was always available to answer our many questions. Sam conducts herself with integrity and joy, she is a pleasure to work with. I recommend her highly without reservation.
