Scott Peter Schomer
Mr. Schomer was excellent in getting our family trust and estate affairs in order. My husband and I had put off doing this and Scott really made the process easy! He is very passionate in making sure his clients get all that they need and we really appreciated it. I would highly recommend him and look forward to the many years he will be available to assist our family.

Elder Abuse
I am an attorney and after consulting with my colleagues on who to hire for an elder abuse matter they recommended Scott and I was extremely pleased. Scott is extremely knowledgeable about this very specialized and complex area of the law. Scott has a very calm demeanor and was able to provide the result we were seeking in a cost efficient manner. I highly recommend Scott and his dedicated team, they are very professional and experienced.

You may only have a chance to get it right one time
When you’re presented with an invitation to attend in a mailer, you may have reservations, this was a truly gift!! My wife and I were educated and guided through the process of creating a family trust. Both of our parents had attorney’s that “worked” with wills/trusts, but came up short. Fortunately, the Schomer Law Group was there! This is a group of attorney’s that only specialize in estate planning, law, and financial advice, so you know you’re getting expert and personalized advice. This is the best money we’ve ever spent!! Thank you!

Highly Recommend
We put off getting a trust for years. After attending a seminar with Scott Schomer we realized that the time had come to get a trust. We were given very good reasons for why we should get a trust. No pressure, just the plain facts. We are very relieved and happy to finally get our trust. Scott and Cesar were very knowledgeable, helpful and listened to our ideas of what we had to say. Any questions that we have now and in the future they are available to assist us to solve them. I recommend the Schomer Law Group and I wish we knew about them years ago.

Great firm to work with.
We need to update our Living Trust and attended Schomer Law Group’s seminar. Afterwards we made an appointment and were impressed by the attention Scott Schomer and Liran Aliav gave to our case answering all questions and making suggestions how to minimize the estate tax. All the office staff is very friendly and we highly recommend Schomer Law Group.

Living Trust
Scott Schomer and his associates wrote a living trust for my wife and I. We had been putting this off for years, but realized it had to be done. Scott and Liran made the experience painless. They explained the things we needed to know without getting us lost in legal jargon. Their help and advice was very good and useful. All with a sense of humor.

Very knowledgeable and helpful
Scott really helped me understand probate issues for my father's estate. He very quickly understood my unique situation and was able to offer invaluable advice that gave me the confidence to move forward and protect my family's interests well.

Outstanding Estate Planning Attorney
Mr. Schomer was very thorough when my husband & I met with him to do our estate plan. He got to know us and helped us understand the planning we needed to do and how important it was to name guardians for our 3 children. He also offered a wonderful service included with our estate plan called "Priceless Conversations." We were able to leave an audio legacy of our memories,values, words of wisdom and family history to pass on to our children and family members. Mr. Schomer really knows the law and counciled us about avoiding probate and getting everything in order.
