Practice areas

Scott J. Judson is an associate attorney with Bold, Polisner, Maddow, Nelson & Judson. He received Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Political Science with High Honors and Communication with Honors from the University of California, Davis in 2009. Scott earned his J.D. in 2012 from UC Davis School of Law, where, among other things, he graduated in the top 25% of his class, earned the Witkin Award in Legal Research and Writing, served as Chair as the Trial Practice Honors Board, won the Seventh Annual Williams Institute Moot Court Competition at UCLA, and graduated as a member of the Order of Barristers.

Prior to joining BPMNJ, where his father, Craig, has worked for almost Scott's entire life, Scott served as the "litigation specialist" at a recognized estate planning, estate administration, business and taxation firm in Sacramento, California, gaining invaluable experience and familiarity with the Probate code and the practical aspects of trusts and estates planning, administration, and litigation. This work built upon the experience Scott gained as an associate attorney at a boutique litigation firm in Sacramento, California, where he worked under an esteemed trial attorney specializing in complex business and trust litigation, and corporate, partnership, and LLC disputes.

Scott is a member of the Schwartz/Levi American Inn of Court in Davis. Scott remains extremely active in his beloved alma mater by serving as the Vice President of Administration on the UC Davis Cal Aggie Alumni Association Board of Directors and as a Public Address Announcer for various UC Davis Athletics events. In his free time, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife, Kristen, and their daughter, Sydney. He also enjoys anything and everything sports, particularly the San Jose Sharks, UC Davis Aggies, San Francisco Giants, and San Francisco 49ers, wine tasting, golfing and barbequing on his beloved Traeger.

Family Trust
My wife and I hired Scott to set up a trust account for ourselves. Scott was extremely pleasant and very knowledgeable and explained in full how a trust operates. We were able to have it all completed within a few weeks. My wife and I now have piece of mind and would highly recommend Scott if you are looking to set up an estate/trust.

Assistance with Trust Documents
Scott was a great help with explaining all of my Trust Documents. I feel like I was in good hands with Drobny Law Offices and Scott Judson. I feel as though I have established documents that will greatly assist my family in the future.

I just want to say thanks for all the work setting up our family trust recently. From our initial meeting, the signing, and now receiving the binder with all the information. Nothing but the utmost in professionalism. You were great! I will definitely recommend you to friends and co-workers.

Estate Planning with Ease
Scott immediately put us at ease with his professional, yet very personable, manner. His communication skills are wonderful. We feel confident that he captured precisely what we wanted/needed. We are so glad to have been referred to him and wholeheartedly will refer him to our friends/family. If we had known creating a will/trust would be so straight-forward, so painless, we surely would have done this a lot sooner.

Excellent Estate Planning Attorney
While we had wills and POAs from another state, we were advised to update them and create a family trust to be in keeping with CA laws. We first met with Mark Drobny and then he assigned us to Mr. Judson. He was not only extremely knowledgeable, but also very thorough and patient with our many questions. He made what could be a difficult process very easy and comfortable. We appreciate the service we received from both Mr. Judson and Mr. Drobny and their staff and would recommend them highly.

Outstanding service!
Mr. Judson's knowledge, service and demeanor were outstanding. This was my first time visiting an attorney for estate planning, and before my visit it all seemed so overwhelming to the point of inaction. Mr. Judson explained everything clearly and was very easy to work with when we had any questions or wanted to make changes. He is a great advocate for estate planning and made taking those steps comfortable and stress-free.

Scott took over our estate planning from a previous lawyer who had left the firm. Scott stepped right in as though he had conducted the initial interview. Scott was professional, understanding, informative and attentive to detail. We were very satisfied with him and his firm.
