Scott J. Judson is the Managing Attorney of the Sacramento office of Bold, Polisner, Maddow, Nelson & Judson, A Professional Corporation. 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 remains extremely active in his beloved alma mater by serving as the President of 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, their daughter, Sydney, and their son, Tanner. 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 barbecuing on his beloved Traeger.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
