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.

In his free time, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife, Kristen, their daughter, Sydney, and their son, Tanner.
