I am Samantha Allen, a Massachusetts Attorney, Counselor at Law, Owner of Law Mom, LLC, wife, and mommy to my son Wes.
My legal experience started at the Wareham District Courthouse; from there, I worked for a big law firm in Boston, MA, which led me to opening my general practice law firm. I felt that there was more, something that I needed to do, and I hadn't figured it out yet. In 2019, the message was clear, and the "message" was right in front of my face.
Have you ever thought to yourself, I am young, I don't need an estate plan?
Truthfully, even as an attorney, the last thing I wanted to think about was an estate plan. I was young and healthy and my husband was young and healthy. I didn't want to think about death, I was scared of the one thing that is guaranteed in life.
Almost right after we met, we started flipping properties, eventually purchasing and renovating our home. From there, we were married, he started a company, I started two companies, while working a full-time job. And in between all of that we found out we were pregnant! The two of us were enjoying life with little care in the world. After all, we were only in our 30's, young and healthy.
THEN... After a healthy pregnancy, I, a 33-year-old healthy woman, became deathly ill and almost lost my life after giving birth. Our lives turned upside down. The home I once knew was turned into a makeshift hospital with nurses and caretakers for what felt like an eternity.
Nick and I realized that we weren't invincible; age didn't matter. Together we had worked so hard to build a life for our family. And in the blink of an eye, we almost lost everything. If something were to happen to us, we didn't want our family searching for assets, taking care of our business matters, or having to deal with a long drawn out court process. And most importantly, making decisions for our sweet baby, Wes.
After my own experience and learning that approximately 69% of parents do not have an estate plan for their family, I opened Law Mom. Law Mom is an estate planning firm with a modern legal approach, designed by a parent for parents.
Our goal is to educate our community, on "HOW TO" make empowered, informed decisions keeping loved ones out of court and conflict, while preserving legacies.
We have thrown out the time clocks! Everything is done on a flat-fee basis, agreed to in advance, so there are never any surprises. We strongly encourage consistent and frequent communication with our clients.
We believe that your plan should grow with your family. We answer your questions at your convenience, and we meet in person or virtually to discuss changes in life circumstances and the law to ensure that your assets are protected. Most importantly, we make sure the most important planning details are followed through on and your plan continues to work throughout your lifetime.
