Young Adult Dependent Program

The team at Scott Bloom Law is pleased to introduce our Young Adult Dependent Program, specifically developed to help young adults as they make the transition to legal adulthood. As you enter adulthood, it is extremely important to begin preparing for anything that life may throw at you. While it is understandable at this young age to feel healthy, energetic, and even indestructible, at any time you may quickly be confronted with a crisis that requires timely decision-making that may carry long-term implications for both your physical and financial well-being. Once you turn 18 years old, in the eyes of the law you are an adult, with all of the adult responsibilities that come with it. Unlike before, if something were to happen to you, legally speaking, your parents are no longer in a position to speak for you. This can put you and your family in a stressful and perhaps costly position.

Having the proper paperwork and strategic plans in place for any contingency allows you, and your family, to avoid undue stress were you to be confronted with an unexpected crisis. As an example, this could include granting your parents Power of Attorney, allowing for them to speak on your behalf on financial and medical issues if you were to be incapacitated. It is always best to be prepared and by utilizing our program, you will be ahead of the game. Live for today but plan for tomorrow.

CLIENT Testimonial

Scott Bloom Law Estate Planning Diagram

Sometimes after a loved one passes away, the family learns of things they were unaware of while the loved one was living. This was the case for one of our clients, Sam, after his father Tom Jr. passed away. Sam was always under the impression that the home he had grown up in, and that his father had lived in until his death, was owned by Tom Jr. To say it came as a surprise that it was indeed Sam’s grandfather, Tom Sr., who was the actual owner of the home, is an understatement. 

Apparently, when Tom Sr. had passed away nearly 40 years ago, there was no proper estate plan established. Now, Sam would need to open his grandfather’s estate, resolve tax issues that were never addressed, and then go through the legal process to make the home a part of his father’s estate. At first, Sam believed that the entire process would be easy enough for him to handle on his own. However, after digging a little deeper, he quickly realized he would need the help of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.

Sam reached out to Scott Bloom Law and we developed a game plan for moving forward. We began by probating Tom Jr.’s will and, after some time, we were able to settle the estates of both Tom Sr. and Tom Jr. While it was no fault of Sam, this is a great example of the importance of having an Estate Plan in place. No one wants to leave their families in precarious situations after they pass. The long-term purpose of setting up an Estate Plan today is to preserve as much of your wealth as possible for the intended beneficiaries and retaining a capable attorney can help ensure all of your wishes are met.

At Scott Bloom Law, we are a team of advocates who care, always fighting for what’s best for our clients and their families. With knowledge, experience, and compassion, we strive to find solutions that make the aging process as emotionally and financially easy as possible.

CLIENT Testimonial

Our family had the good fortune to find Scott Bloom.  He was invaluable helping us set up our trust. We had an unexpected health crises and realized that we had nothing in place to protect our children.  Scott explained our options and got the necessary paperwork ready for us to hand to our family, accountant and banks. Scott was absolutely the right attorney at the right time for us. We would highly recommend him and his team.
