What Makes Us Unique?
Joanne Badeaux’s, the Senior Partner’s, prior work experience and volunteer work have given her
keen insight which is unique from other law firms. Ms. Badeaux adds her wealth of knowledge
to Badeaux and Associates in the three areas of law which the firm practices.
Because Real Estate, Wills, Probate and Business Law touch most clients in their lives, Badeaux and Associates is a one-stop shop for their clients as those issues arise in their lives.
Related to Ms. Badeaux’s Real Estate Law and Business Law experience prior to opening her law firm in Clear Lake City, Texas in 1986, Ms. Badeaux worked for law firms in Houston, Texas, whose clients purchased and sold Real Estate and Businesses. Further, Joanne Badeaux worked for Stewart Title Company examining titles. Since 1986, for its clients in the Clear Lake City and surrounding areas, Badeaux and Associates uses its Real Estate and Business Law backgrounds on a daily basis for clients who buy or sell Residential or Commercial Real Estate; for clients who own Limited Liability Companies; and for Wills and Probate clients who are leaving Real Estate to their heirs after they pass away.
For Powers of Attorney and Directives to Physician, Joanne Badeaux had the distinctive experience of volunteering for hospice where she saw families using Medical Powers of Attorney and Directives to Physicians for their loved ones who were hospitalized. From that experience, Badeaux and Associates includes unique provisions in its Medical Powers of Attorney and Directives to Physicians for the purpose of easing the family member’s use of those documents at the critical time of end of life decisions.
With the hundreds of Wills and Trusts it has drafted for its Clear Lake City and surrounding areas clients, it is infrequent for Badeaux and Associates to need a tax attorney; however Badeaux and Associates joined with an attorney who is board certified in Estate Planning and Probate, and who has an LLM in tax law for the rare occasion when clients’ estates have tax consequences beyond credit shelter trusts and life insurance trusts.
Badeaux and Associates Representative client facts are:
- Individuals buying or selling a home for their growing family who need Real Estate advice, and who also need Wills and Trusts in which to appoint guardians for their children, or provide creditor protection.
- Business Owners in manufacturing, retail, high tech, or development who own or lease Commercial Real Estate, and who also need complex Estate Planning to save Estate Taxes and coordinate multiple beneficiaries.
Even though the clients’ facts seem complex or confusing to them, Badeaux and Associates can achieve the client’s goals in an orderly, seamless manner.
