In addition to drafting hundreds of Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and Directives to Physicians, Joanne Badeaux was a Hospice volunteer. She sat with patients who were dying and saw, first hand, the family’s use of Medical Powers of Attorney and Directives to Physicians. Because of that, the firm has added or subtracted unique language in the Medical Powers of Attorney and Directives that other attorneys do not. Additionally, most decedents own real estate and Badeaux and Associates has extensive real estate experience.
