He's worked with large, small, and medium size businesses all across the great state of Texas, including: professionals, artisans, artists, corporations, and family businesses. Mr. Breeden is board certified in Consumer & Commercial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Not board certified in any other area. As well as a skilled mediator and trial attorney - each of these diverse experiences benefits his clients and their businesses.
SELECTING AN ENTITY
One of the first steps for Texas small business owners is to select the proper entity for your business. Many factors will be important to determine which option is the best for you, including: how many partners you have, the size of your business, the industry you plan to work in, your tax strategy and income level, among other things. The main purpose for creating a legal entity is to shield yourself and your family from liability. Creating an entity will create a separate legal entity that will separate your personal finances, income, and liability from that of your business. You might choose an LLC, PLLC, Partnership, or Corporation. Ensuring that your business entity is setup properly with the State of Texas is essential in ensuring that you are protected.
ONGOING BUSINESS PROCEDURES
Once we help you properly choose and setup your business entity, the next step will be educating you about the maintenance and upkeep required to keep your business in good legal standing. Depending on your legal entity of choice, this might include annual meetings, meeting minutes, stock certificates, and owner records. Learning about these important steps and consistently applying them to your business will help make sure your entity protects you the way you're expecting.
Your business entity of choice also has many tax implications for you and your business. Businesses are taxed differently based on their legal structure. For instance, a pass-through tax might be available to LLCs and certain Corporations who elect to be taxes as S-Corps. Leon Breeden is not a tax attorney, though he does work with your tax adviser to integrate the best strategy for your business.

LISTEN TO UNDERSTAND
Have you ever walked into a professional’s office and felt like you could hardly get a word in? Did you wonder whether he/she preferred listening to him/herself talk, rather than helping you with your problem.
After leaving our office, you’ll feel just the opposite. In our experience, the best lawyering happens when attorneys and clients have an open, honest dialogue. This starts when you visit our offices for the first time and we listen to understand your fears, facts, and goals. We’re here for you and that starts on day one.
Straight Talk Strategy
One of the best things about growing up in Texas is learning the art of what we call “Straight Talking.” This means communicating clearly, honestly, and with purpose. Living up to the maxim “Your word is your bond,” is the standard by which we operate at the Leon Breeden Law Firm.
Whether in mediation, negotiations, trial, or a simple first consultation, you can expect your attorney to help you make the best decision for yourself, your family, and your business.
Best Decision, BEST TIME
Our proudest moments are the collection of comments from former clients who state that they felt Mr. Breeden had their best interests in mind no matter what - that he helped them negotiate and stay out of court when he thought that was best - or fought tirelessly when it was time for trial - or given him/her advice that lasted a lifetime. Our focus: Making the best decision at the best time.
There is no “one size fits all” approach to complex legal cases. Every person, every family, every business is different. Our familiarity with the court system, legal consequences, and business decisions gives our clients a great foundation for practical decision making.
Mr. Breeden is a time tested litigation attorney with hundreds of trials under his belt. As an attorney with multiple practice areas, his diversity of experience makes him a great advocate for his clients. One client mentioned that he felt like “he was Leon’s only client.”
Toughness is a virtue in Texas. Legal matters can be trying, which is why you’ll want someone focused, gritty, and tough minded on your side.
