Jess is the managing attorney for Bailey Law Firm. Located in The Woodlands, Texas and serving clients throughout the state, Bailey Law Firm provides comprehensive legal services to both businesses and individuals. Jess focuses her practice on the following areas; entity formation, business general counsel, contract drafting and negotiation, asset protection, and real estate finance and transactions.
Her representation has covered transactions in a variety of industries including: construction; energy; consulting; software and information technology; real estate; healthcare; media and photography; fashion and design; mortgage and banking services; manufacturing; publishing; entertainment and government affairs.
Having previously worked in real estate, mortgage and property management, banking, small business finance, and environmental consulting; Jess developed extensive experience with a diversity of contracts and negotiations. This experience also provided her a greater insight into the many operational issues that small and large businesses face every day. Ultimately this allows her to assess challenges from different viewpoints in order to successfully calculate solutions.
Jess has built a reputation for being an informative, knowledgeable, charismatic and passionate attorney. Clients are represented by a lawyer who understands the real world challenges and pragmatic decisions facing today’s business and real estate professionals. For business succession and personal estate planning, she considers the individual personal interests and varying family dynamics that affect and shape the desired goals along with the effects of the other factors such as tax laws that must be dealt with in achieving those goals.
The details matter in every legal matter. Having a lawyer who excels at giving a truly close read to a contract or statute will help your company focus on what it does best. Jess believes a lawyer should be part of the team in making a business successful, not just an outsider to call after a problem arises.

One of our newest additions, Anton, joined our team in summer 2017.
Having worked as an in-house counsel in Europe for five years, Anton developed an in-depth knowledge of business processes and transactional practices of enterprises of many sizes and forms. Those experiences allowed him a greater insight into the common challenges every entity faces on the daily basis and equipped him with a set of skills necessary to address unique and one-of-a-kind issues that any business faces at some point in its life cycle. Furthermore, Anton firmly believes that every situation is unique, regardless of its commonality, and he tailors his advice accordingly, striving to help the firm’s clients achieve their goals at minimal costs.
International education and work experience exposed Anton to a variety of issues of international private law, mainly in the areas of international sale of goods, cross-border transactions, and international mergers.
Most importantly, just like his colleagues at Bailey Law Firm, Anton believes that a great representation should not be retrospective. That is, an attorney should not be an outside point-of-contact called at the time real problems arise. Instead, the representation should commence as early as possible, preferably at the point of prospective planning and building a business and market strategy. Not only does this make the representation extremely effective; it also helps build a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship between the attorney and her client, based on trust, loyalty, and a common goal of making your business successful.
Apart from the corporate and transactional practice, Anton’s areas of focus include real property, oil and gas (leases and transfers of mineral interests), compliance, administrative law, trusts, trademarks, and banking.
Anton is a graduate of Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia, and holds a Bachelor of Law (LL.B.) degree from Edinburgh University School of Law in Edinburgh, United Kingdom.
Emily is the newest addition to the Bailey Law Firm family, having joined us in the fall of 2017.
Her areas of focus include estate planning and estate administration. She strives to provide her clients with peace of mind and security through a comprehensive estate plan suited to each client’s individual needs.
Having spent time in the criminal law field, Emily understands the personal stakes that are involved in confronting sensitive legal issues. She brings this understanding to her practice of estate planning law by ensuring that she provides a client-centered experience where each client feels involved in and satisfied with the estate planning process. Her meticulous nature and attention to detail enable her to carefully craft estate plans that thoroughly address her clients’ needs and concerns.
Emily’s first goal in working with clients is to have open lines of communication in order to truly understand what her clients wish to accomplish which she views as the foundation of an excellent estate plan. She believes that the best way to plan an estate is through a team-based approach in which she works closely with her clients to develop a well-tailored plan.
Her caring and compassionate nature shines through in her relationships with her clients as she helps them navigate the legal and personal complexities that are sometimes a part of the estate planning or administration process.
Emily graduated with honors from Texas Tech University School of Law in Lubbock, Texas, and was a double major at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in both Political Science and Business Administration.
