Tiffany Ballenger Las Vegas Estate Planning

Hi! I’m Tiffany Ballenger Floyd, Estate Planning, Asset Protection, and Business Planning Attorney. 

I'm based in Las Vegas, Nevada (Summerlin) and licensed in both Nevada and California.  My practice areas include all aspects of Wills & Trusts and Estate Planning (including advanced estate planning and planning for LGBTQ+ families), Asset Protection Planning (including design and formation of Nevada Asset Protection Trusts), Business Formation and Planning, and Premarital Agreements

Estate Law is what I know and love - I've practiced exclusively in the areas of estate planning, business planning, + asset protection since 2007.

I’m sure you’re here to find out more about one of these practice areas and to see if I’m the right attorney to help guide you through the process. Good idea.  Choosing an attorney that fits your personality, business, and family structure is a big decision.  

So, here's my story - fair warning, it's wordy, so scroll all the way down to the bullet points if you just want a summary!

My background:

I grew up in southern California as an only child of two amazing parents, Norman and Patti Ballenger.  Norman worked at CBS and Patti was a stay-at-home mom.  Tragically, when I was 15, my father died, suddenly, of a heart attack.  Within a month, we also lost my paternal grandfather and maternal grandmother.  It was a really horrible year.

My family had done everything you’re supposed to with regards to their estate.  They took pains to build up their savings through investing in real estate, stocks, and living within their means.  They also hired an attorney put together an estate plan.  Unfortunately, this estate plan didn't work the way it should have.  In the end, most of the estate was lost through issues that could have been easily avoided with better, more comprehensive, planning. 

I went to law school with the goal of helping families to avoid the pitfalls that my own family faced when we lost my dad & grandparents.  My personal history, along with my legal training, has taught me important lessons to ensure that a family’s planning is handled in the best manner possible, with efficiency, sensitivity, and foresight.

My education + work history:

I earned my undergraduate degree from the gorgeous University of California, Santa Barbara, where I was lucky enough to live on the beach for 4 years.  I received my law degree from the University of San Francisco, where I was lucky enough to live by a decidedly colder & foggier beach for another 3 years.  While in law school, I clerked two different Family Law courts (in San Mateo & Alameda Counties) where I learned a valuable lesson- I detest litigation.  All of the delay tactics, contention, and all-around negativity were simply not for me. 

Right after law school, I took and passed the California Bar, and then moved to Nevada to open a branch of a California Estate Planning law firm (and began studying for the Nevada Bar). Prior to opening Phillips Ballenger, I worked for law firms in the Bay Area of California & in Las Vegas. 

I’m one of the few attorneys that began their law practice in the areas of estate, business & asset protection planning, having practiced continuously in these fields since 2007.  I have also been a member of Wealth Counsel, the nation’s premier estate planning organization, since that time.

What makes Phillips Ballenger ("PB Law") unique:

I met my law partner, Chris Phillips, in 2010 and we decided to make the jump to open our firm in 2012.  You see, we are of the belief that the current legal system is broken in a lot of ways.  I figured that by starting our own law firm I could at least fix the system for my clients… but how?

  • First of all, in 98% of my cases, I don’t bill by the hour.  Why?  Because it sucks- for everyone involved.  I hate tracking every 6 minutes of my time (yes, this is how it’s done) and my clients hate getting a “surprise” bill at the end of the month.  Because I’ve been doing estate & business planning for awhile now, I know how much work I’ll need to do to complete a given task.  So, I pass that advantage on to my clients by offering an upfront, flat-fee billing system.
  • Secondly, I believe in building strong relationships with my clients.  I am not a legal document service or “trust mill”, so I’m not merely drafting your documents, never to see or hear from you again.  I am of the belief that proper estate & business planning involves getting to know an individual/family/business in a very intimate way- I need to know A LOT about you to design a comprehensive plan.  This includes details about your family’s dynamics, your financial details, your short & long-term goals, any potential health issues, etc… Since this type of intimacy takes time, my practice is based on building these relationships, rather than on client volume.  In short, what I help you do is to organize your life.  By getting to know you, I can then analyze your individual situation and design a plan based on your needs and goals.
  • I pride myself on staying connected with my clients, not only during the planning process, but long after, to ensure our plan is working for you!  With many other lawyers/firms, you may sign your estate plan or corporate documents and then stuff them into a drawer for the next 10 years.  I do everything in my power to avoid that, because that sort of “document driven” planning simply doesn’t work!  Why?  Because the law changes, your financial situation changes, your goals change, and your family changes.  As such, I have planned for that eventuality with our optional Concierge Program, to ensure my clients have me “on retainer” and can meet/discuss any updates/changes in their life (as well as within the law). 

Don't take my word for it!

Your PB Law Planning Team:  

Our planning team, comprised of Tiffany, Kat, and Becky believes that one size does NOT fit all (no cookie-cutter form documents here!).  Rather, we serve as your trusted advisor, providing conscious counsel + effective solutions based on your particular needs and goals, helping with:

  • Estate Planning: Wills + Trusts (+ all the rest)... whether you’re brand-new to estate planning, or need to make updates to an existing plan, I offer guidance through an admittedly morbid subject area. I hope that by offering knowledge, insight, and meticulous attention-to-detail in a friendly environment, our clients are able to make the best possible choices for themselves, their families, + their loved ones.

  • Asset Protection Planning: I take a mindful, contentious approach to asset protection planning by designing comprehensive strategies – often involving careful layering of trusts and other entities. The goal isn’t just to merely safeguard my clients’ assets, but to ultimately provide them with a feeling of calm, control, + clarity.
  • Business Creation + Planning: As a business owner myself, I get it, because I’ve stood in your shoes! I’ve worked with all types of businesses and business owners, from startup founders to long-held family businesses, as well as high-net worth owners planning for significant liquidity events.
