About Me

Tiffany N. Ballenger founded Phillips Ballenger with partner Christopher Phillips in 2013.

Tiffany focuses her practice in the areas of estate planning, including revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, wills, powers of attorney, health care directives, and Nevada Asset Protection Trusts. She also handles business and corporate planning, including formation and transactional work with Nevada LLC’s and corporations.  Tiffany assists with real estate transactional matters, including financially distressed property disposition (short sales, loan modifications, and deed-in-lieu of foreclosures), commercial and residential real estate negotiations. Finally, she represents homeowner borrowers in the Nevada Foreclosure Mediation program.

While in law school, Tiffany served as a clerk for the Superior Courts in the San Mateo and Alameda counties of California.  Prior to starting Phillips Ballenger, Tiffany practiced estate planning, asset protection, and real estate in the Bay Area of California and Las Vegas.   


Tiffany lectures frequently on legal issues and is an approved instructor for continuing education classes for other attorneys, financial advisors, real estate agents, CPAs, and the National Business Institute.  When she’s not practicing law, Tiffany enjoys teaching Barre fitness classes at Barre Las Vegas, reading, traveling, and wine tasting.
