About me

Tiffany Ballenger founded Phillips Ballenger Estate Attorneys with partner Christopher Phillips in January of 2013 with the goal of providing clients with effective, knowledgeable, and empathetic counsel for individuals, families, and businesses. 


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, maintenance, and transactional work with Nevada LLCs, Series LLCs, and corporations. 


Tiffany also works on transactional real estate matters, including financially distressed property disposition (short sales, loan modifications, and deed-in-lieu of foreclosures), commercial and residential real estate negotiations, and contract review.


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


Tiffany speaks frequently on legal issues and has been featured as a legal analyst on the Fox New Channel. Tiffany has taught continuing education classes for other attorneys, financial advisors, real estate agents, CPAs, as well as for the National Business Institute.
