Hi! I’m Tiffany Ballenger Floyd - I help clients with estate planning, business planning, + asset protection.

By integrating my bespoke planning philosophy with efficient systems + technology, our ultimate goal is to provide a warm, authentic, + seamless planning experience for our amazing clients.

One-size does NOT fit all: No cookie-cutter form documents here! Rather, we serve as a trusted advisor, providing conscious counsel + effective solutions based on your particular needs + 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 our 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.

Overwhelmed and don't know where to start?   From initial plan design to ongoing counsel + maintenance, let us help guide you through the process.

Incredible Service, Brilliant, Kind, and Great Communicators
My wife and I were looking to learn more about Estate Planning, Asset Protection, and Forming our Family Trust... Well, we didn't need to look any further! Not only did this Firm, Tiffany, and her team exceed our expectations, we were amazed by the level of service, competence, and guidance they provided us. We not only hired them, we will continue to work with them, annually, and refer them any and all who are in need of these or similar services. We highly recommend that you contact them as your first call. You will be happy you did!

Will and Trust
Tiffany and her staff were so pleasant to work with and made a frankly not so fun process actually enjoyable. They were so patient and took the time to answer all of my questions and help guide my husband and I to get all of our affairs in order to help protect our assets for our children. I feel such a sense of relief now that our will and trust are together (and properly funded) and I’m so glad I decided to work with Tiffany on this.

Top Tier Pros
Tiff any and her tear took the time to fully understand our objectives and then created our documents and filed them with the appropriate agencies. They also included step by step instructions of what we needed to do with our bank. They made sure that the job was done right. They also retain records of their work as a backup and guide for our family.

If I could give her 6 stars I would!
Tiffany (and her assistant Donna) have worked endlessly to help us with our needs as her clients. Our needs consist of LLC creation, estate planning, asset protection, and trust review. Her knowledge of all of the above has left us feeling secure with our lives in her hands. She has consistently met our deadlines with efficiency and professionalism while educating us during the whole process. We are so grateful we have her in our lives to guide us!!

Tiffany is a cut above the rest!!!!
I met Tiffany through a referral from a client who told me I wouldn't find a better estate planning attorney, and he was right!!! My husband and I had procrastinated doing our estate plan after our second child was born and just weren't over the moon about any of the previous attorneys we had talked to (including those with a Beverly Hills office address!). Tiffany was extremely relatable, considerate, and thoughtful when it came to discussing each and every aspect of our estate. My husband and I felt at ease despite some of the not so uplifting topics and felt that her advice, recommendations, and strategies were far superior to the previous guidance we had been given. She truly demonstrated foresight, knowledge and experience and managed to put our minds totally at ease. Her staff is warm and friendly and the whole process was completed in a very timely and efficient manner. I couldn't be happier and can't wait to refer all of my friends and clients to her!

Professional and knowlegeable, a very comforting experience.
Tiffany and her team make you feel very comfortable with the whole process of estate planning. This was a first time experience for me and from the time I arrived at her office the level of expertise and professionalism displayed by Tiffany and her assistant Donna was evident. I never felt any pressure to hire her during our consultation but was sold by her knowledge and willingness to answer questions and spend time explaining the process from beginning to end. Overall a very pleasant experience. Thank you Tiffany and Donna.

Excellent service
We hired Tiffany to prepare estate documents for our young family. She has the process down to a science and is very experienced in this area. We appreciated her attention to detail and always promptly responding to our questions. Her staff is wonderful too! It was a painless process and we love the peace of mind that comes with having a solid estate plan in place. I would recommend Tiffany and her team to anyone wishing to create or update their estate plan.

Simply the best
Tiffany and her team helped me through my late father’s trust. It wasn’t a pleasant situation to start with, family ugh, but she made it one and we got the outcome we were hoping for! She’s brilliant and she and her team ALWAYS, return phone calls and emails immediately. My husband and I just hired her to do our Trust and Will. You won’t find a better Lawyer...one who does the greatest job but also one that truly has your best interest at heart.

Tiffany Ballenger Floyd has a LLC Company that is exceptional. Her entire staff harmoniously attends to a Client with respect.
A neighbor referred her to us after expressing their exceptional appreciation of Tiffany's methods for protecting her Client's futures. We met with her and received a much needed updated Estate/Trust Plan. It is not an exaggeration to say that we had no idea that our existing Plan was, at best, lacking in countless ways. Upon Her completion of our Estate Planning Portfolio. We were overcome with gratitude as we realized our future, no matter when or how, that time will inevitably occur; we will be safely at peace. Just knowing every personal and legal instruction is perfectly presented within the Law as well as Tiffany's "Estate Planning Concierge Program". We no longer have to be concerned about "What Are We Suppose To Do Now?" Tiffany has offered to us, honesty, clarity, and Peace of Mind. We highly recomend her and her extremely efficient Staff.

Revocable Trust
In September, I met Tiffany and her staff including Tiffany's assistant Donna for the establishment of a revocable trust. Tiffany came up with, and implemented a comprehensive trust plan to my satisfaction within a timely manner. There were a few minor mistakes which were corrected right away. The entire staff is friendly, taking their time to clearly explain issues and/or answer questions either in person or by phone. Although the total cost for the revocable trust was still higher compared with other lawyers' charges, despite the fact that the consultation fee was subtracted from it, it's worth paying, as the work is done professionally and thoroughly. I trust the company and strongly recommend.

Genuine, smart, and looks out for me
I first hired Tiffany about 5 years ago to help me through a messy short sale. I found her to be incredibly genuine and also very astute. It has always been clear to me that she stays current with the latest legal information and is quick to apply her knowledge to help me. I also admire her for maintaining professional contacts in a variety of fields and offering to put me in touch with other professionals who can potentially build up my personal team. I recently hired her again to provide a comprehensive estate plan for my family. Again, she provided a great deal of insight on issues I never would have considered. Her team is equally great to work with - very friendly, very professional, and very efficient. I fully trust Tiffany and I recommend her without any reservations.

Top Notch Team for your Estate Planning Needs
Tiffany is sharp and savvy who deftly helped us navigate the sometimes uncomfortable topics of estate planning. She listens well and explains information in plain English instead of legalize. We liked the way she lays out your options and the features and benefits, and let's you determine the best choice to meet your needs. Estate planning is personal to Tiffany, so we also found comfort in the advice because it is coming from someone who has walked in the shoes herself.

Professionalism and Client Service at its Best
This attorney knows her stuff! I was impressed with her ability to grasp and fully understand the legal challenges at hand and then navigate smoothly to a solid conclusion. Throughout the entire process, I was informed and up-to-date. All options available were clearly presented. The agreed to plan-of-action was professionally executed. My company is now in the process of transitioning other work to Tiffany Ballenger’s firm.
