Biography

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: 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, me and my team at Phillips Ballenger Estate Attorneys can help guide you through the process.

Legal Answers
Q. Hello - I'm trying to find a document that states I have a DBA in Clark County - State of Nevada. Where should I look?
A: Hi There, Here's a link to search for your DBA (aka FFN, Fictitious Firm Name), in Clark County, NV: https://clerk.clarkcountynv.gov/AcclaimWeb/Fbn/SearchTypeFbnByName Link to statutes: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/nrs/NRS-602.html Hope this helps point you in the right direction, best of luck!
Q. What is the difference between being an interested person in a trust and a non interested person.
A: Interested "person" may be the grantor (creator) of the trust, a trustee and/or a beneficiary. Interested "trustee"- The term Interested Trustee means a Trustee who: is a transferor or beneficiary; is related or subordinate to a transferor or beneficiary; can be removed and replaced by a transferor with either the transferor or a party who is related or subordinate to the transferor; or can be removed and replaced by a beneficiary with either the beneficiary or a party who is related or subordinate to the beneficiary. For purposes of this Subsection, transferor means a person who transferred property to the trust during that person’s lifetime, including a person whose disclaimer resulted in property passing to the trust. A person is only a transferor during his or her lifetime. Beneficiary means a person who is or may become eligible to receive income or principal from the trust under the terms of the trust, even if this person has only a remote contingent remainder interest in the trust, but not if the person’s only interest is as a potential appointee under a power of appointment. Related or subordinate is used as defined in Internal Revenue Code Section 672(c). DISCLAIMER: My response is general & isn’t legal advice. I’m not your lawyer because I answer this question. It’s not possible to provide specific legal advice online, for a multitude of reasons, most importantly a thorough understanding of your facts/situation/context & goals, etc. Please do not rely on this response without seeking legal counsel particular to your situation.
Q. In the state of Nevada, will filing a Homestead Exemption do anything if our home is in our Living Trust?
A: Nevada homestead exemption protects the equity in your primary residence (w/ proper homestead filing) up to $550K- cheap & easy protection! A revocable living trust typically does not provide ANY asset protection to the creators of the trust, so it's probably wise to file your homestead. It can be done when a home is owned by a revocable trust.
