How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Since high school, Attorney James Stiles knew he wanted to be an attorney. But, it wasn't until after he graduated from law school that he chose his area of practice.

A colleague asked Attorney Stiles to explain how veterans could get benefits for long-term care.

He wanted to know, Who is eligible? How do they enroll? And is the paperwork complicated?

After the conversation, Attorney Stiles realized he had a unique combination of extensive knowledge and interest in elder law. Plus, despite how valuable these benefits are, it was clear that many Memphians were struggling to qualify and claim their benefits.

So, Attorney Stiles formed The Stiles Law Firm in Germantown, Tennessee. He created a team of expert financial advisors, senior care managers, and CPA's to protect his clients' investments and preserve their hard-earned income.

Over time, his clients requested services beyond estate planning or probate. They enjoyed having a lawyer who knew them on a personal level. And they wanted to retain a team they could trust with every aspect of their lives.

That is why our tagline, Your Lifelong Advocate, is more than just a catchphrase. It is a commitment to delivering exceptional service that best fits your needs -- throughout every milestone in life.

Stiles can handle a variety of legal services including business law, real estate law, family law, and elder law.
