Attorney James Stiles helps people in the Mid-South navigate the legal system while offering the most value possible.

After years of practicing law and being a Member of the Memphis Bar Association, Attorney Stiles now assists his clients with starting a business, closing on a house, protecting their investments, finding quality long-term care, and more.

What is a Life Cycle Lawyer?

Attorney James Stiles is the only Life Cycle Lawyer in the Memphis area. He offers a personalized approach to providing legal services to individuals, families, and businesses.

A few years ago, 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, he 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.

But, over time, his clients began requesting 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.

“I was invited to listen to a talk and learn more about Attorney Stiles. But I already knew in my mind I wanted to work with him. In fact, I brought a check to that meeting. It was a relief to find someone who could give me a piece of my life back. He’s personable and listens very well. I felt he connected with our needs -- not just our legal needs but our whole situation with my father.”
