Douglas P. Ley

Attorney / Owner

After 15 years of navigating the complexities of a family business, Doug made a career change and entered the financial services industry. Doug’s financial services practice evolved into the area of special needs estate planning for families with special needs children and Doug transitioned this practice into planning for the senior market.

Doug’s latest endeavor involved becoming an attorney and he now practices elder law in Wisconsin. His estate planning practice uses personalized wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and other documents to address the elder law issues of asset protection, Medicaid, and Veterans Benefits. Doug enjoys presenting estate planning workshops for the public along with specialty workshops for financial services representatives.

Doug’s passion is helping families with special needs children. He spent seven years as an Advanced Markets Manager for a top United States insurance company and State Representative for a Division of Estate Planning for Special Kids.

Doug is a Vietnam-era veteran, having served honorably from 1972-1976, and he takes special pleasure in helping veterans of foreign wars and disabled vets fight for their benefits. He is an accredited attorney with the US Veterans Administration.

Doug and his wife Donna live in the Janesville, Wisconsin area. When not reading tax law books, Doug enjoys golfing and tournament bass fishing. With four daughters and one son, they balance their time with family and grandchildren.
