Attorney Profile

Gayle Corley focuses her law practice on estate planning, elder law and probate.  She enjoys interacting with clients from across Arkansas and their family members, and creating wills, trusts, powers of attorney and other estate planning documents tailored to meet their specific needs, both simple and complex.  Gayle’s elder law practice includes assisting clients with Medicaid and Veterans pension eligibility – whether in a crisis or with planning techniques that protect assets from the costs of long-term care and unscrupulous people who prey on the elderly.  As part of her asset protection efforts Gayle often drafts and advises clients regarding prenuptial agreements and special needs trusts.  Early in her career Gayle represented numerous clients with respect to commercial real estate acquisition, sale, development, leasing and financing and she continues to assist clients with real estate transactions, including leases.  

Gayle is licensed to practice law in Arkansas and New York.  She is a twice former Chair of the Elder Law Section of the Arkansas Bar and has planned and spoken at Continuing Legal Education events in the areas of estate planning and elder law.  She also speaks to employee groups, and clients of financial advisors and insurance agents, about estate planning issues and probate avoidance.  Gayle prides herself on ethical practices, prompt and thorough communication with clients, and advising clients as she would if they were her own family.  When away from the office Gayle enjoys travel, film and live theater, watching college football, jigsaw puzzles and hand crafts, and spending time with her family, friends and two dogs.
