Alisa Gray is an MLTT Lead Teacher and an AV-rated partner at Tiffany & Bosco, P.A. in Phoenix, Arizona, where she practices in the area of probate-related litigation and mediation, representing corporate trustees, professional fiduciaries, and individuals in complicated or contested guardianships, conservatorships, estates, and trusts. Alisa also routinely serves as a mediator or neutral, either privately-retained or appointed by the court.
Throughout her 26+ year career, Alisa has served on many state-wide councils and boards, including as chair of two State Bar of Arizona sections: the Mental Health and Elder Law Section (now, the Elder Law, Mental Health and Special Needs Planning Section) and the Probate and Trust Law Section. She served as co-chair for the Continuing Legal Education Committee and, after a 3 year hiatus, she was asked to serve another term on the CLE Committee.

Alisa has served as a judge pro tem for the Maricopa County Superior Court and is a frequent lecturer on matters related to probate, ethics, stress management and mindfulness.
As she developed her law practice, Alisa became concerned about the lack of contentment and balance in her own and her colleagues’ personal and professional lives. She began to practice yoga, which has helped her gain strength and flexibility – physically, mentally and spiritually. In 2010, Alisa completed a 200-hour yoga teacher program and is a certified yoga instructor at Desert Song in Phoenix. She frequently offers yoga instruction and insights to lawyers, judges and other professionals in the legal world. In 2017, she became a certified Yoga Nidra Facilitator and completed the advance training in 2018.
Alisa has organized and presented at numerous work-life balance seminars and workshops for attorneys, judges and other members of the legal profession. Such programs include “Beyond Burnout”, which was presented in 2011 and reprised for the 2012 Arizona State Bar Convention. She was also the co-chair of the 2013 Convention program, “Welcoming Wellness, Health and Happiness into Your Law Practice and Your Life;” the 2014 Convention Program, “Grit, Grace and Gratitude: The Legal Recipe for Well-Being;” and the 2016 Convention Program, “The Future, Now – the Art and Science of the Mindful Lawyer.” For 2018, she will chair the program “Finding the Path to Lawyer Well-Being – Dealing with Unhealthy Stress and Increasing Resilience and Compassion.”
Alisa has been on the Advisory Board for Warrior One since 2011. In 2017, she was asked to join the Mentors’ Circle of the Teachers Division of the Mindfulness in Law Society (“MILS”) and, in 2018, became a member of the Advisory Board for MILS.

Alisa lives in central Phoenix with her husband, Jim Fassold, their two college-aged children (when they’re around), and their rescue dog, Leroy.
