Elizabeth (Liz) Hart is a founding partner of Hailey | Hart and specializes in catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, and elder abuse/neglect cases. She spent her first years of law practice defending insurance companies and large corporations in cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, and catastrophic loss. Years ago, Liz switched sides, bringing to bear the valuable insight gained as a defense attorney to effectively represent injured people and their families in federal and state court. This shift in focus has been the most rewarding change of her career. She is excited to continue representing real people, with real problems and losses at Hailey | Hart.

As someone who has experience on both sides, Liz is uniquely qualified to grab the defense's attention to leverage the best possible outcome. She understands that insurance companies and defense lawyers typically see claimants as opportunists. It is essential to hire a lawyer who knows how to gain the trust of the other side to overcome this unfair stigma and achieve the best possible results. 

Having long gravitated to hard work and leadership, Liz was a college athlete at the University of Saint Mary, where she was a starting guard and three-year team captain. After graduating magna cum laude, she attended law school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law where she was inducted into the Order of Barristers, was awarded Dean’s List status, and competed on Trial Advocacy regional and national teams.

Outside the office, Liz loves spending time with her two kids and husband. She enjoys hiking, camping, snowboarding, and trying new restaurants around Denver.
