About Elizabeth

Learn Elizabeth’s areas of practice.

Hailey | Hart PLLC is an award-winning women-owned law firm with a proven track record of excellent results. We are a team of highly intelligent and skilled litigators. We approach each case as a team and provide top quality representation. 

Liz Hart is a founding member and fierce advocate of Hailey | Hart. She spent her first years of law practice defending insurance companies and large corporations in cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, and catastrophic loss. Liz shielded insurance companies and corporations from paying out millions of dollars in personal injury claims. In some of her landmark cases, she was responsible for the complete dismissal of an $11,000,000 default judgment entered against her corporate client and obtaining defense verdicts at trial.

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.

“The decision of selecting an attorney for your case is the process of selecting someone who will act as an extension of yourself. Insurance companies are for-profit companies that generally perceive claimants as opportunists. In turn, the insurance companies’ goals involve paying out as little as possible and searching for ways to deconstruct and devalue a claim. It is essential to hire a lawyer who is uniquely qualified to gain the trust of the other side and defeat the unfair stigma attached to personal injury claimants. I know how to present you as a human with legitimate damages and losses whose life has been permanently altered. As someone who has experience on both sides of the fence, I am uniquely qualified to grab the defense’s attention to leverage the best possible outcome.”

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.

Trustworthy and Caring
Working with Liz was a wonderful experience. She provided me with excellent guidance throughout the stressful process of taking on a big insurance company. Liz explained things in a way that I could easily understand. Her knowledge and compassion was very helpful at such a difficult time. She understood my desired outcome and worked diligently on my behalf. I was always able to trust that Liz had my best interest at heart. The integrity and kindness that Liz shows her clients is unparalleled. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Liz to my friends and family.

Five stars is hardly enough
From our initial inquiry to the successful resolution of our case, Liz met (and routinely exceeded) every expectation that we had. Not only did she take a case that was uniquely complex and frankly not large enough to entice most firms, she handled it with remarkable attention, integrity, and skill. Her working knowledge of the insurance industry and law was as impressive as it was invaluable, and under her direction we were able to resolve our case quicker and with far less expense than anticipated. Moreover, her ability to clearly and patiently communicate the procedures and options along the way made the process as smooth and stressless as we could have possibly hoped for. I can honestly not think of a single thing she could have done better. After decades of working with attorneys in various applications and circumstances, I can honestly say that Liz Hart is a standout attorney, and I cannot recommend her strongly enough.

Sucessful Slip and fall case
Liz represented me in a slip and fall case. She was outstanding. From the early stages, while still in pain and rehabilitating, she was supportive and compassionate. As I was unable to walk for almost four months, this impacted my work severely, as my profession is a very physical job. Several times I just wanted to drop the whole thing. She was like a good coach as we worked as a team. She educated me about the process and was diligent about collecting the data to prove our case. She was really great maintaining calm and confidence when I was discouraged. She has a very proficient knowledge of the law and the insurance business as well, which makes her ability as legal counsel unique and strong. She successfully settled our case even among the challenges of working during a pandemic crisis.

Could not be happier
Ms. Hart and her staff exceeded my expectations! I was apprehensive in seeking an attorney to represent me and am beyond grateful that I did and for the conscientious care that she devoted to my case. I sincerely appreciate Ms. Hart's genuine compassion, professionalism, confidence and knowledge.

Fantastic!
If you are looking for a compassionate, honest, hardworking, intelligent lawyer and his team, then look no further. The whole team have worked so hard for me after my car accident. As a personal injury case, they had so much knowledge to help me with my emotional up and downs, my injuries and my preexisting conditions. These people are the bull dogs in the industry and know what they are doing!!

Most Compassionate Attorney in Colorado
Liz assisted me for years as I recovered from and went through a personal injury lawsuit caused by a drunk driver. Liz was extremely empathetic and supportive-- always checking in on my health and recommending the best health care providers in the area. Not only did Liz care about winning the lawsuit, but she cared about my personal recovery process as well. Liz was extremely communicative with me through it all, prioritizing my needs and desires. Ultimately, Liz and her team won the case for me with the best results possible. Liz is one of the best attorney's in Colorado; I highly recommend her for her experience and expertise in personal injury/car accident cases.

Intelligent, caring and determined lawyor won our case
I was the victim in a car accident while pregnant and I couldn’t have had a better lawyer to help me through the process. She was there for me during all my court proceedings, handled the details behind the scenes so I didn’t have to worry about them, and even located a medical professional who specializes in cases like mine to provide necessary information on my injuries. This process took over two years due to other factors, and any time my mind started to wonder if there were any changes yet, Liz would send me a helpful email with an update. I appreciated how she kept in touch and I could feel she really cared about how my baby and I were doing. We were able to obtain the maximum allowed for my case and I don’t believe this would have been possible without the dedication and persistence of my attorney Liz.

MUST READ!!!
Hi, my name is James and I am not usually the type of person to leave reviews but after working with Todd and his team, I am excited to share this life changing case with you! I was in a car accident in Windsor, Colorado and ended up herniating the lower disc in my back. Over the next 2 years, the Tenge law firm did a great job keeping me informed while they took care of all the details behind the scenes. After everything was delt with, Todd and his team got me a total settlement of 250,000 dollars!!! I dont know how he did it! But they did an amazing job and my life has been changed for the better ever since. Dont look any further, the Tenge law firm will end up getting you more than anyone else!

A Tough Time. A Wonderful Experience.
I was severely injured when a kitchen floor collapsed beneath me. Initially, I contacted the responsible insurance companies, the property owner, and the remodeling contractor. Everyone denied that my injuries were their fault and refused to accept any liability. Wow! Then, I found the Tenge Law Firm in Boulder, CO (Todd Tenge, Liz Hart, and Nina Tarsi). They felt that I had a good legal case and agreed to represent me. It took almost exactly two years from the date of my injuries to work through the case. But, Todd, Liz, and Nina prevailed on my behalf. Those responsible were made to accept their liability. I just received a settlement that exceeded my expectations. What can I say except thank you so much to the Tenge Law Firm for being my advocate in this matter. They were professional, persistent, tough, and kind. Their representation allowed me to heal and ultimately to recoup some of the losses that were caused by contractor negligence. I strongly recommend Liz Hart. If you ever need legal representation for injuries that you suffered, she should be your first and only stop.

Knowledgeable First-Class Attorney & Law Firm with Closing Expertise
I am extremely pleased with the outcome, support, and professionalism provided by Liz Hart and the staff at Tenge Law Firm in my case. Todd, Liz, and Nina were exceptional in keeping me informed every step of the way while answering any questions that would arise. Tenge Law Firm’s constant attention to my case allowed me to focus on what’s most important to me, healing and recovering. I had never needed an attorney and had no idea how to go about finding the right one to represent me. After doing an online search and reading countless reviews, Tenge Law Firm really stood out above all others. With their hard work and dedication to my case, Liz Hart and Tenge Law Firm proved to me that they are truly deserving of a perfect rating. I would highly recommend Liz and the Tenge Law staff!
