Honesty, Fairness, & Human Decency Working With Liz Smith

undefinedLiz Smith

Legal Assistant

My name is Liz Smith, and I am known by my friends, family, and coworkers as a “big fan of rules, fairness, and human decency.” I felt drawn to a career at Busch Law Offices due to the law firm’s reputation for greatness and focus on client care. We are a diverse group of personalities and opinions who work ethically as a team for our clients and also for each other.

Through my time here, I have come to appreciate the potential greatness of the practice of law in general. I have learned more intimately how injuries and disabilities can dramatically impact a person’s physical, emotional, and financial well-being. I try to carry this knowledge into the world by putting myself in another person’s shoes and showing kindness even — and especially — if I do not know or understand their circumstances.

I am courteously persistent in getting information and results. I am open-minded and I often view our cases from both our position and the adversarial one. I take a lot of pride in doing good work and I truly value the opportunity to help our clients by offering a human connection as they navigate processes that often feel harsh and impersonal. As part of the Busch Law Offices team, I welcome opportunities to learn new information, skills, and to practice being a good human.

History & Personal Life

I was raised in Loveland and graduated from Loveland High School. I began my work at Busch Law Offices in 2003 as a fill-in for the full time staff and became an official regular in 2008. My passions are my family, friends, children, animals, music, reading, skiing, tennis, the outdoors, and traveling.

  • You were a God send

    “Thanks Brett....what you did for is the last 2 years were a God send and above and beyond your call of duty having to put up with me....lol and all my confusion and patience on your end. You and your staff are wonderful people that I believe truly want to help and not just for the money. It feels like I list a friend after closing my case and no more communication. You will always be a good memory. If you treat everyone like you did me you will always be a success. Merry Christmas ”

  • The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made.

    “The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made. Brett Busch was a top-notch Attorney and represented me during the three year legal process with Workers comp as well as a personal injury claim. During these three years he guided me through the process to maximize my claim. He kept me well informed and was prompt to return my calls or emails whenever I had a question or concern. Deidra Deery , Brett's Paralegal at the Firm , was more than helpful anytime I needed assistance. As a matter of fact everyone I spoke to at the Busch Law Firm was kind and caring any time I was in contact with. This Law Firm and Brett were always professional and most importantly effective in resolving my legal issues.”

  • I 100% recommend this firm.

    “Where do I begin? The process is unbelievably long. That said, I can't imagine doing this without legal representation and assistance. I applied for Social Security Disability benefits in July 2009. I was denied by Social Security in October 2009. I immediately filed an appeal online. By the time I heard back from Social Security in December 2010 I had pretty much forgotten about my appeal. My case for appeal was set for June 1, 2011. Social Security said I could represent myself, or obtain a private practice lawyer or a lawyer from a pool of government lawyers in Fort Collins. Needless to say, I was so overwhelmed I was not very optimistic about any option. I procrastinated until March, when I attempted to contact the government agency in Fort Collins. We played phone tag, and I was not impressed. I just happened to see in the Loveland Reporter Herald "Mark Your Calendar" section, that there was a seminar on options for your Social Security appeal. I went, even though I was told the seminar was full, because time was quickly slipping away. Words, though, don't describe my relief to find that the meeting answered all my questions. There was no pressure to sign up with Busch Law Offices. Brett patiently answered every question, and was very kind and empathetic. Because my hearing was quickly coming up, I received an immediate meeting with Brett. Here is the most important thing: I don't look ill or disabled. He took the time to read my medical reports, he asked pertinent questions and he listened. When we agreed to work together, he again patiently and simply explained everything before I signed. There were no surprises. Lynne, his assistant, quickly organized all my medical records. Whenever I called, her calming and cheerful voice eased my mind. If she did not have the answer to questions, she conferred with Brett and always returned phone calls in a very timely manner. Brett sent me to the proper physicians. The day before my hearing, we spent almost three hours going over reports, facts, how to answer questions at the hearing, even how to dress. We were very well prepared. The day of my appeal, Brett calmed me by talking to me about anything but the hearing. It worked. He presented my case simply and efficiently. I was at ease, and we won. On a personal note, Brett is an exceptional young lawyer. Social Security Disability is a very difficult and emotional arena. Brett worked and spoke like a seasoned veteran. As for Lynne, she is simply the best. I 100% recommend this firm.”
