ADVOCATING FOR JUSTICE
Timothy Bussey of The Bussey Law Firm, P.C. relishes the
fiduciary duty of representing Coloradans who are accused of
crimes or injured by the wrongdoing of others. Waging battle
on behalf of clients whose backs are to the wall takes a special
mindset. In more than 25 years as such an advocate, Bussey has
earned a reputation for zealousness, innovation and winning.
Always ready to take on challenges for the benefit of his clients,
Bussey has garnered national attention for his broadside
attacks on the shoddy science at two of Colorado’s state-operated forensic laboratories. These labs withered under
the scrutiny and altogether discontinued blood testing in DUI
cases. The U.S. Supreme Court noticed such results and cited
them as the chief evidence to support its conclusion that states
must continue to afford the accused genuine opportunities
to confront and cross-examine the government’s laboratory
scientists in criminal cases.
In 2015, Bussey gained international attention for tenacity as a
plaintiff in the English courts by unmasking a foreign fraudster
and winning a landmark defamation ruling and a £100,000
judgment. Prior to this, it was virtually unknown whether or how
or when anonymous, cross-border defamation in the internet
space would be rectified.
When there are no helpful precedents to be found, a lawyer must
seek to blaze new territory. This can be uncomfortable for many
attorneys, but it is ingrained behavior for Bussey, a trial lawyer
who has addressed scores of juries in civilian courts and courts-
martial. Bussey’s extensive trial experience and comfort in the
courtroom means his clients benefit from the full spectrum of
options when he negotiates settlements. Stalwart negotiation
is something Bussey has practiced since 1991, when he cut his
professional teeth while on active duty as a prosecutor in the U.S.
Air Force Judge Advocate General’s Corps.
Bussey is a requested speaker at legal conferences and has
presented locally, nationally and in Canada. He is a published
co-author of six books. His learning and mentoring will always
continue. In 2015, he enjoyed studying and gaining certification as
a lawyer-scientist by the American Chemical Society. He remains
the only Colorado lawyer to have earned this designation.
For Bussey’s superior advocacy, he has been named to The
National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers and he has
earned an AV Preeminent rating by Martindale-Hubbell.
Repeatedly, and again in 2017, his fellow attorneys in El Paso
County have cited him in Colorado Springs Style magazine to
Top Attorneys in Colorado Springs.
