Timothy Bussey Graduates from Acclaimed Trial Lawyer’s CollegeTrial Lawyer’s College, or TLC, is “committed to training a new breed of lawyer,” one who fights for justice in his own passionate voice. TLC’s curriculum focuses on psychodrama—that is, taking words and putting them into action. This approach is designed to create a lawyer who can use stories to connect with an audience. Top trial attorneys from across the country make up TLC’s faculty. These unparalleled advocates teach attendees to understand their clients and their stories, and seek justice in a court of law for those who are poor, injured, forgotten, voiceless, and defenseless.

TLC founder Gerry Spence is a legend in his own right. An attorney who has never lost a criminal defense case; he is perhaps best known for representing whistleblower Karen Silkwood’s family in a civil suit against Kerr-McGee Corporation. This story was memorialized in the 1983 film Silkwood, starring Meryl Streep. In 2009, Mr. Spence was inducted into the American Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame, which hosts luminaries like John Adams and Clarence Darrow.

Mr. Bussey entered the realm of criminal defense for a similar reason—to defend the accused against powerful interests, including the full weight of the United States government. Mr. Bussey takes pride in earning each client’s trust. A person accused by the government often finds the deck is stacked against him or her. When facing the seemingly endless resources of the government, a defense attorney needs to be sharper and tougher than the opposition to be successful, and Mr. Bussey thrives when facing such pressure.

In addition to this latest achievement, Mr. Bussey has also earned the ACS Forensic Lawyer–Scientist designation in the state of Colorado. These extensive trainings are only part of the reason why he has a proven track record of success across the state. It comes as no surprise that Mr. Bussey has been named a “Top Attorney in Colorado” by the Denver Post.
