Tara Bailes aims to help her clients with their legal needs so they can focus on running their business and doing what they love. She enjoys stepping in and taking some of the stress away from business leaders by working on a matter from initial investigation to resolution.

She has significant experience litigating matters related to different industries as she has represented a diverse range of clients including contractors, manufacturers, retailers, universities, developers, loan servicers, communication companies, financial institutions, and content creators. Tara learns her clients’ businesses so she can provide advice and representation uniquely tailored to each client’s specific needs and goals.

Getting involved in the community is very important to Tara. She enjoys staying active and trying new fitness classes. In her free time, she likes to take advantage of all the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer and loves to ski, hike, and run.
