Blaire Bayliss

Attorney

As a former insurance defense attorney, Blaire experienced first-hand the full extent of what insurance companies will do to avoid paying claims. Now, she uses her insider understanding of the insurance defense industry to fight for her clients and promote justice in the face of the corporations.

Blaire competed in her very first public speaking competition at just twelve years old. Although she didn’t win (or even come close!) that competition awakened a passion inside her. Blaire went on to compete in public speaking and debate competitions for the next twelve years, during which time she won multiple awards and championships. But for Blaire, public speaking wasn’t just about the competitions: it was training for the day when she could use her voice for good.

Blaire obtained her J.D. from the University of Colorado in 2020 and graduated with the distinction Order of Barristers. Shortly after graduation, Blaire started working as an insurance defense attorney at a national-level law firm. But after witnessing the lengths insurance companies would go through to avoid paying legitimate claims, she realized that she couldn’t spend her life nickel-and-diming injured people. Blaire left her job in the insurance defense industry to speak for those who have no voice, and fight for justice on behalf of those being harmed. Now, she is proud to say that she works at Dormer Harpring as an advocate for people, not corporations.

As a Coloradan, Blaire enjoys running, hiking, skiing, and visiting Colorado’s many breweries. In her free time, she loves playing tennis with her husband, cheering for the Colorado Rapids soccer team, and going to see as many Grateful Dead cover bands as she can find.
