Alison Adam-Buskey

Drafting Paralegal

Passionate about environmental issues, I moved from France to the U.S. to enroll at Vermont Law School. I got a master’s degree in Climate Change and Environmental Law, then graduated from my LL.M. in American Legal Studies.

My husband and I live in Bozeman, MT. I am honored to be the Drafting Paralegal and a stakeholder with The Rains Law Firm. I accompany our clients through their funding process, and I coordinate that process with other professionals in the estate planning sphere.

I love the daily conversations with our clients, and I enjoy making sure everything is perfectly orderly. That is what lawyers do, right?

Alongside my role with The Rains Law Firm, I assist The Ranger – a bike event in Vermont – in implementing environmentally responsible business practices. I am also helping my sister with her new French Bakery.

The outdoors is my backyard: from biking, hiking, horseback riding, swimming, floating down the river, to reading and baking outside, I try to connect with nature as much as I can. If you want to visit Montana, please reach out to me: I would love to be your guide!

Scheduling Coordinator

My role at The Rains Law Firm involves scheduling and helping clients through the engagement process, which is never dull and always rewarding. I love helping people, especially in the context of purposeful estate planning. Because family is important to me, I embrace our firm’s mission of helping clients invest in their family’s future by passing on family values, strengthening family relationships, and maximizing their potential.

My professional background includes – we will just say many years – in client account management, recruiting, news production and commercial writing. With a degree in Mass Communications from the University of Denver, I started my career in print media, which perfectly combined three of my favorite things: research, interviewing people, and writing.

I had first developed those skills while completing a legal internship for a Denver District Court judge, which also sparked my interest in the legal field. Coming full circle with the opportunity to work at a law firm is great, but I especially appreciate that The Rains Law Firm intentionally creates a positive work environment by developing a team-spirited, mission-driven, values-centered culture with a servant-leadership management style. That hugely reflects on how we as stakeholders treat our clients and professional partners.

As a Colorado native, I enjoyed exploring the mountains and scenic spots in my home state while growing up. Not that I ever really grew up, but now I spend most of my free time with my wonderful husband, adult children, and big, extended family. I also love to laugh, and while I take my work seriously, I will never take myself or others too seriously. Life is too short!

Legal Assistant

At the Rains Law Firm, I spend most of my time working on client’s estate planning binders, keeping track of legal documents, checking in on current clients to stay connected, and always building a strong collaborative bond with Alison, Bronwyn, and Brandon. Any of the four of us will tell you, family is our top priority. This is the reason that purposeful estate planning is a passion for all of us.

I only recently started my professional career after being a stay-at-home mom for 6 years. I started out in sales at a startup software company, but decided to change direction after a group layoff during the Covid-19 pandemic. I could not have been more blessed to have found Brandon and The Rains Law Firm, or to have been given the chance to join this fantastic team. I have a degree in English-Language/Literature from Texas Tech University. A degree in English helps me fit in quite nicely at our firm with the heavy amount of reading, writing, and attention to detail it takes to make things run smoothly.

Outside of work, I am a mom of 3 young kiddos (and a precious kitty cat). We love exploring new places and try to be outside almost always. As an individual, I love to listen to music, cook (and eat, of course), exercise, travel, and spend time with people who bring out the best in me. I am genuinely fueled by helping others and seeing people happy. The fact that I get to do that day after day with my work is immeasurably rewarding.

Funding Paralegal

My role as the Funding Paralegal at Rains Law Firm is to ensure your trust is fully funded. As a former estate administration paralegal, I understand the importance of a properly funded trust. My job is to review all accounts you hold individually and work with the institutions to change ownership from you as an individual to your newly created trust. I am passionate about helping you complete the final step in your purposeful estate planning. I am very family oriented, which is why I embrace the firm’s mission, especially when it come to strengthening family relationships.

I graduated from Colorado State University with a B.A. in Political Science. I received my paralegal certificate through the American Bar Association – approved Paralegal Certificate Program at Arapahoe Community College. I have seven years of experience as a paralegal in various areas of law including Probate, Eminent Domain, Premise Liability and Employment law.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two dogs. During the winter and spring, you will find me snowboarding at Keystone with my brother. In the fall you will find me at Canvas Stadium cheering for the Rams, with my family and best friend. Throughout the summer, my husband and I enjoy trying different breweries and spending time with our family and friends.
