About Me

Larry Huddleston ("C L" to his golf and fishing buddies) was admitted to the Bar in 1977, and has been an estate planning attorney for 20 years. He was in the first class of Certified Ohio Specialists in Trust, Probate and Estate Planning. He has taught estate planning in almost half the states in America to attorneys, accountants, physicians, and many others in groups from 10 to 1,000. He participates in several professional organizations from trade associations to "think tanks." He is enthusiastic about his work, and intends to keep at it for many years. He carries a single digit golf handicap at Scioto Country Club, is a pretty fair fly fisherman, an almost-passable trap and skeet shooter, a pilot, a still often-successful ski racer, and a bass in the Upper Arlington Lutheran Church choir.


He is a graduate of Portsmouth (Ohio) High School, Muskingum College and Capital University School of Law.  Prior to starting his estate planning career, he was a general practice attorney, litigator, financial regulator, expert witness in "banker misbehavior" cases, and a financial institutions merger and acquisitions consultant.  He lives in Upper Arlington with Debbie, his patient wife of 33 years.  They have two grown daughters of whom he is very proud.
