Not Sure What to do About You or Your Parents' Estate Planning? We Can Give You Peace of Mind!
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.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
CL is that rare professional who both knows the substance and procedure and has the unique skill to communicate it effectively to both clients and other lawyers. I have been favored with learning from him, collaborating with him, and enjoying a fine glass of Tennessee whisky next to him. I heartily endorse him. He has the unusual ability to distill the complex and communicate it with the expertise that makes it memorable. You will know why you are doing what he is advising you to do, and you can be confident that his advice is of the highest caliber, has been tested and proven in the crucible of experience, and will serve you and your family beyond your expectations both now and for many generations into the future. You will not find a more qualified attorney to guide you through the estate planning process, and I strongly urge you to atop procrastinating and contact him today.
