WILLS, TRUSTS, ESTATE PLANNING, PROBATE AND TRUST ADMINISTRATION ARE THE AREAS OF MY PRACTICE.

My practice is primarily in the fields of estate planning, probate, and trust administration.   What might also be of interest to you is that I have held an AV rating from Martindale Hubble for over 29 years and have been named a "Super Lawyer" in the State of Colorado for over 5 years.  I have also been designated a Top Attorney for the last number of years by members of our local bar association.  Prior to my law career I served 2 years in the Peace Corps in Bolivia where I learned Spanish.

I was admitted to the Colorado Bar in 1969.  Since then I have been very active in the legal community where I have served in various functions, including as President of the El Paso County Bar Association from 2007 to 2008.  I have also served twice as a Vice President of the Colorado Bar Association and on the Colorado Bar Association Board of Governors. 

Moreover, I have been very active in the Colorado Springs community at large, serving on numerous boards.  I helped establish the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, served on its board for over 20 years and as its President for 10 years.    In addition, I sat on the Colorado Springs School Board for over 23 years, served as its President for a number of years, and still sit on the Colorado Springs School Foundation Board.

I am most proud of my relationship with my clients, some of whom I have been representing for more than 40 years.  In my spare time I enjoy traveling, fly fishing, and sports, and spending time with my wife, children, and grandchildren.

Very Satisfied!
My wife and i engaged Larry and his office for the preparation of our wills. He gave us a packet of questions to take home and discuss. We sent the packet back to his Para-Legal (Angelika) and within 2 days, they called to schedule a convenient time to come in and sign the documents. There was way more to think about than a "simple" will. Larry was so very patient with us, and has a great demeanor that helped us understand what we were signing and agreeing to. He made certain that all and any of our questions were answered in terminology that WE could understand. We HIGHLY recommend Larry to anyone that needs a will, or needs to have their will updated. Their office was beautiful and comfortable and everyone there helped to make us feel at ease. Thanks Larry and Angelika!

Highly Recommend
Prepared a very comprehensive and thorough custom estate plan for us. Especially like the Estate Plan Organizer Book prepared specifically for our needs. Took the time to go over every aspect of our plan and answered all our questions. If you want someone that will take care of all your estate planning needs, I would highly recommend Larry Gaddis.
