Larry Roy Gaddis

About me

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 27 years.  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 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 and served as its President for over 10 years.  My involvement with the foundation continues by my sitting on its Board and a number of its committees and subsidiary boards.  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.
