About Us

We imagine a world where the legal system serves as a platform to allow our community to thrive and helps us improve the lives of our clients and colleagues.

Lyons Gaddis was founded in 1972 by a group of lawyers who were also business and community leaders, with a mission to provide excellent legal services to the growing area of Northern Colorado. Over 50 years later, the team at Lyons Gaddis continues to bring experience to bear in service to local government, businesses, families, and individuals in the greater Denver area and throughout Colorado. Our primary objective is to deliver outstanding results for each of our clients in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.

Our lawyers are well known, respected counselors, litigators, and advisors in Northern Colorado and throughout the state. Our diverse experience includes a past President of the Longmont Community Foundation, a member of the Boulder County Business Hall of Fame, the Vice President of the Colorado Bar Association, and a former chairperson of the Boulder County Planning Commission. Our lawyers are regularly invited to speak at seminars and educate other attorneys and industry representatives about important and constantly evolving legal issues.

Also dedicated to excellence outside of the office, our attorneys include an extreme skier, an opera singer, a college professor, and an international election observer.

Family is important to the firm and our employees, with annual events which include a summer Rockies game, participation in Race for the Cure and A Taste of Louisville, and a year-end holiday party.

Over 50 Years of Excellence

In 1972, the Longmont law firm of Grant, McCarren and Bernard formed the foundation for Lyons Gaddis, which has grown from three attorneys to 27, working in a multitude of legal areas. Today, as innovators and advisors, we focus on continuing and establishing genuine client relationships and providing results-oriented, cost-effective counsel.

Building Trust Through Client Service

Many of our clients today have been clients for over 50 years. We take pride in the confidence and trust our clients place in us, and we strive to treat every client as if they are our best client. Our attorneys understand the financial and business pressures that you face, and focus on creating strategies and solutions to resolve your case or transaction quickly and efficiently.

Giving Back to Our Community

At Lyons Gaddis, we not only serve our clients but we serve our community. Our employees volunteer for a variety of causes, including Habitat for Humanity, Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center, Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, and many more.
