Gordon J. Williams has been practicing in Colorado since 1994. He serves clients throughout Colorado, but most clients are in El Paso, Pueblo, and Teller Counties. Mr. Williams is a member of the Colorado Bar Association and the El Paso County Bar Association. He is a past chair of the Colorado Bar Association’s Trust and Estate Section’s Statutory Revisions Committee and a past chair of the El Paso County Probate Section. He serves on many Bar Association legislative committees, including the Probate Rules and Forms Committee, which prepares forms for use by the Courts and the public, and the Orange Book Forms Committee, which prepares estate planning forms for use by attorneys in Colorado. Mr. Williams is a regular lecturer to attorneys on various probate and trust issues.
Mr. Williams and his wife, Tammi, have two grown sons, and, being empty nesters, wanted more kids around the house, so they became foster parents to a number of wonderful children through Hope & Home, a local foster care agency. In his free time, Mr. Williams plays a mean guitar in his church’s worship band (“mean guitar” being allowed in church, he assures us), and he attends his kids’ sports activities and enjoys Sky Sox and Rockies games with the kids.
