The process was challenging, but in the end my charges of not guilty on all counts was exactly what I hoped for.

A very happy client, LK

Larry Combs represented me in a very beneficial way. I'd say we minimized the consequences the best we could in a situation that could have been much worse. I'd recommend Larry to anyone in need. I am very happy with his help. Thanks Larry.

I was arrested on a DUI charge in Larimer County and on the advice of lawyer friends hired Larry Combs to represent me. Larry's skillful pleading with the D.A. office allowed me to avoid jail time despite a very high blood alcohol level. He has steered me through both the DMV and court processes and made a difficult situation both understandable and manageable.

Larry was very knowledgeable and professional while representing me for an alcohol-related car accident. He was able to answer all of my questions and from his ample experience was able to discuss in detail the possible outcomes of the case. Larry was always on time and beside me in court. I would recommend him to a friend!

I retained Larry after being stopped for DUI in Grand County and charged with a refusal when I couldn't blow hard enough to register on the breathalyzer. As Larry warned me was likely, the DMV upheld the refusal determination, but through his diligence and diplomacy, Larry was able to negotiate a deferred judgment in my legal case. Maybe just as important to me, Larry and his team were consistently kind, responsive, and supportive throughout the process, making a stressful situation a little less daunting.

I highly recommend Larry Combs as a defense attorney. Larry obtained a very favorable settlement for my DUI stop, even when the odds appeared to be against me – Larry believed in fighting for my rights. Miraculously, Larry was able to use his experience and knowledge to negotiate a plea settlement, where it won't be on my record! Moreover, Larry was able to minimize costs – quickly strategizing and scheduling efficiently, saving everyone involved time and money. Most importantly, I had the feeling that Larry was extremely focused on my case and that he was willing to go the extra mile to ensure I had the best defense possible. Highly recommended!

Larry Combs recently defended me in connection with a DUI. I am pleased to recommend him as a lawyer in DUIs and other matters. Larry is extremely professional and knowledgeable as a lawyer in these matters. He was recommended to me by another lawyer who is familiar with Larry's work. Beginning with our first meeting, Larry very carefully told me what to expect and his predictions were very accurate. Other professionals involved in my case all spoke very highly of Larry and I think the result Larry achieved for me was better than I had a right to expect. Throughout the experience, Larry stayed committed to helping me through to process. As stated above, I strongly recommend Larry Combs.

Thank you so much for handling my case, I truly appreciate the professionalism and guidance in getting my case deferred!
I highly recommend anyone that is faced with a seemingly insurmountable legal issue, that they strongly consider Mr. Larry Combs, for their legal representation. His vast knowledge of the system and law, combined with his demeanor and experience is comforting when you are facing adversity.
Thank you again Mr. Combs, for your expertise and guidance in getting this issue settled and behind me!
Best regards

I was arrested in steamboat springs for a dui 2 months ago. Understandably, I was confused, nervous and worried about what was going to become of this mistake. Larry helped me through every step of the court process and got the best possible court outcome. I highly recommend Larry's services and would use Larry's services again (hopefully I won't have to).

Although not all court cases are the same, I would like to tell you my experience with Larry Combs. When I first met Larry and explained my pending case, he was patient, efficient and thorough explaining the law and potential penalties. He answered all my questions to my satisfaction. He negotiated a plea agreement I could live with. He was also instrumental in helping me be proactive with the sentencing process before my case went before the judge. This in turn eliminated about half of the sentencing fines and court costs, and other sentence requirements. He also worked within a timetable I could meet, such as court dates and dates with the probation office.
I would highly recommend Larry Combs as an attorney and want to thank him for his service.

Just a note to say thank you so much for all the work in Routt County towards the resolution. We are all so very grateful for your dedication and perseverance on his behalf.
K.B. & M.

Through an unusual set of circumstances I found myself arrested for a DUI.
Larry Combs was highly recommended to me and I am forever grateful.
Mr. Combs is a consummate professional. He knows the law and he understands the process in Steamboat. He is respected by both his clients and his legal peers.
In addition, Mr. Combs is kind, thoughtful and compassionate; he understands the terror and fear that his client is experiencing. He is, in addition to a master legal professional, a wonderful human being.

Larry is a highly professional, helpful, and efficient attorney who successfully steered me through what can be a worrisome ordeal. My situation was especially unique and trying because I was out of state. Larry was of course undaunted by the circumstances, and was communicative and realistic during each stage in court, making sure I did not have to travel back to Colorado while ultimately securing a favorable outcome


It was the darkest day of my life. I met Larry Combs and felt immediately better mentally about my situation as Larry guided me through the legal process and got me a deferred judgment. I am able to repair my life and become a whole person again! Larry's kindness made me feel that there are people out there to help no matter what happens to you. Thank you, Larry Combs!


Just wanted to write and send my thanks for everything you did for me. Hope you have a great 2018 and thanks again.


If you find yourself, as I did, seeking representation in an alcohol related incident with the law, look no further, Larry is a PRO. He knows the ropes, advised me and held my hand through the maze of DMV hearings, court appearances, probation officer evaluation and sentencing with a great outcome (given the charges). As Larry told me "I don't waste time or money" in regard to him representing me in this matter.Larry was highly recommended to me and I certainly found him to be all that and more. Great job, Larry, and thank you so much for your service and reasonable fee.


I would like to thank Larry for getting me an offer when the cards were stacked against me. Larry did a great job handling all of my requests and giving advice during my legal issues, he was tasked with reducing 2 Felony charges and 2 Misdemeanor charges in my Domestic Violence case with the possibility of prison time. Larry negotiated a plea offer that allowed me the ability to remain free and be able to get my rights and my life back. If it were not for Larry I would more than likely have lost much more.Thank you.


Thank you so much for helping us navigate through this diversion process. I appreciate you speaking with _______. I think it was a much more meaningful experience to have you share your stories, philosophy and enlighten him about making good vs. bad choices. Again, you were wonderful to make yourself available, it really meant a lot to us and helped give me peace of mind. Thank you!!!


Thanks, Larry, you saved me a lot of trouble, I wish we could have fought the charges but the legal system in this country is set up so poor people don't have a chance. Thanks again.


I appreciate all your help. Thank you very much.


Larry did an excellent job on my case for a DUI. He was upfront on his pricing and kept me in the loop on what was going on and what to expect. Larry got me the best possible outcome on my case and I could not have gotten it without him.


I am very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination of Mr. Combs. Throughout my case, he was always very quick to respond, made himself available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the status and details/developments of my case. Mr. Combs was able to get my DWAI reduced to a deferment. Thumbs up to his office staff, Isabelle. I received emails and all other documents in a timely manner. I have already referred two people to you and will continue to do so. Your law firm is the best.

Thank you, Mickie

Hello Larry and Isabelle:
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH... you professional commitment to my success, in many arenas of life, has moved me deeply. Larry, you have been a solid advocate and friend and I will never, ever forget the experience and creativity in dealing with my legal problems. There is no attorney nor human spirit that measures up to your degree. It has been an honor and gift to have found you in 2003 when life was horrendous! Your humor and support during all of my issues have made such a powerful impact in my life, I am forever grateful. With warm wishes and appreciation,

L. L.

Thank you for your help and assistance with my traffic violation. I appreciate your timeliness and expertise.


Thank you so much for all your help. You and Larry have helped me through the biggest mistake of my life. With gratitude,


Thank you guys so much. Please let Mr. Combs know I said thank you very much. This is a life changer for me.


Please express my gratitude once again to Larry for helping my son get on the right track. I am so overwhelmed with joy that my son has a chance to understand and appreciate the importance of proper life choices and the consequences of bad behavior, without the destructions of his future potential.


Larry, I can't thank you enough for everything you have done so far. Thank you for all your hard work and for being in our corner.


Despite the unfortunate circumstances of dealing with charges against me, Larry provided me with the utmost support and guidance in approaching the case in the best way possible. With his knowledge and willingness to fight for what was the best possible outcome considering the circumstances, I received a deferred sentence. His support and persistence are the reason I was given this deferral in my case. Many thanks to him!


Did a great job communicating and explaining the legal process! Case was solved in an unexpectedly short period of time as was necessary. Very knowledgeable and respected by the members of the court.


When I was arrested for DUI I found myself in a state of uncertainty, confusion, and fear. After asking members of the community what lawyer I should seek for representation, the name repeatedly told to me was Larry Combs.
After speaking with Larry I immediately had a sense of calm about my legal situation. He explained to me all of the legal intricacies of my case in layman terms. Larry has extensive knowledge of how the legal process in Steamboat works and the key people that need to be worked with.
Most importantly Larry said what he was going to do for me and did it. A deferred judgment would be the best case scenario, and that was exactly the outcome. Communicating with me the entire time through the process. I highly recommend the services of Larry Combs if you are looking for representation. Call him today.


I was stopped and charged with a DUI while I was experiencing a medical issue. I tried in vain to explain my issue to the local DA, but she was only interested in getting a conviction. I contacted Mr. Combs and while he said that there is never any guarantees, he did say that if we ended up going to trial, he would do his best to get me a full acquittal. The case did go to trial, and never have I felt in better hands. The jury was only out for approximately 45 minutes before coming back with a Not Guilty verdict. Thank you, Mr. Combs for a job well done. I would recommend you to anyone without hesitation.


I prosecuted a lot of Larry's clients. He is a skilled and vigorous advocate and I would not hesitate to hire him myself.

Former Deputy District Attorney

The Family of C.D.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for me! I really appreciate it all.


I don't have many heros. I have lost faith in many things. But you are so appreciated by me. Thank you for all you do.


Thank you for helping me with my legal issues. I will recommend you for any legal issues my friends may have in Colorado.


Larry was very helpful representing me in my case. He is very respected by law enforcement, district attorneys as well as judges.

He also listened to me as I explained my arrest and why I did what I did. My final sentence is very fair and I have recommended him to others that I know may require an attorney in the future.

L.N. Steamboat Springs

Thank you for all of your work, support, and guidance through my situation and the opportunity to share my experience through this testimonial. If there is ever a need in the future whether for myself or someone I know you will always be my recommendation.

I recently found myself searching for an attorney due to a DUI arrest where I came across Larry Combs' website. It was here that I read all of the testimonies posted of individuals that Larry had represented in the past. I proceeded to make arrangements with Larry and this was without question the best choice I could have made and after a brief discussion our goal was to minimize the penalties. My DUI charge was my first with full refusal to any type of chemical testing. The outcome of my case turned out to be the best that we could have expected which consisted of a deferred sentence, zero fines, zero points against my license and the minimum community service requirement. Larry's professionalism, experience, respect within the legal community that he serves and the understanding and respect he had for me and my situation was invaluable. If you find yourself reading these testimonials as I did, be assured that you have found the right attorney to help you.

S.P. Steamboat Springs

I have never been as appreciative about any business person as I am about Larry. I always call him "The Buddha Attorney!" He is amazing not only as an attorney but as a wonderful, kind and supportive human being that I have ever had the amazing pleasure of experiencing. I will always be indebted to him for all that he did professionally for me but he touched my like in such a way that I will never forget the impact he had on my life.

L.L. Steamboat Springs

Thanks for all of the help you provided me, you are a true professional

S.D. Steamboat Springs

I do appreciate you and will be living a good life because of your work. Thanks.

T.M. Steamboat Springs

Larry Combs is one of the most diligent and hardworking people I have ever had the pleasure of being in close contact with. He is without a doubt one of the most trustworthy people you could have on your side, especially in a time of dire need. Not only did he help me immensely in one of the most difficult and complicated times of my life, he was always very competent with communication, available for reassurance and guidance at almost any time. I had quite a difficult case to handle and Larry handled it with ease. Larry is not afraid to step up to the place for any need, big or small. Always professional and polished, I am more than content with everything he did for me, and would recommend him to anyone.

K.B. Steamboat Springs

I was charged with possession of marijuana and alcohol and drug paraphernalia in Steamboat Springs. Larry Combs provided me with legal advice and representation in court, both of which were handled very professionally. As a result, Mr. Combs was able to significantly aid me in decreasing the fines and legal repercussions of my case to 12 hours of community service, drug-alcohol class and court fees, along with the opportunity for expungement of my charges.

J.M. Steamboat Springs

Larry Combs helped out our 19-year old son with the 3 misdemeanors he obtained after one night of bad decisions. Our son had no prior convictions and is a good kid. Larry was able to get one charge dropped and 2 charges deferred once the useful public service and the required class are completed. Larry is very honest, knowledgeable, timely, professional and a great advocate for my son. We hope we never have to use his services again, but if needed, he would be the first one we would call.

Thanks from the G Family

Larry, thank you for all you have done to help our family. We are forever grateful for all your help.

The V Family

I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for your help in my trespass matter. Without your assistance, there is no doubt that I would have been forced to proceed with the trial. I can't overstate my appreciation for your assistance throughout the process and please let me know if there is anything I can do to repay the favor.


Larry kept me in the loop, every step of the way, making it easy to understand the entire process of what I was going through. He was able to minimize the penalizations and set things up so that I could proceed with an in-state move I had been planning. My situation now is infinitely better because I hired Larry D. Combs.


Thank you for all your help, Larry. I truly do appreciate it and I wish you and Isabelle a happy holiday season. I will recommend you to anyone who needs a fair and dependable lawyer. Thank again and take care.


Thank you again for your representation. I really appreciate you being able to work with me on these payment plans. You really helped save my sanity and saved my future. I can't thank you enough.


I want to thank you for helping us through this crisis in our family life. It was so good to have someone as sincere, understanding, knowledgeable and just nice to lead us through the legal system. Thanks again.


Thank you for your continuous determination to get xxxxx the best possible outcome. Your efforts are much appreciated.


You need a lawyer like Mr. Combs. A professional person. He was always available, he listens, he has patience and he trusts in you. You can tell he loves and has passion for what he does.


I was referred to Larry Combs by a good friend and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I've made in my lifetime. Larry was able to negotiate a clean deferred sentence. Larry put forth significant effort expediting this case and ensuring minimal impact. I was unsure about being able to afford legal representation, but Larry Comb's services are affordable even for a college student. No matter their unique situation I would immediately refer anyone in need of an attorney to Mr. Combs.


I have had my share of crises in my life. In the biggest self-inflicted crisis of my life, I had no idea on who to choose as an attorney to represent me and help me through it and end up with the least amount of damage done to my life. I knew that the decision over who to pick as an attorney would be a critical decision. I thought it would be best to ask some people who were experienced in this who they might recommend. The name Larry Combs came up multi times. I was told that of all the many choices I had, Larry would definitely be the one I would want to help me through it.

I chose Larry and have since felt that I made the best decision possible. He worked very hard to do everything he could to minimize the damage to my life. He helped me gain confidence to work my way through my problem. Larry is a very strong attorney and he showed it in my very difficult case. He also has a very good staff (Isabelle) helping him help his clients. I would definitely recommend him


In March of 2014, I was stopped and arrested for DWAI. I was concerned because the combined points of the DWAI arrest and traffic violation totaled 12, putting my driving privileges at risk, and no telling what it would do to my insurance costs. It was certain that I needed the services of an experienced lawyer. I got some advice and contacted Larry Combs. It turned out to be really good advice. After talking to him, he seemed reasonably sure that he could help avoid having this incident appear on my record. He made no promises, but he did put my mind at ease. My trial date was set for April and Larry did a good job of forming a strategy that worked, and I did receive a deferred judgment. I would recommend him highly. A very satisfied client,


I was referred to Larry by a retiring attorney whom I respected. Larry handled my case with professionalism and humanity. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone facing charges that have life changing consequences.


If I move to Steamboat, you will be my attorney.


I was pulled over in August coming from the hot springs (Strawberry Park) outside of Steamboat Springs. Having prior DUI's on my record, I refused the Breathalyzer test and was arrested. I was devastated and needed a good attorney. I searched the web for attorneys in Steamboat as I felt a lawyer from Steamboat would be the best option. We took this case to trial and Larry was outstanding. Fighting a DUI is very difficult, a jury dissension could go any way, Larry's representation was great and saved me from years of misery.


To my knowledge and experience, I feel that you have represented my case as best as possible. You have been an extremely responsible and comforting attorney through this entire process. This is a tough case and I understand the frustration involved. Yet, we worked out the best possible deal and will continue to fight for a better justice. I greatly appreciate your diligent work and I hold you in my best regards... Sincerely,


Larry Combs worked in a quick and respectful manner to get my DWAI deferred and my Careless Driving ticket dropped. I would recommend Larry Combs to anyone seeking legal advice.


Larry offered extremely professional and sound counsel. He made the legal process clear and was realistic about what to expect. I greatly appreciated how he looked at the human element instead of approaching my case as "just another DUI." He was adamant about receiving the best possible outcome and getting my life back to normal as soon as possible. I would recommend Larry to anyone who finds themselves faced with a difficult legal dilemma.


Larry Combs provided me with a truly awesome professional service for a recent DUI. He was on top of every aspect of the case from start to finish. He not only kept me informed but was instrumental in getting my administrative hearing dismissed and my conviction deferred. His services were very reasonably priced and he saved me money all along the way. I highly recommend his legal services.


I can't say enough about Mr. Combs. As an out-of-state resident, his experience and professionalism not only kept me out of Colorado, but resulted in a positive disposition in my case. His communication and services were not just comforting but extremely effective as well.

Thank you,
Larry T.

Thank you for your excellent help and sage counsel, and for taking time out of your busy schedule to get me in right away. You were a great help and support in a difficult time for me. With your experience and guidance, I was able to see things more clearly.


All of us have made mistakes. And some of us are in the middle of a "High Risk Mistake" right now. Now is the time to choose the Right Thing. That is what I did when I chose Larry Combs to represent me. His advice, patience, experience and upmost Professionalism have greatly encouraged me to stay on balance and keep focused on the right thing during my process. He led me through a trusting journey that ended up being a very good outcome with the circumstance that I was facing. When choosing a lawyer, make sure you involve a legal professional who will put your interests first and fight aggressively to seek the most advantageous case outcome, regardless of the particular charges you may be facing and the nature of the alleged offense. I am so glad I had Mr. Combs by my side. Thank you so very much.

Kati, Steamboat Springs, CO

Larry Combs represented me on a charge of DUI; my blood alcohol was almost twice the legal limit. His knowledge of the law and concerted conscientious effort on my behalf resulted in a reduction in charges to DWAI. I found Larry to be very professional and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him as an attorney.


Thanks very much for your help on this. I felt your representation and communication were both excellent.

Facing felony charges under destroyed evidence, I faced tough decisions. With Larry's analytical approach – he was able to quickly assess and create an angle that ultimately exposed the truth bechind the allegations. Also, in the wake of a persistent "victim" seeking revenge at all costs, Larry protected me from public humiliation and court appearances. He acted as my shield by buffering the negative and painful effects of the serious charges.

Larry's offensive moves and intuitive uncderstanding of the adynamics of aLL the key players won me the honor of having my case DISMISSED before my first appearance and saved me thousands of dollars fighting a fraudulent case.

It was not the easiest route, but Larry did me JUSTICE and quickly found the truth in a complicated situation through his strategic pland and Agressive Stance. His follow through with emails, letters, and phone calls were impeccable. He is thorough with a diplomatic and analytical style that won my confidence and trust in our first appointment.

Furthermore, risking my career with negative publicity, Larry, swiftly, had my records sealed — in record time. I cannot thank Larry enough for his tenacious diligence resolving my case.

Larry takes the law seriously and takes your situation seriously.

Thank you, Larry.

You asked for only two or three sentences regarding our satisfaction in your representation of our case. That's not enough to express our gratitude! From the first phone call and your quick call back, to the update after the case closed, and all the attention to detail in between, you were awesome! You even took the time to come to my work so that I could put a face to your name prior to my decision to retain you! When we had doubts, you stood firm in what the outcome would be. You took on my husband's case along with mine in world record time! Words alone cannot express the gratitude and satisfaction we feel for the work you did for us.

We absolutely will recommend you to anyone in the future that requires a law firm.

Larry Combs handled my case very well with excellent results. His levels of service and professionalism were unwavering. I honestly believe that I never would have made it through this without Larry's assistance and determination. Thank you!


When I received a DUI, I found Larry Combs' name in the yellow pages. I had no knowledge of what I should do or how to proceed. Mr. Combs handled every detail, saving me much grief. His fee was reasonable and his counsel was invaluable.


Larry Combs handled a case for me and I can only say the most positive things about him. He is very direct, responsive in a timely manner, thorough, and very professional. His fees were fair and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Isaac H.

At the very first meeting, my attorney, Larry Combs, put me at ease. I could tell he was on my side for the many charges brought against me. With his in-depth knowledge of the law, he was able to have the DUI charge dropped. His understanding of the law kept me from going to jail for possession. With his experience and knowledge, he knew what items on my record could affect the rest of my life and he was able to negotiate for the best results.


Over the 7 months of my ordeal, Larry kept me informed of everything that occurred when it occurred. Even when I had questions no matter how simple, he got back to me immediately. I was never in doubt about what was happening with my case. Larry always had the right information or the right answer right away.


I recently became entangled in the Colorado legal system. Larry Combs helped me during that challenging time and as a result of his efforts, my case reached a more-than-favorable disposition. Larry is diligent, direct, and fair-minded. I recommend him as a lawyer to anyone faced with criminal charges in the Steamboat area.


I would highly recommend Mr. Larry Combs as anyone's defense attorney regardless of the charges one is facing. I personally was facing 14 felony charges and all carried life sentences. Mr. Combs defended my case over 3 days and at the end, I was found NOT GUILTY. Thank you, Mr. Combs.
