Billy DeFrance, CFP®


Billy DeFrance is a Certified Financial Planner™ professional with Lauterbach Financial Advisors. He began as a portfolio advisor in May of 2004, later became the firm’s Chief Compliance Officer (through 2022), and in 2016 became a partner in the group. While Billy is the firm’s primary representative for qualified company retirement plans, his passion is working with families, helping to make the language of investing clearer for everyone. He has committed to moving the focus of financial planning away from the sale of products and towards the big picture, helping clients live life financially confident.

Billy came to El Paso in March of 2000, on assignment to Fort Bliss. He met his wife, Gloria, the same day, and they were married a year later. After Ft. Bliss, Billy attended UTEP and completed his Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting in 2004 and became a CFP® professional in 2009. He has four sons and a vicious little mutt named Wicket, and is expecting his first granddaughter, Luna Grace.

When Billy’s not connecting with clients, he can be found working with local Boy Scout Troop 164, the Rotary Club of El Paso Sunrise, enjoying an El Paso High School Tigers Basketball game, road tripping with his family, and working on his 1977 Corvette.
