He states, “Some of the most important steps a lawyer can take to protect and defend a client are at the early stages of a case.”
As a trial lawyer, his philosophy is grounded in the strong belief that his clients should be fully informed about every aspect of their case as the case progresses. Todd zealously defends his clients against both felony and misdemeanor charges.
