Todd has litigated and tried many cases in both state and federal court, earning the respect of judges, clients, and even opposite counsel. The American Academy of Adoption Attorneys has named Todd as one of only five Fellows in all of Nevada. Fellows in the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys are selected because they “have met the highest ethical and competency standards” and “are active practitioners with the most knowledge, skill, and experience in the field of adoption.”
Before he practiced law, Todd obtained a degree in Public Policy from Brigham YoungUniversity in 1991 and a law degree from Mercer University where he distinguished himself in client counseling. He graduated in 1994 and was admitted to practice law in Nevada later that same year.
Todd was appointed by the Supreme Court of Nevada to serve on the Foreclosure Mediation Panel, which was created by the Nevada legislature to lessen the impact of the foreclosure crisis on Nevada’s residents and financial institutions. He serves as the Chairman of the City of Las Vegas Planning Commission, and as Vice President and Corporate Counsel for The Economic Club of Las Vegas. Todd also assisted former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in 2010 to reform state judicial campaign and election systems.
