In 1999, he received his Juris Doctor degree from Stetson University College of Law. After earning a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps before his final year of law school, Todd began his active duty tour in the U.S. Marine Corps shortly after graduating from Stetson.
While in the U.S. Marine Corp, Todd gained a wealth of knowledge in military law.

Later, as head of the Claims and Investigations Section of the Civil Law Office, Todd handled criminal and civil investigations, as well as claims brought by and against the United States and the U.S. Marine Corps under various Federal Claims Acts, including the Federal Tort Claims Act. During his final year of active duty he served as a Trial Counsel, where he prosecuted over 120 criminal cases under the Uniform Code of Military Justice before his honorable discharge in July 2003.
Today, Todd focuses his practice in the areas of trucking, personal injury/wrongful death, mesothelioma and product liability litigation.
