About David Todd
David Todd always has rooted for the underdog. He went to law school to help the little guy get a fair shake against the big and the powerful. David has been a trial lawyer since 1989.
He began his legal career practicing criminal defense and successfully trying many criminal jury trials. This experience taught him how to present a compelling case to a judge and jury under the difficult circumstance of defending someone accused of a crime.
Since changing his focus to representing Texans in family law, eminent domain and personal injury cases, his trial experience and willingness to take cases to court have been key to obtaining excellent results for hundreds of families, either in settlement or at trial.
He is still helping the underdog by helping families resolve their issues in divorce and custody disputes, helping injury victims take on powerful insurance companies, and helping landowners defend their rights against the government and utility companies.
David Todd has been recognized for his continued pursuit of excellence as an attorney as well as for the tremendous results he achieves for his clients.
