As editor of Michigan Lawyers Weekly, Todd made sure Michigan’s most important legal news was analyzed and reported by managing a full staff of reporters, copy editors and designers. He also personally covered many of the state’s most pressing topics, such as Michigan Supreme Court rulings, the Michigan No-Fault law, and legislative developments that affected both Michigan courts and law.
During his practice in Illinois, Todd’s primary focus was on criminal defense. He was an attorney for the Illinois State Appellate Defender’s Office, defending indigents who were facing the death penalty. In private practice, Todd represented clients in criminal court as well as in child-protection and juvenile court. Todd has tried lawsuits before juries and judges, and he has argued cases in the Illinois appellate court.
