Todd was raised in the Reno-Sparks area. He is a veteran of the United States Navy, and he earned his bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Nevada, Reno. Todd then continued his education at the University of Oregon School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctorate in 2007.
Following law school, Todd returned to Northern Nevada and completed a clerkship with a District Judge at the Second Judicial District Court in Washoe County. Prior to joining Benson & Bingham, Todd was a partner at a law firm in Reno, where he practiced primarily insurance defense litigation—defending against the types of claims he now pursues for his clients.
Todd has tried numerous cases in front of Washoe County juries, in both state and federal courts, and he has argued several cases before the Nevada Supreme Court and the Nevada Court of Appeals. He is licensed and admitted to practice before all courts in the State of Nevada.
At Benson & Bingham, Todd’s insurance defense background and experience give him invaluable insight in serving plaintiffs in personal injury claims and litigation.
When he is not practicing law, Todd is usually either golfing with his family and friends or exploring the wilderness surrounding the Reno-Sparks area.
