As a professional in the legal recruitment and consulting field since 1999, his experience encompasses associate, partner and group placements across all practice areas. Todd has successfully presided over hundreds of placements in both the national and international legal markets, and he works with over 500 law firms. These firms span elite international firms to middle market national firms to local and regional firms, as well as highly regarded boutiques. On the in house end, he works with companies in many different industries and sectors, ranging from Fortune 500 corporations and major financial services organizations to startup companies.

Todd believes that the foundation of success begins with being passionate about his craft. "I love what I do. People hear that in my voice and see that in my body language, and that resonates with my audience," he says.
"My approach to recruitment is not about short term gain or cutting corners. I invest the time to really get to know the people I work with. It's important that I understand my candidates' personalities and professional goals just as well as I do my clients' platforms and cultures. Only then can you make the right fit."
Todd received his law degree from the University of Miami and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, where he was a Behavioral Science and Law major. He is an avid fitness enthusiast, foodie and sports junkie – particularly all things Miami football – who loves music, fashion and traveling. Todd lives in East Brunswick, NJ with his wife and son. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing sports and volunteering in the community – with his interests focused in social programs and causes associated with children, poverty, mentoring and animal rights.
