Todd often speaks and writes about liability issues and commercial litigation and has received numerous awards for his trial successes.

Todd is actively involved in his community and has been a long supporter of the Arc Arkansas, which provides support, housing, advocacy, education, and leadership to people with disabilities and their families.
