Todd Wooten
500 President Clinton Ave.
Suite RL 20
Little Rock AR, 72201

Todd Wooten is a Partner in our office in Little Rock, Arkansas, and he has tried more than 165 cases over a legal career spanning a quarter of a century. He focuses his practice on aging services, construction, medical malpractice and professional malpractice and ethics matters as well as a wide range of other business disputes and liability matters, and has first-chaired numerous complex cases in federal and state courts.

Todd takes the time to understand each client’s long-term business goals and unique circumstances so he can develop litigation strategy that supports broader business objectives. He has won multi-million dollar verdicts on behalf of clients for breach of contract and has successfully defended many wrongful death and injury cases. He has also tried two original jurisdiction actions before the Arkansas Supreme Court on proposed constitutional amendments.

In addition to his extensive experience at leading and managing complex high-risk litigation, Todd has negotiated numerous out-of-court resolutions through arbitration and mediation as well as pre-trial settlements when the merits support that tactic.

He represents clients in a wide range of industries including insurance, health care, finance, construction, transportation and real estate, which gives him a holistic view of emerging litigation theories and successful outcomes. 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.

Todd earned a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law, and a Master of Laws degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. He also completed a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Central Arkansas, and had additional study at University of Ulster in Northern Ireland and University College Dublin.
