About me

Todd is an attorney and founding shareholder with the law firm of Hallock & Hallock, a professional corporation.  Todd serves clients throughout Utah, Idaho and Arizona and practices law in the areas of Estate Planning, Business Planning (Formation through Succession), Asset Protection, Farm & Ranch Planning, Charitable Planning, Special Needs Planning, Trust Administration and Probate.  Todd is deeply committed to a relationship based approach to serving the needs of his clients.  Todd believes that every client is unique with his or her own story to tell.  By understanding that story, he is better able to understand the goals and objectives of his clients and develop a custom estate plan or business plan that will best serve the client and their family.  Todd firmly believes in the importance of regular review and maintenance of the estate plan.  It is only through regular review and maintenance that the plan will be properly funded and continue to reflect the client’s goals and objectives.

    Todd is a very careful and thorough attorney. And that, in my opinion, is the best kind. He is a consummate gentleman. I have referred multiple individuals to him, and will do so again when I have occasion to.
