About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

 I have been practicing for 38 years, graduated from University of Georgia undergrad and law school, and have served as a full time criminal and civil law judge for 12 years, a full time Chief Assistant District Attorney for 12 years, and a full time criminal defense and family law trial attorney for 13 years. I have two grown daughters, one grandchild, two stepdaughters, and a beautiful Latina wife who is a Spanish interpreter. I love to run for exercise, read books, watch television, and go to the movies once a week. I have two dogs and a cat. I pride myself in making myself accessible to my clients, responding quickly to their inquiries, and giving my all to their legal representation. I have handled tens of thousands of criminal and civil cases and have tried hundreds of jury trials, I am not intimidated by any attorney as I think my experience and ability matches up well against the best. I have handled appellate work in the Georgia Supreme Court and Georga Court of Appeals, arguing before both courts. I have handled death penalty cases, drug cases, aggravated assault cases, kidnapping cases, burglaries, rape, child molestation cases, both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney. I am very experienced in divorce and contested child custody law. I think my experience as a judge, prosecutor and defense attorney gives me a unique perspective on the law.

Very knowledgable and honest
Mr. Todd was very knowledgable and worked very hard on my case. His fees were fair and not as high as another attorney who quoted me for less work. I would recommend him to anyone who wants an attorney with experience, who actually cares about the outcome of his clients.

By far the best
Mr. William F. Todd is by far the most professional, helpful, and prompt attorney I have experienced or heard of in my life. I heard back almost immediately and was beyond scared i was going to jail just to find out I had nothing to be scared of. Mr. William F. Todd explained to me the legalities of my situation and that i was being hustled by fancy language and big words. He settled my issue in no time and had truly saved my from making some major mistakes. I strongly suggest if your worried about a case or just need some understanding. This attorney is with out a doubt the one to call. Im very lucky and glad I called him before I got in to far over my head. Truly a 5 star attorney.

Great Attorney
Mr. Todd represented me throughout the most difficult time in my life (a 5 year plus ongoing custody battle). He was fiercely honest and was always available to answer my calls/emails no matter the time of day or hour of night. His insight time after time proved to be right. I'd recommend him unequivocally.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"William Todd is a great lawyer. For some 10 years he was the Judge of the State Court of Rockdale County. I have tried more cases in front of him than in front of any other judge and can say he was as good a judge as I have ever appeared before. He ran a great courtroom. He was courteous and let you try your case. He researched the law when he was unsure of the answer and ruled accordingly. Given his extensive experience he is the best you can hire if you have been charged with a crime, be it DUI or something more serious. Since leaving the bench he has also concentrated in divorce cases, at which he is a master. He is personable, too. I highly recommend him."

I appeared before him when he served our community as a State Court Judge, and was impressed by his knowledge of evidence and willingness to let the lawyers present their case. I frequently refer cases requiring criminal defense to Judge Todd and am happy to say that i endorse him."
