Todd Green
Todd was engaged by business associates of mine (I am a corporate, transactional lawyer) to advise them in connection with an investment-related dispute. He performed admirably in counseling with his clients, filing persuasive court documents and, eventually, guiding his clients to a satisfactory settlement. Todd is smart, hard-working, responsive, personable and knowledgeable, and consistently demonstrated sound judgment in representing and advising his client. I heartily recommend him.

To the Rescue
I've worked with dozens of attorneys in my 30 years of business but very few litigators. I had an unfortunate situation arise involving a contractual/shareholder dispute with a company that I had invested in and was introduced to Todd by a very experienced friend roughly 18 months ago. I immediately liked Todd's style and hired him. During the case Todd absolutely proved to be the right choice. He was knowledgeable, practical, and most importantly, laid out all the options to me in a detailed and comprehensive way at each step in the case which empowered me ultimately to choose the best path given my comfort level and with a full scematic of options. No agenda from Todd. Just pluses and minuses and I'll take it where you direct. His knowledge and experience proved to be a steady hand at critical times when others were letting emotion cloud judgement. I'm happy to say that the situation has now been resolved to our great satisfaction and probably on as quick a timeline as could have been expected. I wouldn't hesitate to retain Todd again or refer him to a close friend. Robert

Business Litigation Professional
I met with Todd Green based on a referral and our family hired him almost immediately. First impressions were that he was professional, knowledgeable and honest, which proved to be accurate through the entirety of our business relationship. The lawsuit was complicated, involved and spanned several decades; Mr. Green methodically dissected the case, put together a defense plan, worked the plan and ultimately secured a successful settlement agreement. Having never gone through any type of litigation, we were kept fully and honestly informed as to the status of the case, how it was proceeding, and the timeline of upcoming events. As the case continued on and our family grew weary with the delays and motions, Mr. Green never wavered. He kept us on track, always moving forward to the final goal of either settlement or trial. It was Todd Green's expert handling of our lawsuit that won our case and spared us a lengthy trial. Todd worked tirelessly for us throughout the entirety of our case and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking a litigation attorney.

As the CEO and President of MORE Media Group, inc a media and marketing company in Los Angeles I found myself in a situation with a client that was unprovoked. Having been in the entertainment and media business for 37 years I had not ever been sued nor have I ever sued anyone or any company. This client attempted to sue my firm and many of the other vendors along the way because of their shortcomings and reckless business practices. I was very fortunate to find Todd Green and his associates in Newport Beach California. Todd and his Team are brilliant attorneys and they are in it to win it, with a very programmatic and very strategic methodology. Their surgical approach to understand the matter at hand and discern the best strategy given the law and best practices surrounding the issue makes them invaluable. I can highly recommend them and if you are in need of legal representation and you want to retain the "Best of the Best" I encourage you to retain: Green LLC, Newport Beach California. They were able to fend off and win, "3" attempted complaints in the Superior Court as well as "1" attempt in the appellate court all from the same moronic client. Sincerely Todd Thank You for everything you did on this journey, I could not would not have wanted to do it without you. If you would like to contact me pertaining to retaining to Todd to represent you for more information, please feel free. Bill

Legal Consulting for Business
Todd has represented our company in a number of contractual and litigation matters, each with success. Todd's approach comes from a "business matters" view, responding quickly when it matters, being forceful when that is appropriate, and compromising on small matters when the a fair deal is the primary objective. He not only brings his legal expertise to the table, but also offers strategic approaches to achieving the end goal. He will take the time to understand exactly what our end goal is, and our minimum expectation so that he can formulate an approach that will best achieve those goals. His billings have always fairly represented the work performed (no surprises). When it comes to litigation, Todd approaches a case with the seriousness and forethought a lawsuit deserves. He is very aware of the costs and is transparent throughout the process. His communications with opposing council has always been concise, confident and strongly legal or factual based. He is very effective in these communications. I would recommend Todd to any business that needs an attorney with their contracts or with their legal disputes.

best business litigator & good man
I really enjoy working with Todd. Now by the time you contact Todd you have been most likely been wronged and/or cheated. Todd will help you organize the swirl of emotions you may have to seek justice by asking you questions to understand why you have been wronged. You might get defensive to argue against a very skilled litigator but his questions are designed to help you understand not only if you have a real grievance and more importantly if the case is worth pursuing. And if he feels you don’t really have a case and or not worth pursuing it in courts, he will advise you on how to possibly resolve the conflict you may be having, and not take the case forward. And he will not charge you for this, and this simple act can save you a lot of money and a lot of headaches. Note difference 1 from other law firms that would have most likely sent you a retainer agreement before even understanding your case. Todd will not run to court with scorched earth bravado statements. At first he will do his very best to actually resolve the issue by settling with the opposing party. He is very methodical, calm, and surgical in his approach in this and builds up the momentum of your case almost like an orchestra by carefully moving parts and playing only points that will resonate well to resolve the case. And he will maintain calm and elegant professionalism even in the mudslinging chest beating condescending tactics of some opposing counsels by deconstructing their points to a point of teaching them manners, and still focusing them on resolving the matter. Note difference 2 from other law firms that would have most likely sent you a trust agreement and discourage you from settling. Todd respects the court and he will teach you to respect it as he views it as the last place people should be rushing to resolve their issues. Even if you will not agree with him philosophically on this, you will agree as courts are expensive. However once in court, he is very well prepared, has understood the potential arguments from the opposing counsel before his presentation, and makes clear concise logical arguments. And since he is very well prepared and has great respect for the courts and sees as last place to resolve issues, the outcome will most likely be in your favor. Todd’s knowledge of the law is beyond simply understanding the law, it is a true passion he has for his vocation that is clearly reflected in his quality of work. Note difference 3 from other lawyers that frivolously take cases before the judiciary and costs you and the courts a lot of money. Todd respects you as a client. And therefore respects your money and has great deal of empathy for the cost of litigation. Every time he is going to work on something he will first call you, get your approval before working on it. Therefore when you get your bill, there are no surprises. And if you have a question about your bill, just ask him and he will gladly answer your questions. Todd is not petty AT ALL, and you will not see frivolous items such as cost of making copies or mailings. And if there are situations where he is having a discussion with you and does not agree with your position he will often not charge you. You will only see the services he has ethically provided to you. Note difference 4 from other law firms where you might get charged if you have questions about your bill! Based on the 4 points outlined above the services you will get from Green LLP will be better than ANY top law firm at fraction the cost. He is most likely the best business litigator, and recommend him sans any degree of trepidation and will use him for any business disputes that life might throw my way.

Public Company's Review
As a publicly traded company with a wide geographic footprint, we have engaged many outside attorneys to represent us across the country--and are very satisfied with Todd's performance. We have been pleased with Todd's creative thinking, quick-on-his-feet-ness, willingness to address our concerns quickly and satisfactorily and with his procedural knowledge. We have gone to trial with Todd more than once and have prevailed in each case. In those trials Todd was logical, effective on cross examination and presented well during his openings and closings. Todd is a zealous advocate who approaches cases strategically and aggressively. We highly recommend Todd.
