About me

Todd has settled thousands of cases worth tens of millions of dollars on behalf of his clients.  He helps those who encounter difficulties with insurance companies in the following areas: personal injury claims settlement and negotiations, wage loss (or other income loss), minors' settlements, payment of medical expenses, PIP IME's, property damage (rental vehicles, storage and towing charges, loss of use of the vehicle, total loss), etc.


Todd enjoys being with his family: playing board games, camping, hiking, gardening, raising Koi in a small backyard pond, and other recreational activities.  He also works with youth in the community to help them develop life-skills like hardwork, citizenship, volunteerism, communication, and strong family relations.
