Todd and his family moved to Lynchburg over twenty years ago so he considers himself an honorary native of the community. He graduated with distinction from Brookville High School where he was active with the varsity football and wrestling teams. He earned Eagle Scout from Boy Scout Troop 50 and was an active member of the Grace Church youth program. From high school, he traveled to Christopher Newport University to pursue literature and leadership studies. While at CNU, Todd traveled the world, including study abroad at Oxford University in the United Kingdom. In 2008, he graduated cum laude with specific honors for the English major with distinction.
In 2009, he returned home to study law at Liberty University School of Law. At LU, Todd distinguished himself by becoming the champion of the first-year law student moot court competition and thereafter competed at a national level for the moot court, mock trial, and dispute resolution teams. He received multiple awards, including top orator, top brief, and placing among top teams in the United States. He has coached a competition trial team that placed in the semi-finals of a national competition. He graduated with distinction in 2012 and began practicing law as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in Halifax, Virginia. He served as an ACA in Halifax and later Fluvanna for over 8 and a half years.
As a former prosecutor, Todd personally tried over 1,000 cases, including multiple jury trials that lasted for several days. He has taken on charges of felony murder, rape, child exploitation, DUI, burglary, animal cruelty, and malicious wounding—just to name a few. In addition to handling criminal cases, Todd has also developed a civil practice in asset forfeitures, name change petitions, and expungements.
Todd married his incredible wife, Rachel, in 2020. They live in Lynchburg and are glad to be home.
