He received his law degree in 2012 from Touro Law and decided to open his own law practice in 2014.

Having earned his Juris Doctor degree and being an attorney, his approach to finance and planning is unique. He gains a great deal of gratification from helping people become financially organized and educating his clients on how to maximize the dollars flowing in and out of their financial worlds.
As an Advanced Sales Specialist, and member of the Business Planning Division, Todd works closely with owners of businesses, as well as their team of trusted professionals to assess the health and financial viability of their business. Many business owners have an idea as to what the intrinsic value of their business should be, however, in reality, they are unaware of what the actual value of the business would be if something were to happen, or what that value would be when it comes time to sell the business, or even retire. Helping business owners understand the value of their business, discussing and designing advanced tax strategies for owners and executives, and making sure legal documents are proper to achieve desired goals are part of how successful business plans are executed. Todd works with specialists and experts both within and outside of CWP to ensure that each of these plans is executed with the highest degree of precision.
In his spare time, Todd is an avid golfer and enjoys fishing, camping, MMA, reading, cars, watches, and collecting fine wines and bourbons. No matter what the event he always enjoys spending time with his family and loved ones.
