Personal Quote:

No matter how smart you are, you don't know what you don't know.  Unless you have no kids, little or no property, and a modest income, a divorce is likely to have a significant impact on the rest of your life.  Seek professional help, even if it's just to help you with what you don't know you don't know.


Todd’s legal career spans almost forty years and thousands of cases.

Back in 2019, Todd retired from his long and successful career in the full-time practice of law. At the time of his retirement, he was Senior Counsel with Slepian, Schwartz and Landgaard in Peachtree City, widely recognized as one of the top law firms in the region. He handled all types of civil litigation for the firm, including family law.

Todd is a former Chief Assistant District Attorney. He successfully conducted more than one hundred jury trials in Superior Court as lead counsel. They include the prosecution of several death penalty murder cases, for which one defendant is still on death row today for the axe murder of an elderly couple. Sealey v. State, 277 Ga. 617, 593 S. E. 2d 335 (2004).

He successfully handled more than seventy-five appeals, almost exclusively as lead counsel for the appellee. They include the presentation of a number of oral arguments before the Supreme Court of Georgia, and one before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

He has also been the principal of his own bankruptcy law firm, and holds a degree in Finance, so he has the background and experience to guide his clients through the widely varied economic challenges of divorce.

Todd has been honored to participate as a speaker or moderator in more than a dozen different seminars and programs approved for continuing legal education credits by the State Bar of Georgia, including a presentation to the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers while he was a prosecutor.

He has also been honored to sit as a presiding judge or an attorney evaluator for a number of prestigious mock trial competitions, including the University of Georgia School of Law’s intramural tournaments, Georgia Tech’s Annual Ramblin’ Wreck Invitationals, and the National High School Mock Trial Championship.

Every few years, the Supreme Court of Georgia holds a special session of Court at one of four accredited law schools in the state, and invites distinguished law graduates from the host school to participate. Todd was honored to present an oral argument for one of his capital murder cases at such a session held at his alma mater, the University of Georgia School of Law.

Todd has lived in the Atlanta metropolitan area for most of his life. He attended Ridgeview High School in Sandy Springs, where he was the quarterback and captain of the football team.

He earned his undergraduate and professional degrees at respected institutions here in Georgia and has practiced law on Atlanta’s suburban southside for most of his career.

He is married, approaching twenty-five years now, to former Broadway actress Kay McClelland, who is also from Sandy Springs. They have two children. The family moved to the Peachtree City area in 2004. Both of their kids are graduates of McIntosh High School and are now in college.

Todd enjoys time with his wife and kids, plays golf regularly, and follows football and other sports.
