I have been aligned with, and opposed to, Todd Smith on a few appeals. In each case, Todd was exceedingly professional, well-prepared and an effective advocate for his client. Given the choice, I'd prefer to have Todd on my team.

Tom Stauch

It's my pleasure to highly recommend Todd Smith as an expert Appellate Attorney. My recent experience using him produced the desired result, under budget and I found his services to be an excellent investment. Todd acts with professionalism and integrity and I would most definitely use him again.

Tracy Dieterich

Todd is exceedingly rare in that he possesses unquestioned appellate expertise, but also employs deft entrepreneurial skill and far-sighted digital strategic vision not commonly found in the wizened appellate ranks. In addition to his invaluable appellate and commercial litigation acumen, he has also been the progenitor of appellate-focused social media efforts in Texas. Not only did he found the first Texas appellate blog but the first Texas appellate twitter feed as well. He is now routinely sought-after by both local and national legal media outlets for his insights into the interplay between modern legal practice and digital media. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of superior appellate legal services.

Todd handled all legal issues for CPRC with great professionalism and confidence for more than 12 years. He was a key member of the team that made the Cox v. Shell class-action settlement operationally successful, and he was instrumental in bringing the relief program to a close.

I was referred to Todd Smith by another attorney to assist in a mandamus matter. Todd showed immediate depth of knowledge in the issues presented and gave me great peace of mind with his calm and complete analysis. Todd is my go to Appellate Attorney as the need arises. I will also consider using him for trial consultation on matters of greater complexity.
