Todd LaDouceur is an aggressive, skilled trial lawyer and counselor. He believes that disputes are resolved when the opposition respects his clients’ positions and resolve. Over the past thirty years, Todd has helped thousands of clients resolve problems short of lawsuits by recognizing business and insurance realities and costs. If negotiating fails, Todd understands that a well-planned, cost-effective approach to litigation yields the best results. Having tried well over a hundred cases before a jury, judge, or arbitrator, Todd has mastered the courtroom skills that help a client decide to “go to the mat” or seek a reasonable settlement. Litigating matters from traffic court to the United States Supreme Court in Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi, Todd has the experience to navigate the state and federal legal systems, making the whole process less costly and more manageable. Todd partners with his clients as their participation and insights are invaluable to a positive result.

Todd’s training and experience coupled with a relentless drive have resulted in successful outcomes for hundreds of clients including professionals, corporations, service companies, trucking companies, employers, commercial property owners, developers, contractors, engineers, and a myriad of other businesses and individuals, as well as their underwriters and insurance companies.

Undoubtedly, military service has chiseled Todd’s ability to remain calm under pressure. As a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and a commissioned officer in three branches of service, the Army, Navy and Marines – effective leadership is a hallmark of his character. A degree in Aerospace Engineering with an emphasis in planetary orbital mechanics allows him to quickly unravel and deftly handle the most complex and intricate cases. From construction defects to business disputes to engineering failures, no case is too difficult. Being a Marine Flyer and NASA veteran – attention to detail and planning precision/execution are second nature. These traits transfer directly to the effective practice of law.

Todd has been married to his wife, Maria, for 33 years and has two adult sons. He is an active private pilot and scuba diver and enjoys traveling with his family.
