Biography



I was born in San Diego, California while my father was serving in the United States Navy. My family eventually relocated to Georgia, where I graduated from Washington County High School in Sandersville in 1972. I earned my B.A. from the University of Georgia in 1976 and my J.D. from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1979.

While completing law school, I participated in the University of Georgia Prisoner Legal Counseling Project from 1978 to 1979. After graduating, I served as Chief Assistant District Attorney for Ogeechee Judicial Circuit from 1979 to 1981. In 1981 I entered private practice with the Law Offices of Joanna NeSmith Rosner in Thomasville, Georgia. I remained with the firm through 1982 before accepting a position as Chief Assistant District Attorney for Rockdale County where I served until 1993. In 1993, I was elected as State Court Judge for Rockdale County, a role I fulfilled until 2004. I founded the Law Offices of William F. Todd, Jr., P.C. in 2005.

During my time on the bench, I was a nationally known judge who handled DUI cases and lectured across the United States for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Throughout my career, I have taken a holistic approach to the law. I developed a DUI treatment and sentencing program called the Todd Program which helped DUI offenders reduce repeat offenses and obtain treatment through consistent, firm treatment of DUI offenders. I then developed a pretrial diversion program to assist those accused of drug, theft or violence offenses who were first offenders, as those issues often overlap. I continue this proactive approach as a defense attorney and find it sometimes improves my clients' standing in court.

In addition to criminal and family law cases, I also handle small claims cases and civil litigation.
