Todd Smith is a leader among personal injury trial lawyers in the U.S., and is the immediate past president of the prestigious 60,000 member Association of Trial Lawyers of America. Voted Chicago Lawyer Magazine's Person of the Year, Mr. Smith has made access to justice his personal crusade. In his leadership activity as president of the Illinois State Bar Association, he led the battle against the threats that inhibit citizens from obtaining justice in the courts, including cutbacks in legal services for the poor and the inability of people of modest means to afford a personal injury lawyer. Mr. Smith and his accomplishments on behalf of his clients have been featured in numerous publications including Chicago Magazine, Chicago Tribune Chicago Magazine, and most recently in the Sunday New York Times. Whether it is a product liability, aviation negligence, or physician malpractice case, Todd Smith stands fearless against wealthy and powerful corporations, insurance companies, hospitals, and government agencies. He resolved a U.S. record $10.6 million settlement in a psychiatric malpractice case involving a Chicago area woman and her family, and recently obtained physician malpractice settlements of $17.25 million and $20 million in catastrophic injury/medical malpractice cases. One of the top trial lawyers in Illinois as well as the country, Mr. Smith is annually listed in the book The Best Lawyers in America. He has repeatedly been listed at or near the top of the Chicago Magazine survey of multimillion dollar personal injury settlements including his listing in 2004 as No. 1 with $70 million in recovery for his clients.
