Even when he was serving as an insurance defense attorney, Tod exhibited a great compassion for those who were legitimately injured. Today, as a personal injury attorney at Gordon Law Offices, Tod brings a unique perspective on how insurance companies and their lawyers evaluate cases. This intimate knowledge serves our clients well from the start of the case all the way through trial.

Coming from a family of police officers, Tod was always fascinated by the law and how it impacts people on a daily basis. Following this passion to Benedictine University and then the DePaul University College of Law, Tod would go on to become heavily involved in cases related to medical malpractice, nursing home discrimination, product liability, automobile and trucking accidents and other catastrophic personal injury matters. His trial experience extends to car accidents, medical malpractice, slip-and-fall liability and traumatic brain injury, several of which resulted in million-dollar verdicts.

Tod is frequently complimented for his ability to objectively examine the nuances of his cases, blending his strong advocacy on our client’s behalf with a practical assessment of every aspect of the case. As a result, he isn’t blinded by unforeseen developments and keeps clients well apprised of what lies ahead, so our clients always have realistic expectations of the results they may receive.
