Here is a link to a Discovery ID show about one of the murder cases Todd worked.
As a private investigator (hired by defense attorneys or as a court appointed investigator), Todd has utilized his experience and training to "re-investigate" cases on behalf of criminal defendants.
Todd has also used his investigative experience on behalf of civil clients by, for example, interviewing witnesses, reviewing crash investigations, and documenting scenes.
Todd has received and been nominated for investigative awards from civic, professional, and governmental organizations, including the Hillary Robinette Award given by the Prince William Regional Chamber of Commerce for Excellence and Integrity in Investigative Work, and a U.S. Attorney Law Enforcement Public Service Award. He earned a Master of Public Administration degree from George Mason University, a B.A. from Grinnell College and attended the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel for one year.
Prior to his law enforcement career, Todd worked for some of the largest law firms in Washington, D.C. as a government affairs analyst assisting with their regulatory, legislative, policy and litigation practices. This work included researching businesses, individuals, industries, and legislation/regulations in a timely and efficient manner.
The mission of Broadside Investigative Group LLC is to provide cost effective, thorough and timely consulting and investigative services to individuals, attorneys, and businesses. Consulting services are available nationwide, while investigative services are offered for cases with a Virginia, Maryland or Washington D.C. nexus.
