Overview

Todd S. Boyce is a senior attorney practicing in Swift Currie’s workers’ compensation section, bringing nearly 20 years of litigation experience to his clients’ defense strategies. He represents businesses in the fields of manufacturing, logistics, sales, consumer goods and insurance throughout all phases of a workers’ compensation case, from commencement of litigation through trial, appeal and dispute resolution.

Over the life of his career, Todd has handled millions of dollars’ worth of claims. Furthermore, he has successfully advocated on behalf of more than 1,000 clients before administrative boards, municipal courts, state courts, superior courts and appellate courts.

Todd has occupied a variety of positions throughout the courtroom. He previously served as a judge, hearing more than 10,000 cases, evaluating evidence, making rulings and managing a significant caseload. He also spent over five years as a trial prosecutor, during which time he appeared in court on an almost daily basis. In addition, he is often called upon as a court-appointed expert, and conducts investigations and interviews witnesses to develop an opinion on a case. Todd’s clients benefit from this unique blend of experience, which gives him well-rounded insight into the best method to achieve their desired goals and outcomes.

Todd prioritizes keeping his clients both well informed and regularly informed to ensure they have a comprehensive understanding of the matters at hand. He believes in the importance of setting a plan and strategy early on and revisiting that strategy often to adapt to new circumstances.

An active member of Georgia’s legal community, Todd frequently speaks at conferences, including the State Board of Workers’ Compensation Annual Educational Conference. He is also an adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law, where he teaches law students pre-trial litigation and oral argument techniques.
