Todd is one of the two founders and managing partners of Oxner + Permar, a North Carolina law firm. Since 1994 Todd has been known statewide for his creativity, tenacity, and success in handling workers’ compensation claims. Todd often saw successful claims where other attorneys did not. His aggressive style and track record contributed to his being in the first class of attorneys the North Carolina State Bar declared as Board Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation. Additionally Todd is an AV-rated attorney with Martindale Hubbell, the highest rating that an attorney can receive. Todd is a member of the Christian Legal Society, the American Association for Justice, the Workplace Injury Litigation Group (formerly on the Board of Directors), the North Carolina Academy of Justice, and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum (whose membership is limited to attorneys successfully obtaining awards greater than $1,000,000 for a client), among many other activities.
