    Verdicts/Settlements:

    • Todd Sallee represented me when I was falsely accused of a very serious crime. I was facing a long prison sentence if convicted. Todd was amazing throughout the entire process leading up to trial. He was constantly supportive of me and always went out of his way to make me feel comfortable throughout this very difficult time. His aggressive and thorough investigation left no stone unturned and we were very prepared and ready for trial. Todd fought for me with passion and emotion as if he were defending one of his own family members. My family and I owe him a great debt of gratitude. I will always have a special bond with Todd Sallee. I was acquitted at trial after just over an hour of deliberation. - Dennis "I cannot say enough about Todd and the work he put in to help me through a very trying experience. I faced nearly insurmountable odds in my DUI case, and given the evidence presented against me, I was ready to resign my case and accept a plea agreement. I was without a driver's license, out over $1000 in car repairs, and staring down an impending future filled with probation meetings, evening curfews, and awkward conversations with employers about why I have a misdemeanor on my record. Fast forward 6 months and I'm walking out of a court room juggling between feelings of shock and relief; hearing the words "not guilty" after going through everything that I had gone through was difficult to process. Even after we left the courthouse and grabbed a cup of coffee to celebrate, I found myself continually shaking my head in awe. If it wasn't for Todd and the absurd amount of research and case law he presented at my trial, I would never have been able to fully move on from this whole, terrible ordeal. I cannot thank him enough for everything he's done for me, and I am forever indebted to him for his invaluable support." - Ronnie
