Todd Boyce, born in Decatur, Georgia, has always called Georgia home. A product of the DeKalb County School system, Mr. Boyce continued his education in Georgia by obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree from Emory University in 1999. In 2002, he obtained his Juris Doctorate from Georgia State University’s College of Law.
His legal career began as a prosecutor in Douglas County, Georgia. First in the Solicitor-General’s office and then in the District Attorney’s office, he spent every day in court seeking justice for victims. While there, Mr. Boyce spent almost five years honing valuable litigation skills including how to try a case to a jury. In his time as a prosecutor, Mr. Boyce handled more than 2,000 cases and made more than 500 appearances in court.
Desiring to broaden his litigation and courtroom skills, Mr. Boyce left prosecution and began working in 2007 as a civil matter litigator at one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in Georgia. As a Senior Associate at Swift, Currie, McGhee & Hiers, LLP, Mr. Boyce was able to put the skills and experience developed prosecuting crimes to work representing businesses and insurance companies. Despite handling more than 250 litigated civil matters, Mr. Boyce also continued to help the community at large through pro bono projects such as Hands On Atlanta, the Atlanta Food Bank, and Café 458.
In starting his own law firm in 2010, Mr. Boyce wanted to expand his litigation skills even further by taking on different cases. Since opening in Decatur, Georgia, he has been successful in representing a variety of clients and projects that he would not have been able to take on working at a large law firm. Currently, Mr. Boyce also serves DeKalb County as a judge in the DeKalb County Recorders Court.
Mr. Boyce is married to Katherine Cherry Boyce and together with their four year old daughter, Ellie, they continue to call Decatur, Georgia home. Mr. Boyce and his family attend University Heights United Methodist Church. In his spare time, Mr. Boyce enjoys running, cooking and playing guitar.
