Detroit’s legal sphere holds Todd Perkins in high regard as a paragon of expertise and versatility. His diverse clientele, ranging from Detroit City Council Pro-Tem George Cushingberry to middleweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., attests to the breadth and depth of his legal acumen.
“Trust and an in-depth relationship with the client are foundational to any professional interaction,” asserts Perkins. Specializing in a spectrum of areas, including civil, business, and sports entertainment law, Todd places a strong emphasis on understanding each client’s unique needs and treating them like an extension of his own family.
Nestled in the bustling core of downtown Detroit, The Perkins Law Group is an ensemble of eight formidable, proactive attorneys. The firm ingeniously melds the comprehensive resources of a large institution with the personalized, attentive care of a boutique practice.
“We don’t just meet client needs—we anticipate them, making every client feel integrated into our legal family,” Perkins elaborates.
Todd Perkins defies the stereotype of a conventional attorney. Raised in Detroit as one of six siblings, he was a multi-sport athlete at the University of Detroit High School before earning his bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College. His scholastic journey even took him to France, enriching his cultural understanding.
Before entering the legal field, Todd channeled his passion for education by teaching French at Peace Lutheran School in Detroit.
“Empowering our clients through education enables them to make legally sound decisions,” he believes.
Todd began his legal career by earning his Juris Doctor from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, initially focusing on criminal law. He subsequently expanded his portfolio to include civil and transactional law, augmented by a foray into the financial world and the management of a specialized hedge fund in foreign currency trading and real estate investment.
Central to Todd’s practice is the management of client expectations.
“Balancing client aims with practical legal outcomes is essential,” he advises. In his personal life, he is a devoted husband and father, crediting his resilient faith and strong family values for his sustained personal and professional growth. “My father and parents have been my life’s compass,” he adds.
