D. Todd Smith has devoted his two-decade legal career to civil appellate practice. Serving as an intern to a federal circuit judge and as law review editor-in-chief sparked his interest in appellate work, and two years as a Texas Supreme Court briefing attorney solidified it. From there, Todd moved on to Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P. (now Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP), where he learned from some of the best-regarded appellate lawyers in Texas. In 2006, he started a boutique firm—now known as Smith Law Group LLLP—that has grown to four lawyers handling appeals and providing litigation support to trial lawyers and their clients statewide.

Before the law beckoned, Maitreya Tomlinson worked extensively for JPMorgan Chase and other financial firms. After heeding the call, Maitreya equally dedicated his time serving as his law review’s editor-in-chief; interning with a federal district court chief judge; interning with an intermediate appellate court justice; and serving as an honors intern with the SEC’s enforcement division. He continued acquiring appellate experience while serving as a Texas Supreme Court law clerk and now employs that combined experience assisting clients with appellate matters and trial counsel with litigation.
