Todd Riff is among a small percentage of lawyers in the State of Texas that are Board Certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
He first received a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Texas in 1984.
After working in the commercial real estate business in Austin, Texas for three years, he decided to go to law school and enrolled at the University of Houston where he competed and was a leader of the National Mock Trial Team for two years. He received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Houston Law Center in 1990.
Mr. Riff spent the first 9 years of his legal career as a trial attorney for Griggs & Harrison (since acquired by Strasburger) concentrating in business litigation and insurance defense. In 1999, Mr. Riff founded a new firm, and while he continued his business litigation practice, he began representing individuals who had been seriously injured as a result of automobile and trucking accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and aviation accidents.
Mr. Riff continues to practice in these areas, and has had a great deal of success in trying those cases that could not be resolved by settlement. In addition to being a trial lawyer, Mr. Riff is a graduate of the AA White Dispute Resolution Institute, and has mediated countless cases over the last two decades. He is a member of the American Association for Justice (formerly ATLA), the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and the Houston Trial Lawyers Association.
