Todd G. Lezon

Todd G. Lezon is an Associate in the Los Angeles office who focuses his practice on transportation liability. At M&C, Mr. Lezon represents defendants in all stages of civil litigation in commercial auto, personal auto, habitability, and products liability cases. He has proven himself to be an exceptional problem solver in complicated legal problems, such as winning a motion to expunge a lis pendens that won the case for his client. Moreover, he is committed to working closely with his clients to zealously advocate their position and provide the best results.

Mr. Lezon's commercial auto litigation experience includes defending truck drivers and contract service providers in high-exposure transportation cases involving catastrophic injuries. His personal auto litigation experience encompasses representing defendants engaged in virtually every type of vehicle accident. Additionally, Todd's habitability litigation experience includes representing property owners and property management companies in adverse liability cases with substantial exposure to statutory attorney fees and civil penalties.

Todd is vastly knowledgeable and experienced in devising plans and strategies to help his clients excel. While at M&C, he prevailed on a motion to quash for lack of personal jurisdiction after a four-hour evidentiary hearing that involved examining and cross-examining several witnesses. The results led to his client's dismissal from the case. In addition, he has effectively prepared and argued motions for summary judgment, persuaded the plaintiff's attorneys to dismiss his clients from the case voluntarily, and settled cases at mediation for less than half of the potential value of the case.

Before law school, Todd served in the U.S. Army as a non-commissioned officer and deployed to Iraq twice to support Operation Iraqi Freedom. During his first tour of duty, he was part of a military police unit that entered Iraq during initial combat operations. During his second tour, Todd led a special operations forces team tasked with implementing the division commanders' counterinsurgency strategy in central Iraq. Todd was awarded the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal for his service.

Todd earned a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego, and a J.D. from California Western School of Law in 2011. After earning his JD, Todd earned an advanced LLM law degree in Taxation from the University of San Diego School of Law. During his last semester of law school, he participated in a full-time, internship-for-credit program and worked as an intern for a sole practitioner in San Diego, who taught him the fundamentals of consumer bankruptcy, estate planning, and personal injury.

Todd has participated in extensive pro bono work for disabled veterans. Away from the office, he spends his time with his wife and twin boys; watching them grow has been the highlight of his life thus far.
