Todd Neckers decided he was going to be a lawyer as soon as his dreams of playing professional baseball died…which happened to be in the 6th grade. So when asked how long he’s been practicing law, the technical answer is since 2007, though really he had been preparing for this career since the early 1990s. And with seven lawyers in his family, including his father, he had plenty of opportunities to observe and ask questions from a very young age.

As a business and estate planning attorney, and the former owner of his own law firm, Todd brings a unique and practical perspective to his corporate practice. Todd serves as general counsel to a variety of businesses throughout West Michigan and represents business owners throughout the life cycle of their business. Todd provides legal services covering start-up, corporate governance, contracting, employment issues, purchase/sale and other business transactions, intellectual property, and succession planning.

In addition to his corporate practice, Todd also has significant experience in estate planning, with a wealth of knowledge on asset preservation and trust administration. Todd works with families and individuals of all ages helping them with the problems and opportunities presented in providing security and protection for spouses, children, and grandchildren.

A native of Grand Rapids and a Michigander through and through, Todd attended Hope College in Holland before going to the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor. Todd and his wife, Kate, live on the southeast side of Grand Rapids with their two children. Outside of work you can usually find Todd pushing his 4-year old daughter or 2-year old son in a jogging stroller around Reeds Lake.
