Lawyer’s passion for rodeoing spotlighted in “Downtime” feature

Local attorney still gets his kicks on the rodeo circuit

published in The Journal Record | January 26, 2007

In one of its very first “Downtime” features focusing on the interesting hobbies and leisure time activities of Oklahoma businesspeople, The Journal Record turned the spotlight on McAfee & Taft shareholder Jeff Todd. Reporter Marie Price interviewed the trial lawyer on his journey from high school state champion team roper and college standout to law student and litigator.

These days, when he’s not in the office or courtroom, he’s likely to be found coaching his young children in the sport or taking time to participate in an occasional weekend U.S. Calf Roping Association event.

Whether he’s in a rodeo arena or a courtroom, Todd says it’s all about competition.  “The thrill of winning a jury trial or winning a case is about as close as I’ve found to tying a calf in eight seconds and winning in front of a crowd.”
