Todd Litton has a significant track record of working to build bridges in and across communities.
Whether it’s establishing robust partnerships between public schools, private funders, and community and business volunteers at Citizen Schools; convening and mediating a way forward for hundreds of community members in launching Houston’s Out 2 Learn after school initiative or one of our first early childhood expansion efforts, Preschool for All; or helping lead efforts to strengthen our community through board leadership with the Human Rights Campaign’s Houston Steering Committee, Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church’s Hope for Families, or Breakthrough Houston, Todd has worked diligently to help communities identify “win-wins” that strengthen bonds and move communities forward in a constructive manner.
Of course, his legal training and experience as an insurance defense trial lawyer with Hays, McConn and his business degree and experience in finance help parties think creatively and constructively about their disputes, too.
Through working with the local chapter of the American Leadership Forum, of which Todd is a Senior Fellow, he helped bring and learn from a class on implicit bias for 15-20 of our local judges called “Leading Consciously” and taught by john a. powell.
A sixth-generation Texan, Todd was born and raised in Houston and left to attend Duke University where he met his wife, Dr. Jennifer Litton. Todd returned to Texas to earn his J.D. from The University of Texas at Austin and his MBA from Rice University, and Jennifer and he have made Houston their family’s home for over 20 years.
Todd is a member of the Association of Attorney Mediators and a Candidate for Credentialed Mediator with the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association.
