Todd Levine is a litigator who has all the professional experience common among litigators who are successful: a degree in law, mentors who were guiding him when he started his career, years of experience, and a devotion to the job. However, he has skills that are not from the legal profession that he also credits for his success. He’s an enthusiastic musician and has been playing guitar since the age of ten. Also, he draws, plays a little bass guitar plus some keyboards, and he has a penchant for science and math.
That combination of creativity plus a gift for specific sciences have enabled him to have an approach that is more “out-of-the-box” to litigation. For instance, the time Todd Levine was in a mediation, then the mediator came holding new evidence that the other side had just presented, which at first, seemed to hurt his case, but he managed to turn things around.
Todd Levine is a partner and founding member at the Miami-based Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen, and Levine. It is a litigation-only firm, but it also deals with family law. This includes nonlitigation and litigation matters. It has a Minneapolis and a Boca Raton office. Philippe Lieberman, Michael Perse, Jason Marks, Bruce Katzen, Steve Silverman, Abbey Kaplan, Alan Kluger, and Levine all started the firm in 2009. All of them had worked together in a department of litigation at Kluger, Peretz, Kaplan, and Berlin, which is different from the Kluger Kaplan firm.
Also, Todd Levine has represented Edie Laquer, who is a well know commercial real estate broker, in several successful cases. For example, in the year 2009, Laquer Corporate Realty Group, her brokerage, was awarded a 3.4-million-dollar judgment in a lawsuit against Africa Israel Properties claiming that she was not paid commission on a sale agreement of a property.
