Todd Levine does not find his days typical. There are days when he will be trying a case in Miami, then the next he will be in Fort Lauderdale. Since there is no predictability in his line of work, he always has to be prepared. He finds being prepared for what the other team of lawyers is going to say or do, makes him the most productive that he can be. When he is in the courtroom, he likes to have every move down. This is his main strategy. Because he tries complex cases, it helps him to win.
Todd Levine recently spent $100 on music equipment for his son. He has 2 sons. Levine enjoys spending money on helping his children with their artistic expression. When he is not working, he still plays the guitar. So, he knows exactly how important it is to his kids that they get to practice their instruments.
Todd Levine would recommend everyone to read Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. He enjoyed the book and thinks it would bring enjoyment to others who read it as well. The part he liked the most is the plot of individualism v. collectivism. He finds that it is useful for everyone to know there is a difference between the 2 and to know the difference between them.
