Todd Gaziano joined Pacific Legal Foundation in 2014 as the Executive Director of PLF’s DC Center and as its Senior Fellow in Constitutional Law. He brings valuable experience from distinguished government jobs in all three branches of the federal government, positions in the private sector, and as a long-time, nonprofit foundation scholar and leader in the freedom-based public interest legal movement.
Immediately prior to joining PLF, he was the Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer of an innovative healthcare delivery company and a healthcare IT company. Previously, he served in the U.S. DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel, where he provided advice to the White House and four Attorneys General on constitutional matters, was a chief subcommittee counsel in the U.S. House of Representatives, and was the founding director of Heritage Foundation’s Center for Legal and Judicial Studies. From early 2008 to December 2013, while he was a think-tank scholar and corporate attorney, he also served as a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, where he reported on civil rights developments and conducted oversight hearings on and investigations of civil rights agencies. He was also a civil trial attorney early in his legal career.
Mr. Gaziano has been a frequent legal commentator in print, radio, broadcast and cable TV programs, before congressional committees, and in many other public settings. During his nearly 17 years at Heritage, Gaziano published scholarly papers, articles and op-eds on constitutional and legal reform topics. Gaziano also worked to foster freedom-based public interest law organizations, increase collaboration between them, and improve their effectiveness. Among other contributions, he helped almost 100 advocates appearing before the Supreme Court prepare for their oral arguments.
