Todd Street has lived in Thornton for more than 30 years. He was a student at Thornton Public School and at Francis Greenway High School. He then studied Business and Law at the University of Newcastle.
Todd Street became a lawyer in 2006. Initially, he worked for a Newcastle-based firm in general practice, before joining a long-established and prestigious law firm operating in the Newcastle area in early 2011. He spent two years working with and learning from some of Newcastle’s best and most experienced lawyers. He has a broad range of experience in family law, wills, powers of attorney and enduring guardianships, conveyancing, probate and criminal law.
In 2015, the Law Society of New South Wales awarded Todd Specialist Accreditation in the area of family law. Specialist Accreditation is awarded only to family lawyers who are sufficiently experienced and who demonstrate specialised competence by passing a rigorous course of assessment.

Away from the law
Todd enjoys playing sport, and in particular tennis. You will often find him at District Park at Broadmeadow, ripping forehands past unsuspecting net players.
Todd enjoys playing the drums. He’s on sabbatical at the moment, but you never know when you might find him behind a kit belting out a cracking version of Livin’ on a Prayer.
Todd is also an avid supporter of the Newcastle Jets. He’s a bit old these days to be jumping for Newcastle with the Squadron (some of the Squadron are now old enough to be his kids), preferring the quieter life elsewhere.
Last, but certainly not least, Todd is a long-time supporter of Nottingham Forest Football Club. He has for some time organised the local Nottingham Forest Supporters Club, Nottingham Forest Supporters Down Under. Despite what you may hear elsewhere, the fact that Forest were relegated at the end of his first season as a supporter was purely a coincidence!
