Ted is Leo Stark's lawyer, hired by Kate Roberts, to represent Leo in his attempt to sue Sonny Kiriakis for sexual assault. Ted knew the suit was, and Leo was worried that Ted couldn’t be trusted. Ted and Kate assured Leo all he cared about was making money, and he would be making a lot after the settlement Sonny would be forced to pay. Ted was confident that he would win in court as Leo had already sent dirty texts to himself using Sonny’s phone and used a hidden camera to take photos of him and Sonny in a compromising situation. Ted used the texts to make Sonny seem like a predator and the fact that he slept with Leo before he had officially handed in his letter of resignation didn’t look for good Sonny. Ted also pursued Kate. He brought dinner to Kate’s room and they talked and bonded. Ted admitted his wife had passed away from cancer and Kate would relate to since she was recently widowed due to her husband being murdered.

Ted was hired by Theresa Donovan to represent her when she sued Brady Black for custody of their son, Tate Black. Theresa’s argument wasn’t strong enough, so the judge adjourned for the day.
