She has been elected as an officer of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association and was recently honored by Lawdragon as one of the top 3000 plaintiff lawyers in the United States. Frank specializes in automobile accident cases and product liability including medical devices, defective drugs, and product recalls. Frank is a graduate of University of Denver School of Law and also holds a Master's of Science in Social Work from Columbia University. Ms. Frank is also on the Board of Trustees for the National College of Advocacy and teaches extensively around the country, educating other lawyers in a number of trial skills and related subjects. She leads the firm's jury focus group consulting practice.

Carrie not only contributes to our clients and their causes, but has made a significant impact in helping other lawyers serve their clients.
