Frank grew up in Lethbridge, Alberta, where he distinguished himself academically at an early age and also participated in a variety of sports including baseball, hockey and basketball as well as squash and racquetball in later years. His highly competitive nature is still quite evident in his law practice today.

Frank earned a BSc degree in biology from the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1967. After spending a further year toward a MSc degree he entered the Faculty of Law in Edmonton and graduated in 1972 and has practiced law in the City of Lethbridge ever since.

Frank has primarily maintained a litigation practice with an emphasis on Divorce and Family Law, Personal Injury (MVA) and Wrongful Dismissal. He has appeared at every level of Court in Alberta and before several different quasi-judicial boards. He has had cases published across Canada where he was involved as counsel in the areas of custody, child and spousal support as well in the areas of personal injury and landlord tenant disputes. In additional, he found time to teach the initial and intermediate Real Estate courses for many years and also lectured on a great many subjects in the community at the request of the Lethbridge Community College.

In the past Frank has served on the Board of Directors of many community organizations including the Lethbridge Family YMCA, the United Way, the Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Handicapped and Junior Achievement to name but a few. He also served as president of the Paradise Canyon Homeowners Association and continues to be active in the community providing advice to volunteer groups at many levels.

In addition to continuing to carry on an active practice, much of his time is devoted to sharing practice tips and experience with younger members of the firm.
