Christopher Frost Founding Partner

FROST LLP is proud to support community initiatives that are true to our vision of the legal profession’s future and that help make legal careers accessible to all, regardless of circumstances.

We have a rich history with the Caruso School of Law (CSOL) at Pepperdine University. Nearly half of our attorneys—including two founding partners—are CSOL graduates. FROST LLP believes that every student should have their best chance to succeed, and that money should never be an obstacle. FROST LLP COO Candice Hassid has turned our values into action with a plan to support CSOL’s Suit Stipend Program. The Program—the brainchild of CSOL Director of Career Services Alexis Joyce with support from Dean Paul Caron—provides financial support for each and every law student needing to purchase a suit for their first professional interview or job. To reach that goal, FROST LLP has fully endowed the FROST LLP and Frost Hassid Advisors Dress for Success Suit Stipend Program.

FROST LLP is proud to support the Hummingbird Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to saving lives by offering awareness, fact-based education, and resources for harm reduction, substance use, and fentanyl poisoning/overdose prevention.

We know BigLaw. We come from that world, but we believe the test of a law firm shouldn’t be whether the firm is large or the shoes are white.
