Russell Frost

Attorney at Law

Russell Frost, Austin lawyerRussell is one of two fifth-generation Texas lawyers—the other being his sister Emily. His great-great-grandfather — also named James Russell Frost—practiced Texas law in the 1800s and later served as a member of the Texas House of Representatives. Virgil T. Seaberry, Russell’s great-grandfather, served as State Bar President from 1957-58. And Russell’s father Jim Frost, a Board Certified civil litigator, served on the Supreme Court of Texas Board of Disciplinary Appeals for nine years. Without a doubt, practicing law runs in Russell’s blood.

As an experienced trial attorney, Russell represents individuals and small business owners (less than 50 employees) in civil matters including premises liability, personal injury, breach of contract, products liability, property disputes, probate matters, and DTPA violations. He has worked on over 100 cases from justice court to federal court, and he handles litigation matters from first demand to trial and appeal. While prosecuting cases for the City of Lubbock, he received favorable verdicts in all jury and bench trials. He is admitted to practice law in the State of Texas and in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas. He graduated summa cum laude from the Texas Tech University, School of Law.

Russell is also a licensed paramedic. While working for Bastrop County from 2001-06, he responded to hundreds of emergencies from heart attacks and strokes to fatal car wrecks, fires, dog bites, and work-related accidents. He knows first-hand the pain, suffering, and anguish these single moments can cause over a lifetime. Additionally, his experience in the field of insurance defense gives him the inside track in negotiating with insurance companies in the course of prosecuting personal injury claims.

In his spare time, Russell enjoys running, cycling, spending time with his dog Zira, and rooting for the Houston Astros and the Texas Longhorns. He claims to be a decent pool player, but the evidence suggests otherwise.
