Boston Criminal Defense Attorney
Attorney Kate Frame has extensive experience on both sides of a criminal defense case, especially those involved in sex crimes.
She served as a senior trial prosecutor for the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, prosecuted some of the county’s most serious child abuse cases and has tried to verdict more than 50 jury trials. Her strong courtroom skills have been highly effective in winning cases before juries. She has the critical ability to strategize effectively in advising clients under criminal indictment and investigation, and when involved early in an investigation has been able to prevent false allegations from evolving into a public and criminal charge.
In addition to her work as a prosecutor, attorney Frame served a six-year term as a member of the Sex Offender Registry Board. The Governor appointed her to this position based upon her criminal justice experience. Throughout her term, she presided as an administrative law judge at hearings, she acted as the director of hearings at this agency and trained new board members. She has textbook knowledge of the sex offender registry laws and regulations and the court decisions interpreting these laws, as well as inside, working knowledge of the procedures, policies and standards used by the administrative law judges and board members in these hearings.
Attorney Frame has also lectured, taught and provided consultation to other attorneys about SORB procedures and practice. She has served on the faculty for statewide trainings for both attorneys and forensic psychologists who practice before the SORB, and she has been appointed a Visiting Scholar at Boston College, where she has lectured before undergraduate classes on criminal justice issues.
Kate Frame folds all this experience together in her work as a trial attorney. She will not hesitate to take a case to trial, as long as her client agrees that is the best approach. To learn more about Ms. Frame, follow the link below.
