Kate A. Frame


Kate Frame was a Senior Trial Prosecutor in the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office, where she served for five years, tried to verdict 50 jury trials — including a wide variety of sex crimes — and earned a reputation for winning the most challenging cases. She has a proven record of success in the courtroom, having won convictions in each of the Superior Court cases that she tried as a member of the Middlesex County Child Abuse Unit.

In 2002 she was appointed by the Governor to serve a six-year term on the state's seven-member Sex Offender Registry Board, the statewide agency charged with classifying all convicted sex offenders in Massachusetts. She most recently acted as Director of the Agency's Hearings Unit and, in that capacity, trained Agency staff, new Board Members and Hearing Examiners. Attorney Frame also presided at hundreds of classification hearings, applying the Sex Offender Registry laws and regulations to determine classification levels.

With the rare experience that attorney Kate Frame brings, she provides unmatched command of the laws and regulations governing sex offenders, courtroom savvy and critical inside knowledge of how sex offense cases are handled by state prosecutors and the administrative agencies charged with classifying alleged offenders.

Kate Frame is a graduate of Boston College Law School. She graduated from Holy Cross College Phi Beta Kappa and has been appointed a Visiting Scholar at Boston College, where she has lectured on "Prosecuting Sex Offenses and Classifying Sex Offenders Before the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board."
