Chris Frost was born in Hays, Kansas in 1962. She graduated from the University of Kansas in 1985. In 1992, Chris graduated from the University of Oregon School of Law, where she was a founding member of the Oregon Law Students' Public Interest Fund, participated on Law Review, and received the American Jurisprudence Award in Trial Practice.
Chris has had a variety of jobs including work as a waitress, nanny, hummingbird-feeder assembler (!), and grocery clerk. After college, she was the circulation manager of a weekly newspaper in Denver before going to law school. Since joining the Oregon State Bar in 1993, Chris has practiced personal injury law and has worked as a community organizer on Fair Trade issues and health-care reform. Chris found her niche in 2003, when she began representing injured workers in workers' compensation cases and at last found a place where her passion for justice, commitment to the law, and desire to help people came together. She is a member of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association and the Workers' Compensation Section of the Oregon State Bar. She was a staff attorney for the Workers' Compensation Board for two years before joining the firm.
Chris and her family live in Southeast Portland where their lives revolve around her two girls' soccer schedules, school, and church events.
