Grant Frankfurt, an associate at Duffee + Eitzen, was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, graduating from St. Mark’s School of Texas in 2005. He attended the University of Oklahoma, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology, with Distinction, while also minoring in Political Science and History. He completed his undergraduate studies with Distinction in three and a half years. While at OU, Mr. Frankfurt served as an elected student congress representative, interned for a United States Congressman in Washington, D.C, and interned with financial crimes special agents at the United States Secret Service, where he closely worked on federal criminal investigations. Mr. Frankfurt also completed the police academy at Eastfield College and was certified in administering the standardized field sobriety tests that police officers use in DWI investigations.
Mr. Frankfurt was admitted to Emory University Law School in Atlanta, ranked as a top-twenty law school by U.S. News & World Report, and finished his law degree at the University of Oklahoma College of Law where he was on the dean’s list. Mr. Frankfurt also had the privilege of working with one of the most prominent criminal defense firms in Dallas, where he assisted attorneys on DWIs, criminal appeals, and federal criminal cases.
After graduating from law school, Mr. Frankfurt worked for a firm that concentrated on family law and civil litigation. In his first year of practice, Mr. Frankfurt participated in three jury trials. He then went to work for a real estate development company where he gained experience in real estate transaction law. However, Mr. Frankfurt missed practicing trial law and went to practice with a firm in downtown Dallas that concentrated on family law and commercial litigation. Although Mr. Frankfurt gained invaluable experience, he left in 2015 to start his own practice to focus on the two areas of law that he is passionate about: criminal defense and family law. Mr. Frankfurt has worked with some of the top DWI and criminal defense attorneys in Dallas, attended advanced seminars in DWI defense and marriage dissolution law and has spent considerable time representing clients in the criminal and family courts across the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Mr. Frankfurt joined Duffee + Eitzen in 2017.
Mr.Frankfurt is licensed to practice in Texas courts as well as federal courts in the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas. He enjoys following college sports, fishing, hunting and playing tennis. His wife, Dr. Heather Frankfurt, is a veterinarian in Dallas.
