Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.

Frank understands the value of establishing trust with all individuals involved in the matter at-hand. He’s the dependable and dedicated voice you want on your team to resolve an investigative matter, and will carefully listen to each person involved to ensure that the policies of each institution and organization are honored.

Frank began his investigations career as a Legal Assistant for Bernstein Shur’s Campus and Workplace Investigations team in 2016. Since then, he’s built on that experience by working with General Counsel at the Jackson Laboratory (“JAX”) and by investigating employment discrimination complaints for the Maine Human Rights Commission (“MHRC”). MHRC’s neutral fact-finding model of promoting Maine’s anti-discrimination law continues to be a major influence on Frank.

But that’s not all. Frank is also very experienced in:

  • Synthesizing large volumes of information
  • Mediation
  • Maintaining strong relationships with clients

In his former life, Frank was:

  • Student at the University of Maine School of Law
  • Mediator for State of Maine Judicial Branch (during law school)
  • Investigator at Maine Human Rights Commission (“MHRC”) (during law school)
  • Summer Associate at The Jackson Laboratory (“JAX”)
  • Legal Assistant at Bernstein Shur
  • Paralegal in New York City
  • Charter School Teacher in Brooklyn, New York
  • Graduate Student at New York University; Master’s Degree in American Studies

When Frank isn’t working, he is…

Walking and hiking Maine’s nature trails. Frank also enjoys reading some of America’s greatest literature, and has an abiding interest in continental philosophy.
