Tom Frost is from East Tennessee. He is a graduate of East Tennessee State University and received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in 1976. He started the practice of law in East Tennessee, originally in the fields of criminal law and personal injury. After some three years, he joined a firm in Bristol, Tennessee, and practiced mainly in the fields of corporate and commercial law, mainly in construction law.
In 1986, Frost moved to Murfreesboro and continued in corporate, commercial, and construction law with some cases in personal injury and domestic relations. In 2001, Frost became an Assistant Public Defender and spent ten years in the General Sessions Courts defending persons charged with crimes.
In 2011, Frost jointed with John Drake and Darren Drake and formed the association of Drake Drake & Frost. There, he spends the majority of his time in criminal defense law. Although not a specialty, he deals mainly with misdemeanor and felony cases involving illegal drugs, with some emphasis on DUI and other crimes.
He is a member of the Rutherford Cannon County Bar Association and the Tennessee Bar Association and the criminal law division of that association. He is licensed to practice in all state and federal courts including the Tennessee Supreme Court, the Eastern District of Tennessee Federal Court, the Middle District of Tennessee Federal Court, and the United States Court of Federal Claims.
