About Us

Our hugely talented team
Tara Frost

Tara L. Frost, Attorney at Law “Don’t Mistake my Kindness for Weakness” would be my biggest motto.  I have a passion for working with people and helping others and I have learned that most people will react better to kindness than they will with aggressive behavior.  However, it doesn’t mean that I am weak and unfortunately the opposing side has had to learn that the hard way!

My areas of practice are; Personal Injury and Probate.  I will assist my husband, Jack, with Estate Planning and Criminal Defense from time to time!

My mother is from Florence, SC and my father is from New Jersey (he would prefer I tell you he’s originally from Florida but that wouldn’t be accurate) and although I was born and raised in the tri-county area, I do not have a southern accent, yet I get along with everyone!

“Teamwork makes the Dream work!” I married my Summerville High School sweetheart and we now work and live together.  Yes, we work together and live together!!

Prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked in the hospitality industry for approximately 16 years and then owned a window covering company with my father.  Both careers taught me the importance of listening to clients and understanding what they needed a quality that I strive to bring into our law firm.  

I love our support staff and they are so great with our clients (and potential clients)!

While we don’t have any children, Jack and I have been blessed with two beautiful Golden Retrievers, Mistoc (Themistocles) and Elli (Elliana) who allow us to live in their Summerville home with them.  Sometimes they will bless the office with their presence and enjoy greeting our clients with their sweet smiles and wagging tails.

I graduated from Charleston School of Law, was the Vice President of the Student Trial Lawyers Association and am proud to have been a part of the team that instituted the Trial Advocacy Board at CSOL.

I enjoy attending church and bible study, reading, great movies, my dogs, my husband of course, swimming, golf (I’m a fair weather golfer), and my family.
