Ms. Frazier is a seasoned intellectual property and business attorney experienced in representing clients ranging from large, Fortune 50 corporations to small, closely-held companies. She has successfully prosecuted and managed both domestic and foreign trademark portfolios; obtained copyright protection for clients' creative works; and advised clients regarding their bet-the-company legal issues for over a decade. Until recently, Ms. Frazier spent her entire legal career in top AM Law firms (A/K/A "Big Law"), and she is excited to bring her first-rate training and expertise to medium-sized businesses, small businesses, startups, and individuals at a more affordable price point.
Ms. Frazier was born and reared in the small, rural, Southwest Georgia town of Camilla (total population = ~5,000). Always laser-focused on her studies, she worked hard through grade school and earned the title of Valedictorian of her graduating class at Mitchell-Baker High School. After graduating high school, Ms. Frazier attended The Florida A&M University ("FAMU") on a full academic scholarship where she majored in Political Science with a concentration in pre-law studies. During her undergraduate years, Ms. Frazier clerked for Judge Richard Waters, Jr. at the State Court of Mitchell County, Georgia. She also interned with the late Hon. Alfred "Jay" Powell at the Law Offices of Powell & Waters, P.C. in Camilla.
In just three years, Ms. Frazier graduated from FAMU, summa cum laude. After college, Ms. Frazier moved to Athens to attend The University of Georgia School of Law ("UGA Law") on an academic scholarship. Of all the topics Ms. Frazier studied during law school, intellectual property law--particularly trademark and copyright law--piqued her interest most. During her second year of law school, she was selected to serve as an editorial board member of The Journal of Intellectual Property Law, which is the nation's oldest student-edited law journal devoted exclusively to the field of intellectual property law. Additionally, her student note was selected for publication in the Journal. See, You Can Stand Under My Umbrella: Weighing Trade Secret Protection Against the Need for Greater Transparency in Perfume and Fragranced Product Labeling, 15 J. Intell. Prop. L. 315 (2008).
In her third year of law school, Ms. Frazier earned the honor of becoming the very first African-American Editor in Chief of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law.
Since graduating from UGA Law, Ms. Frazier has gained a wealth of practical legal knowledge and experience from working alongside some of the best attorneys in the world at two different large law firms--one of which is an international firm that has been consistently recognized as a Top 5 Am Law firm. She has also received several awards for her legal work over the years, including being named to the Lawyers of Color Hot List and The Black Lawyers Top 40 under 40. From trademark and copyright matters, to advice and counseling regarding business law and compliance matters, Ms. Frazier is well-equipped to help you navigate your legal needs in a way that makes most sense for your business.
Ms. Frazier resides in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area with her husband. In her personal time, Ms. Frazier enjoys yoga, spending time with her family and friends, traveling, gardening, swimming, bargain hunting at home goods stores, watching home improvement shows, and trying out new restaurants.
