Some people just seem to lead with their heart. Attorney Ty Frankel is just such a man. Even before discovering his professional path there was a driving force within Frankel defined by an unwavering desire to help others.
There is something uniquely organic, even poetic in the fact that the very act of seeking ways to serve others and contribute to his community led Frankel to law school and eventually a dynamic and altruistic career.
“I think I was always the type of person looking for ways be involved in the community,” he says modestly. “In some ways it felt selfish because I drew energy from being able to help people. Similarly, my interest in politics was a natural result of just being concerned with those things affecting my community.”
Today Frankel, a shareholder in the firm of Bonnett, Fairbourn, Friedman & Balint PC, is considered one of the most successful and respected employment law and class action attorneys in the Southwest, representing clients before federal and state courts and agencies in a wide variety of class action and employment law matters.
However, long before embarking on this rewarding legal career, in fact while still an undergraduate studying political science and communications at Boston College, Frankel not only became involved in a fascinating and historically significant immigration internship but one that also proved to play a decisive role in helping him choose the course that would eventually lead to such an illustrious career.
