Meet Frank Plaut

Written by Coriander Meyer on .

“As a trial lawyer I get to write my own script. That’s the key difference,” Frank Plaut explains of his work in the courtroom and on stage.

After 36 years working as a trial lawyer and 18 as a judge, Frank has his fair share of wisdom to share about, well, everything. His ridiculously prestigious credentials don’t hurt — after getting an economics degree from Northwestern University, Frank studied economics in Germany thanks to a Fulbright grant. He followed that up with a degree from Harvard Law, and later became president of the Colorado Bar Association after teaching law for several years.
