In addition to his successful career as a plaintiff’s attorney, Frank Azar also enjoys imported cigars, old movies, and playing golf in the US and internationally.

Frank Azar was born in Pueblo, Colorado, grew up in Trinidad, Colorado, and currently resides in Aurora, Colorado where he owns and operates his own Law Practice, Franklin D. Azar & Associates, founded in 1983.
Growing up, Mr. Azar idolized his father, an attorney in the Trinidad area. Back then, all anyone needed to do to advertise was place a sign that said “Attorney at Law” outside of his or her establishment, and that was good enough. Nowadays, it isn’t as easy, which is why Frank took to the airwaves, and began advertising on television. His signature “Strong Arm” commercials can be seen pretty much any time of the day, and on all of the major networks. Advertising in such a manner has yielded great success and recognition for the Denver based attorney, and may be what brought you here in the first place!
While in Trinidad, Mr. Azar worked on his grandfather’s ranch, the “Saliba Ranch,” located near Walsenburg, Colorado. While working for his grandfather, Frank mended fences, and watered and branded cattle, but the most important thing Frank Azar learned working on the ranch was the importance of diligence and hard work.
