The Hawley Troxell attorney oversees all matters regarding intellectual property, and sums up his well-rounded endeavors on his Twitter account with a simple: “Author, speaker and Internet IT and IP lawyer who loves the blues, Ray Bradbury, short stories, and his wife, daughter and dogs.”
When Frazer isn’t blogging or speaking for a host of legal related events and conferences, he is penning short stories and delving into the intricate research that colors his science fiction writing that delves into medical mysteries. He’s also big on doing lots of “dog stuff.”
The University of Utah and Brigham Young University alum graduated from the University of California Hastings College of Law before returning to his roots in Boise Idaho.
He says those roots form a foundation that’s very old-school. It centers around God, family and country.
“I was raised in Boise, went to public schools here, and chose to come back home after I finished my education in 1989. I have never regretted that decision and I work every day to try and make Boise a better place by looking for ways to help students, start-ups and others who might need access to my type of legal services.”
Frazer wears several hats but never lost his passion for the legal work that he does. He maintains a deep curiosity for the work that allows him to help build value for industries, businesses and individuals.
“I actually help to create value. I’m not just litigating. I’m not just solving problems. I’m not just writing contracts. I’m not just filing a lawsuit. I’m actually helping clients create wealth by covering and identifying ways of protecting and monetizing intellectual property. It’s really rewarding to see a client come in with nothing but an idea – and five years later we have fully identified, protected, and monetized that intellectual property and made an asset out of thin air.”
Frazer also brings value to his community. The Martindale Hubbell AV-rated attorney and Mountain States Super Lawyer loves to fill his free time with volunteer work that centers around his own passions.
If he’s not writing or digging into research for his fiction work, the past volunteer lawyer for the Court Appointed Special Advocates Guardian ad Litem program keeps his mind on all things literary as a member of the board of directors of The Cabin.
“I do feel strongly about supporting organizations that create opportunities for, and provide services to, the underserved and underrepresented in our community,” he says. “The Cabin accomplishes this by providing writing classes to local children and bringing speakers and authors to Boise who might not otherwise find their way here.”
