When the odds and evidence are stacked against clients in criminal cases, they need a competent, zealous, experienced trial lawyer. Frank Mascagni, III was born in Greenville, Mississippi in the late 1940s. After graduating from the University of Louisville School of Law in 1976, he served as Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney, prosecuting white collar crimes and career criminals before entering private practice in 1979. Frank devotes the majority of his practice to criminal law defense in state and federal courts, handling a variety of litigation — from DUI jury trials to defense of death penalty cases. Frank recently tried two 5-6 week death penalty cases, helping his clients avoid the penalty of death. One of his successful jury trial closing arguments from 2011 may be viewed on YouTube. He remains a passionate and effective litigator.
