Judge Frizell’s passion for justice began at 12-years of age. For as long as she can remember, she always debated current issues with her parents, who saw this as a talent and nurtured her abilities, encouraging her to pursue the field of law.
Her mother was a registered nurse and midwife. Frizell’s father was hired as the first African American architectural engineer by the City of Fort Worth and served as a pastor. Collectively, they taught her that the greatest gifts impacted the total life outcomes of others.
As she matured, she saw that some people were afraid to speak up for their rights, solidifying her desire to become an advocate for those who felt overwhelmed or lost in the legal system. She dedicated herself to serve as a voice for those who had no voice.
