For over 65 years, Frame & Frame Attorneys at Law has been serving the legal needs of our community. We provide services, often to several generations of the same family, for thoughtful planning and during times of crises. We are proud to serve as your family’s lawyer and trusted advisor. Frame & Frame focuses on three core areas of legal service:

Estate/Probate/Elder Law

Everyone should have a will and an estate plan, regardless of your age, income or other demographics. Without an appropriate plan, you have no control over the distribution of your assets, who will administer your estate, or who will care for your children. We help you create a plan that will protect and provide for your loved ones, in accordance with your wishes.

Our Maryland estate planning & probate attorneys have helped hundreds of personal representatives probate estates. We have also helped hundreds of personal representatives probate estates, ranging from simple wills to complicated trusts. We provide a variety of services, catered specifically to your needs, including:

  • Wills and Trusts
  • Financial Powers of Attorney
  • Healthcare Powers of Attorney
  • Asset Protection
  • Medicaid Planning
  • Revocable Living trusts
  • Irrevocable Trusts
  • Special Needs Trusts
  • Estate Administration; and
  • Probate

Elder law deals with a variety of legal issues typically faced by individuals as they age. Asset protection, rising medical problems, hospital stays, independent living, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities are just some of the concerns we can help address.

Family Law & Guardianship

Family law and guardianship issues are complex and often affect every member of the family, so we work with you to understand your needs and provide the guidance that will best serve you and your family. Family law encompasses:

  • Divorce and spousal support,
  • Custody and visitation,
  • Child support, and
  • Guardianships.

Family law issues involving children should be handled in a way that keeps the interests of the children in mind. Our firm protects your rights, while working to obtain a solution that is in your best interests and the best interests of your family.

There are many reasons why a guardianship may become necessary – an adult may become incapacitated temporarily or permanently and may need someone to handle his or her affairs. In other instances, a parent may not be able to care for a child due to illness, drug abuse, incarceration or severe financial problems; or it may be that a minor child receives an inheritance. In such situations, a guardianship may need to be established. Our firm works to recommend the best course of action, based on your situation, while balancing the sensitive and personal nature of these matters.

Experienced. Respected. Connected. Trusted.

For over 65 years, we have served the needs of our local community. Our long-standing tradition is to meet with each client personally to discuss your case and thoroughly understand your needs. The relationships we develop with our clients often last a lifetime because we are trusted for your needs today and entrusted to serve you and your family for generations to come.

  • As a retired Maryland State Trooper with 26 years of investigative experience, including the Maryland State Prosecutor's Office and the Maryland Board of Nursing, I can attest to the highly qualified legal team of Frame & Frame, LLC., located in Anne Arundel County and on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Tara Frame represented me in the contesting of a Will. She was extremely knowledgeable, kept me informed during the entire process and was the epitome of the 'due diligence factor' which is vital for a competent attorney. Most important of all, her sincerity and interest in my case was obvious during my initial visit to her office. Ms. Frame warrants a 'Five Star Rating' in my opinion and I would recommend her for all aspects of civil litigation.

    — James Matteo

    — Michael Boyd
  • I highly recommend Tara Frame and her associates. I wanted an attorney who could understand my concerns and help me to understand the impact of the actions I was taking. I also wanted someone who was competent and knowledgeable. Ms. Frame satisfied those requirements completely, and was also confident in her approach to the resolution of difficult legal concerns, another valuable characteristic. She has assisted me with estate planning and real estate title matters over the last 2 years. The problems were extensive, and there were 3 properties in 3 states. Through it all, she was competent, professional, and helpful in providing advice and guidance to me. Her legal experience helped to ensure that my legal matters were resolved effectively, and she was very thorough in her review of all of my concerns. She made sure that I knew all of my options and how each would affect my personal situation. I have complete confidence in her answers to any of my questions. It's one thing to recommend her to the general public, but I even recommended her to my family members and one is planning to use her services this summer. I felt very comfortable with Ms. Frame handling my legal affairs and again, I highly recommend her----she is my attorney of choice.

    — Karen
  • So great to work with. Very helpful and understanding. Easy to make appointments convenient for me. Making sure I have everything taken care of.

    — Betty Lee
  • Professional and courteous until the end...Got the job done and was on top of everything. I was in an estate issue when my husband passed away last year, without warning. Without going into details Tara and her staff helped me get to the point where the estate was in order (since my husband had no will at the time of his death it made a lot of issues between family members). Tara listened to every detail, helped me sort through all the little issues that would be brought up, filed the paperwork, corresponded with the other family members that were involved, and brought a final end and freeing feeling to this issue after a year and a half. I absolutely love Tara and her assistant Rachel, they are the kindest caring and knowledgeable people in the law sector that I have come across. I will be using her and her law firm for all my legal matters from now on. Though we have a professional relationship I feel as if Tara and her staff have become friends as well, I can't say enough about them. All that being said I would tell anyone and everyone to use Frame & Frame for any legal issue they have!! Thank you soooo much Tara and Rachel for everything you have done and accomplished!!!!

    — Kim Hayes
  • In the chaotic, emotional turmoil of a domestic dispute you need someone you can trust and to give you accurate, thorough and honest counsel. Tara Frame is an exceptional attorney who is extremely experienced in all aspects of her field. If you are seeking family law knowledge, I highly recommend the Frame and Frame team.

  • After the passing of my Mother, I was given a very shocking conflict concerning my mothers' will. Together with your skillful professionalism and hard work, you were able to resolve the issue and in a timely manner. Through each phase of this case you guided me in getting the right information needed to win our case. Over all I had complete confidence in you and how the case was handled. In the end the case was won! In the future, when it becomes necessary for needs of a Lawyer your name will always be at the top of the list.

  • I wanted to express my gratitude to you both. I have never had anyone truly stand up for me and fight for me like this. I understand it’s a job and that you will be compensated for all this work, but I’m very happy that you’re both working on this for me. You definitely will receive recommendations from me to anyone who is looking for attorney services.

  • Ms. Frame is an exceptional attorney. My case was complicated due to the other parent being out of state. Ms. Frame was so incredible knowledgeable and well known within the court system. I felt very well informed and extremely prepared for every step in my legal process."

  • Constructively agressive, knowledgeable, and through, are the words that best describe our family lawyer, Tara Frame. She is an legal expert in the area of child custody and child rights. She consistently files the legal documents promptly and has been a champion in the court room."

  • I first met Tara around 1994 when she took on my child custody and divorce case. It was a very difficult situation and when the case started my son was about 4 years old. Tara handled everything professionally and continually looked out for both our best interests.

  • Whether stepping into an horrendous attorney backed out or defending me against a fraudulent $1.2 million dollar law suit, the Frame and Frame attorneys have always performed profesionally, and demonstrated respect and empathy. They can be trusted to protect you and your interests."

  • I am extremely pleased with Atty. Redmond's services. She responded quickly to telephone and e-mails, explained everything I didn't understand, and made what I feared would be a difficult process seem quite easy to navigate. I would definitely recommend Redmond and Frame & Frame to anyone in need of an attorney.

  • Dear Erica -Thank you for your help after my car accident. I would never have been able to settle it on my own. Thank you for the time spent working on case - the phone calls, medical reports, dealing with insurance companies, etc., and trying to get the best settlement possible. Thank you for answering my questions and quickly returning my phone calls. I appreciate how you put me at ease, so I did not have to worry about all this. Thank you for acting in a very professional, but friendly manner. I enjoyed working with you and your staff.

Attorney Erica

Tara K. Frame

Senior Attorney

For as long as I remember, I wanted to be an attorney. My father and founder of the firm, Vernon Frame, was a practicing attorney for over 50 years serving the community before he retired in 2002 at the age of 80. I grew up watching him help the residents of Anne Arundel County, primarily Pasadena, Glen Burnie and surrounding areas, when they needed legal advice or representation.

Attorney Erica

Erica Redmond

Associate Attorney

I began my legal career with the intention of becoming a business law attorney, as I had received a Business Management Degree. However, while still in law school, fate stepped in and I was placed at the Division of Social Services, Legal Division.
