Before our founder, T.C. Frost, started Frost Bank in 1868, he practiced law in Texas. Frost – one of the 60 largest U.S. banks – is the banking subsidiary of Cullen/Frost Bankers, Inc. The $32.3 billion company operates more than 130 financial centers across Texas, and recently announced it would nearly double its size in the Houston region. Banks – especially Texas banks – don’t get to be 150 years old unless they succeed by helping their customers succeed, and Frost is well-known for its award-winning customer service. Our Houston bankers have more than 25 years of expertise in working with the legal industry and with law firms of all sizes.
