I am Rachel Flanagan Frost, Esq., founder and lead attorney at Rachel Flanagan Frost Attorney at Law. Since opening the doors of my Law Office, I have promoted a simple goal: to help people throughout the Hudson Valley intelligently prepare for the future. Whether building an estate plan to avoid probate down the road or helping families address the needs of aging loved ones, I take a hands-on, personalized approach that helps me get to know you and your family as we reach solutions to fit your unique set of needs and goals.


There is no perfect formula or single solution when it comes to estate planning. Every family is different. That is why I provide the guidance, education and resources necessary to draft plans and pursue solutions that protect your family.

When preparing your estate, work with an attorney you feel comfortable with. In my practice, I enjoy meeting with people and learning their stories. I want you to feel at ease, free to ask questions and to come away confident in the plan we build.

Meet with me for a free initial consultation by calling 845-896-0835 or by submitting an online contact form. My office is located in Fishkill in Dutchess County and I represent clients throughout the Hudson Valley region of New York, including but not limited to Westchester, Orange, Putnam and Dutchess Counties.
