Christian M. Frank Fas, Esq.

I was born and raised in the small, rural town of Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico. Then, I graduated with honors as a Criminology major in 2003 from Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico. Then , I obtained a Juris Doctor degree from the Pontifical Catholic University Law School in 2006, where I graduated with honors, too.

I set out on my own, and established my own law firm in 2007 immediately after being admitted to the legal Bar, where I provided legal counsel and representation to hundreds of USA clients in three main areas:

  • Complex Interstate Divorce and Custody matters in Puerto Rico
  • Breach of Exclusive Distribution Contracts for Products and Services
  • Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act cases

Then, in 2016, I relocated my practice to Denver, to specialize in Asylum Defense and Federal Civil Rights litigation.  As part of my contribution to the legal community, I have published hundreds of legal articles, and earned the recognition of local and national colleagues.

Now, USADefend focuses exclusively on:

Here’s a short list of my achievements:

  • Certified as an SAE automotive mechanic specialized in computerized fuel injection in 1998.
  • Became Puerto Rico’s first broadband cable modem technician in 1999.
  • Installed the first WiFi network at the PUCPR Law School in 2003.
  • Published Puerto Rico’s first law review article on virtual notarization and e-notaries in 2006.
  • Published Puerto Rico’s first online legal blog (called a “blawg” back then) in 2006.
  • Created, collaborated and published Puerto Rico’s first online bar exam review in 2006.
  • Restored 4 vintage Vespa scooters.
  • Became one of Puerto Rico’s first beer homebrewers, and directly collaborated with the establishment of Puerto Rico’s first microbreweries in 2012.
  • Certified as PADI Rescue SCUBA diver in 2014, and achieved over 100 dives in 2015.
  • Rode the entire southwest United States (CO/NM/AZ/UT) two-up on a KLR-650 while tent camping along the way.
  • Travelled to over 45 countries (and counting).

Over a span of 20 years, I’ve also been a serial entrepreneur, owning a diverse portfolio of businesses throughout my career. At first, I sold computer gear out of the trunk of my car, then grew that into and online store, as well as owned a pizzeria and a roadside grill.

These experiences have enriched a deep passion to help others grow and protect what is theirs.
