Frank Montes de Oca

Attorney
Troutman Pepper

Community Outreach


Frank Montes de Oca is a proud member of Atlanta, Georgia’s Hispanic community, where he resides with his wife of 10 years.  Those who know Frank best describe him as passionate about annoying his wife, obsessed with consuming an alarming amount of coffee in the morning (usually Café Bustelo), and the nightmare of teenagers in neighborhood pickup games.  

Frank is also a second year associate attorney at Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders LLP, focusing his practice on the representation of lenders and borrowers in commercial loan transactions involving a wide variety of industries.  Frank was born in Las Tunas, Cuba and grew up in Orlando, Florida.  During those times when Frank is not deep into migraine inducing commercial contracts, he can be found searching the recesses of financial market information while looking for the next get rich quick scheme.
