4th District Supreme Court Judge – Teneka Frost

Judge Teneka Frost has held many important positions throughout her career as a lawyer. She’s served as a City Court Judge in Schenectady, and as a staff attorney for the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York, as the co-chair of the Equal Justice in the Courts Initiative for the Fourth Judicial district, and as the Chief Administrative Law Judge and Director of the Office of Administrative Hearings at the NY Department of State.

But Judge Frost’s contributions haven’t been confined to the courtroom. In 2021 she established the United Against Crime Action Network — a court monitored mentoring program established to steer young offenders away from crime and towards a brighter future.

Judge Frost’s commitment to bettering the lives of others is rooted in her experience of growing up in poverty. But her ability to affect that betterment is rooted in her impressive education. Judge Frost graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Political Science and African American Studies. From there she enrolled in a dual degree program at the Albany Law School and Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, where she received her J.D. and her Masters of Public Administration, later completing a fellowship at the Government Law Center in Albany where she provided policy analysis regarding lobbying state-wide lobbying laws.
