Although she is a younger practitioner, Grace was trained by the best and is an aggressive and fearless advocate. Grace has represented clients charged with the most minor to the most serious offences and she appears daily before Magistrates, District and Supreme courts and has experience in trials, sentences, Supreme Court bail applications and appeals. Grace also has experience in domestic violence and RSPCA matters.
Grace is at home in the courtroom and her skill as an advocate compliments her passion for social justice and delivering results for her clients.
