Grace advocates for people that have been harmed by corporations. Grace primarily represents whistleblowers fighting against government fraud in complex False Claims Act litigation. She has also represented tens of thousands of employees, retirees, and beneficiaries in class-action ERISA litigation against some of the nation’s largest banks, insurance companies, and investment management firms. By holding these corporations accountable, she has helped recover over $40 million for her clients.

Grace is dedicated to improving wellbeing in the legal community. Grace played an integral role in the creation of Nichols Kaster’s Wellness Committee. She leads the firm’s wellness initiatives and ensures employees have access to a variety of wellness resources. Grace currently volunteers and serves on the Board of Directors for Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (Minnesota’s Lawyers Assistance Program). In that role, Grace shares her personal experience navigating wellbeing and mental health issues to help other attorneys facing similar challenges. Grace also serves as the co-chair of the American Association for Justice New Lawyers Division Mental Health Committee where she organizes wellbeing programs and events for plaintiffs’ attorneys across the nation.

Pro bono work is also a meaningful part of Grace’s practice. Through the Volunteer Lawyers Network, she represents clients seeking expungement of their eviction records to help them obtain safe and affordable housing.
