Grace Allen

Grace is a passionate advocate for her clients across all aspects of family and probate law. Now, an Associate Attorney at Apex, she began her legal career at Apex as a Law Clerk. Grace brings a wealth of experience and deep commitment to children’s rights and family stability. Grace has interned at numerous Bay Area Organizations such as the Contra Costa Public Defenders, Public Advocates, Inc. (nonprofit law firm), Bay Area Legal Aid, Disability Rights California, and East Bay Community Law Center, laying a solid foundation for her career. At each of these organizations, she focused on creating stability for clients including children within the legal system and advocating for their rights and well-being. This focus has deeply influenced her approach to family law, making her a compassionate and determined advocate for her clients.

Grace has experience in matters including:

  • Dissolution of Marriage
  • Resolution of parenting and custody matters
  • Determination of child and spousal support
  • Division and characterization of property and income
  • Petitions for probate

Grace’s approach to family law is holistic, recognizing that legal issues are often intertwined with emotional and financial concerns. Grace’s strategy is tailored to the individual needs of her clients, with a focus on clear communication, thorough legal research, and resolute representation.

Grace engages in outdoor activities with her family and friends in her spare time. On the weekends, she typically explores the trails of the Marin Headlands or polar plunges in the Pacific. Closer to home, Grace enjoys playing with her dog, Cowboy, at the dog park.

In the winter, if you’re looking for Grace, she’s likely speeding down the slopes in Tahoe . . . don’t blink or you’ll miss her!
