Grace Cathryn Cretcher is an experienced employment and civil rights attorney with a commitment to the underdog and a passion for meaningful justice. She has an extensive background in women's and LGBT rights advocacy work and significant expertise both before state and federal agency tribunals and as a constitutional, federal and state civil rights law, and wage-and-hour class action litigator.

She has 8 years of litigation experience, both representing clients in federal and state cases in New York and New Jersey and advising attorneys and firms nationwide on federal litigation matters. She is particularly proud to have represented the plaintiffs in Krupa et al. v. Badolato et al., a case before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, which prompted New Jersey to extend its mandated insurance coverage for infertility treatment to women without male partners.

Grace is a former federal law clerk for Judge Timothy S. Black of U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. Of note is her work on the Judge's landmark opinions declaring unconstitutional Ohio's refusal to grant same-sex marriages or recognize those from other states, which were ultimately sustained nationwide by the U.S. Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
