Ryan R. Grace
Attorney Ryan Grace is an aggressive trial attorney who draws on his lengthy career as a former Assistant District Attorney at the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office.  Ryan worked for the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office for more than 10 years starting in February 2009 until January 2020.  During his career as a prosecutor, he litigated over 35 jury trials, countless motion hearings, and dozens of bench trials.  Ryan was eventually promoted to Chief of the Special Victims Unit. In that position, he oversaw all the prosecutions of child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence. Additionally as Chief of the SVU, Ryan was responsible for investigations including oversight of search warrants, wiretaps, and the approval of criminal charges.

As a private attorney Ryan is able to negotiate for very favorable outcomes, and he is also prepared to vigorously contest evidence at trial.  Ryan is extremely familiar with digital, forensic, and medical evidence. He is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State of New Jersey and the United States Supreme Court.  Ryan graduated with honors from both Delaware Law School and St. Joseph’s University. 

Ryan was appointed in 2015 by Delaware County Council to the Delaware County Drug and Alcohol Advisory Board. He is on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and served on the Delaware County Bar Association Board of Directors from 2017-18. Ryan also coaches the mock trial team at a local high school.
