Grace has been an attorney since 1993 and has tried cases on both sides in court. He began his career in San Antonio in private practice and joined the the Lubbock County Criminal District Attorney’s office in 2001 actually working for Judge Sowder when he was Lubbock’s Criminal District Attorney, then in 2010 Grace worked in the Litigation Section of the City Attorney’s Office.

Mr. Grace says that “he understands how important it is for judges to follow the law and avoid legislating from the bench. The citizens of Lubbock deserve and expect a knowledgeable, fair, and impartial judge to uphold the rule of law. I will be that judge.”
