A former prosecutor with an unparalleled record of success, Nancy Grace has appeared on every television network, dispensing her firebrand take on the modern justice system. Nancy Grace was named one of the most impactful and powerful women in entertainment by both leading industry trade magazines, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.
Grace's first book, Objection!, became an instant New York Times bestseller and her two subsequent novels, The Eleventh Victim and Death on the D-List, were also New York Times bestsellers, and a television movie adaptation of The Eleventh Victim premiered on Lifetime.
She is the recipient of several American Women in Radio & Television "Gracie Awards" for her Nancy Grace Investigates primetime report on Court TV and has been awarded the "Individual Achievement/Best Program Host" honor. Grace has also been widely recognized by many notable organizations for her advocacy work on behalf of victims' rights.

She became a Law Review graduate and received her degree in constitutional and criminal law. Additionally, she donated her time to help staff the hotline at an Atlanta battered women's center for over 10 years.
Nancy Grace initially came to television from the Atlanta Fulton County District Attorney's Office, where she served more than a decade as a special prosecutor of felony cases involving murder, rape, child molestation and arson. Known for her authentic sensibility and
for not holding back her opinion on high-profile cases, she was tapped to co- host Court TV's Cochran and Grace and, later, the live daily trial coverage program, Closing Arguments. She also presided over the daytime hit Swift Justice with Nancy Grace, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination.
Now, everything important in Grace's life - including her unwavering crusade for true justice - comes back to family. Since her marriage and the birth of her children, Nancy says, "I feel even more passionate about fighting for victims."
