Biography

Bridget Grotz chose the legal profession to empower injured people and help them obtain the justice they deserve. After earning a degree in English and before entering law school, she served as a volunteer in the Peace Corps, teaching reading to primary school students in Samoa. Her deep respect for people of varied backgrounds, cultures, and experiences plays a vital role in her law practice and enhances her representation of individuals from all walks of life.

Bridget is an empathetic counselor and compassionate advocate for her clients, dedicating her persuasive writing and research abilities to their cases. In many instances, Bridget represents several clients from group home entities or organizations and addresses numerous legal issues and multiple defendants. She approaches these complex cases with precision, making each client’s case clear, strong, and effective.

Bridget is committed to identifying responsible individuals and entities to ensure offenders are held liable for their actions. She gets great satisfaction from knowing she plays a part in holding corporations and people in power accountable for their grievous acts. She also feels rewarded when the firm’s work results in changes that prevent others from being injured. Her contributions to PCVA’s cutting-edge work not only raise awareness of the prevalence of sexual abuse against minors, but also make a difference in how state legislators view statutes of limitations in bringing childhood sex abuse cases to light.
