Grace Cleveland

Grace was born and raised on the Semiahmoo peninsula and is thrilled to be living and working in her hometown. Practicing in the areas of estate planning, administration, and litigation, Grace works with her clients and their tax and financial advisors to create and implement comprehensive and individualized wealth preservation and transfer solutions. She advises personal representatives, trustees and beneficiaries on the multitude of issues that can arise in the administration of an estate or trust, and regularly represents her clients in the BC Supreme Court.

When away from the office, Grace can be found volunteering with the Canadian Bar Association, the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation, and the BCSPCA. Grace also serves on the board of directors for the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce and as a Rotarian with the Semiahmoo Rotary Club. Otherwise, Grace is happiest when she is making the most of the West Coast lifestyle or out exploring new trails with her two dogs.

Grace has a BA and a MA, both in English, from the University of British Columbia in Kelowna, BC, as well as a JD from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, AB. She is also proud to be a Certified Executor Advisor (CEA) and a Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) candidate.
