Why Family Law

Family law is about people, not paperwork. I like working with individuals, being an advocate, interacting with people, listening. At Purcell Stowell, I’m constantly reaffirmed I’m in the right area of law.

"My parents are both elementary school teachers, and this played a huge role in shaping who I am. They both love their jobs, and it was important for me to find a job I love, too.”

More About Olivia

Olivia Grim pulls from a unique range of experiences to help family law clients find resolution to problems through legal solutions. She is the daughter of two school teachers—an elementary teacher and an adapted physical education teacher—who passed along to her a lifelong love of learning and instilled in her the desire to work directly with people.

She studied English Literature and was on the Women’s Water Polo Team at Long Beach State before going on to study law at Pacific McGeorge School of Law where she received several scholarships for her academic achievements.

Olivia pursued a variety of roles beyond the classroom to build legal skills that she could use in the real world. She was a Legal Intern for the San Joaquin District Attorney’s Office and a Legal Extern for My Sister’s House in Sacramento—a Sacramento agency that provides a safe haven for Asian and Pacific Islanders and other underserved women and children experiencing violence, assault and human trafficking. She also worked as a Judicial Extern for The Honorable Judge Ueda, Sacramento Superior Court, where she conducted research on child custody, child support, domestic violence restraining orders, and other issues.
