About Grace

Legal Assistant

A Central New York native, Grace comes to Nave Law Firm with a background in criminal defense and a passion for advocacy. She earned her degree in legal studies and communications from Ithaca College. Ms. Trepasso was also a part of the executive boards for several social advocacy groups, such as the One Love Foundation and Take Back the Night. During her time at Ithaca College, she also had the opportunity to present her research on improving federal sexual harassment laws at the 2019 National Conference for Undergraduate Research at Kennesaw State University in Georgia and the 2019 Whalen Symposium at Ithaca College.

Since graduation, she has worked in smaller criminal defense firms in the Syracuse area and handled many cases ranging from vehicle and traffic infractions to homicide cases. She jumps into any project, no matter the size, with both feet and loves to research legal information. She is excited to expand her professional and legal skills and become an asset to the firm operationally and as a paralegal.
