About

To provide high quality capital defense to indigents facing the death penalty in Texas.

The Gulf Region Advocacy Center, or GRACE, is an independent, client-centered, Houston-based charity that provides high quality capital defense to indigents facing the death penalty at trial or retrial. Beginning with our life-saving representation of Calvin “sleeping lawyer” Burdine when he returned to Harris County in 2002 for retrial, to the dramatic life verdict in the 2008 jury trial of Juan Quintero Perez for murder of a police officer, GRACE has relied upon private donations and volunteer labor to bring the methodologies of successful capital defense offices around the country to bear in the bloodiest courthouse in America.

1. GRACE is an independent, client-centered, Houston-based charity that provides capital defense for the indigent.
