“My commitment to my clients goes beyond processing paperwork and filing documents on their behalf. I want them to feel empowered in the process and know that we are in it together.”
Hunter Grolman is an Associate in the firm’s Family Law practice group. She handles a wide variety of family law matters, for all manner of family types and structures. In her practice, Hunter focuses on a client-centered approach that prioritizes helping people feel empowered during difficult and often overwhelming times.
Prior to joining Paley Rothman, Hunter assisted low-income DC residents with legal issues during a series of internships with nonprofit organizations like Bread for the City, Break the Cycle, and the Network for Victim Recovery of DC. She spent the majority of her time working on domestic violence cases covering issues from protective orders and custody to housing. That experience gave her a close perspective on the effects abuse can have on the entire family, and she remains particularly passionate about the law’s ability to protect survivors of abuse.
Hunter earned her J.D. at the American University Washington College of Law, where she graduated cum laude in 2019. While studying there, she served as a Note and Comment Editor for the Journal of Gender, Social Policy and the Law and enjoyed working with younger students to help improve their writing skills. She also earned a B.A. from the College of William and Mary in 2016, where she double-majored in English and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies. When not in the office, Hunter enjoys trying out new baking recipes, reading mystery novels, and spending time at home with her fiancé and their two extremely spoiled cats.
