Grace Chin is a lawyer who had gone to the same college as Daniel. During her time there, Grace wore glasses and had no sense of style. Daniel never noticed her, until he realized that he needed her help with passing an upcoming exam, so he asked Grace out on a date, but ended up standing her up. She'd never really gotten over what he'd done to her, so she planned on getting back at him by refusing to help Daniel's father to prove his innocence in the Fey Sommers murder.
She agreed to take the case only after Daniel fully apologized for standing her up during their college days. She and Daniel briefly had a relationship, which ended (along with her involvement in Bradford's case) when Alexis threatened to expose their affair. But more than likely, the final straw was when Alexis insulted her, to which she gave her a snappy come back about her surgery.
