Grecia focuses her practice on complex commercial litigation, with an emphasis on disputes involving public and private construction, and government contracting matters. She has experience with litigation before federal and state courts, bid protests, and compliance and enforcement matters relating to federal, state, and local regulations affecting construction projects. Prior to joining Mintz, Grecia was an associate and earlier a summer associate in the Construction and Government Contracts Practices of a global law firm. As an associate, she worked on litigation, transactional, compliance, and enforcement matters involving construction. In that role, she successfully defended a large contractor against a competitor's post-bid protest of a construction contract valued at more than $100 million. While earning her JD, Grecia served as a general counsel division intern with the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office. Grecia was named a Community Fellow and Dean's Fellow in law school and served in several leadership roles, including programming co-chair of the UCI Public Interest Law Fund and co-chair of the Latinx Law Student Association. She also graduated with pro bono honors, in recognition of her participation in several pro bono initiatives, which included the Small Business Development Project with Bet Tzedek Legal Services, the Orrick Permanency Project with the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, and UCI's Saturday Academy of Law. Before law school, Grecia taught elementary school in Los Angeles as a Teach for America corps member.
