Drs. Gratia P. Schoemakers, J.D., LL.M.: Attorney with GP Schoemakers, PLLC


Born and raised in The Netherlands, Gratia P. Schoemakers, also known as Grace P. Schoemakers, started her legal career in the Netherlands, before permanently relocating to the United States, where she now owns and runs her private practice in the Houston/Galveston area.

Gratia knows what it is to lose a loved one; she lost her godparents prematurely, had her paternal grandmother die without a will, and been faced with the sudden incapacity of a parent, Gratia has first-hand knowledge about the importance of planning and the peace of mind that comes with it, as well as the havoc that ensues due to the lack thereof.

Because of this Gratia decided in 2011 to found GP Schoemakers, PLLC, a law firm focused on the one thing that is most important to most of us; FAMILY.

With more than 15 years of legal experience, having personally seen the emotional toll and financial devastation that poor planning, death, divorce or lack of knowledge can create, Gratia decided to create a modern law firm where family and education comes first. Not only can her love and passion be seen in the enduring personal relationships she has with her clients, her ongoing dedication to the mastery of the law and long-term vision; her compassion to help families, individuals and small business owners plan for the future, is also present to those dealing with a crisis.

As a solo attorney, all her clients, no matter what they are going through, are treated with the compassion and respect we all deserve. She will take care of you from start to beginning, with her unique personal touch, compassion, and solid Christian values.

During an initial consultation, Gratia will sit down with her clients and listen. She will take time to answer your questions thoroughly and honestly so that together a sound strategy can be created to resolve your issue.
