The former prosecutor also is the host of current affairs program Nancy Grace on HLN; previously she hosted Court TV's Closing Arguments and the syndicated court program, Swift Justice with Nancy Grace.

Grace is known for her fiery brand of legal commentary; she has appeared on countless talk shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View and Today, among others.

Grace's profile has been higher lately thanks to her dogged coverage the Casey Anthony trial, which was a near daily feature on Nancy Grace. The trial elevated the profile of the case and boosted ratings for her show. In July, when Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her daughter Caylee, Grace spoke out against the verdict.

She has also written three New York Times bestsellers: 2005’s Objection!, which looked at the legal system and the cases Grace has covered, and the novels The Eleventh Victim and Death on the D-List.

Grace is also represented by attorney Larry Shire
