Helping Client's in Family Law Practice Find Hope Again

Melissa A. Grund represents people who are going through the worst time in lives.

She also helps them rebuild their self-confidence and get back on their feet. 

“You’re really helping people find hope again,” Grund says. “Because when you go through a divorce, as you can imagine, it’s akin to experiencing a death in the family. You can easily feel that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But I’m a naturally very positive and hopeful person, and I try to give that to my clients, in addition to great legal advice.”

Grund joined Grund & Leavitt in 2006. Since then, she has primarily represented clients in dissolution of marriage proceedings involving complex financial issues, corporate valuations, non-marital asset protection and child custody disputes.

In less than 10 years, Grund has become not only a leader in her firm but also a leader in the legal community. In 2014, she became a partner at Grund & Leavitt. In the same year, she was selected as one of the “40 Under 40 Attorneys to Watch,” by Law Bulletin Publishing Company.
