April Grunden

Meet April

I am the anti-attorney.  I buck the system at every turn because I believe the system is broken.  I have seen the old way of dictating to families and business owners how their plans should work.  I've seen how attorneys run roughshod over clients. Enough is enough.

I want to protect my family.  I want to know the rules and the options.  I want to decide what is best and understand the documents I sign.  I want to work with my advisors, not be a victim.  I want things to be as easy as possible on my family when I can no longer take care of them.

I believe most people feel the same way.  That's why I started Grunden Law Office, LLC.  My goal is to make the estate planning process easy and comfortable by explaining the rules of the road; offering advice; empowering my clients to protect their families; delivering a complete plan that accomplishes their goals; and follow-up to be there as things change.

No fluff.  No confusing legal jargon. My passion is to build lasting client relationships with clients who feel they have real choices and understand how their plan works.  Help when it's needed and periodic reviews to ensure a lasting legacy.  Security and comfort in knowing it's taken care of. That's my passion and my promise.


"I have met with many attorneys in my lifetime and felt inferior in almost every way - afraid to ask a dumb question, not completely understanding the legal verbiage, not self-assured enough to know exactly that I needed or wanted. Well, I'm very happy to write that I've found an amazing attorney and staff member in April Grunden and Christie Browning. They were very hospitable individuals, extremely knowledgeable, eager to adjust to my personality, have the unusual ability to listen and answer questions, quick to meet my needs, and had wonderful sense of humor. Best of all, they were informative. I received an education concerning my estate-planning endeavors. I actually knew what was legally put in place and why. I have been so excited about my new 'attorney find' that I've told many friends about my pleasant experience at Grunden Law Office, LLC." – Cherryll
