Simmonds Grant is a modern practice with traditional values. Established in Oakham in 1979, we aim to provide a professional legal service at competitive rates in a friendly and accessible way. We have a wide range of expertise.
Melanie Grant, over a period of in excess of 25 years, has built up a reputation as a specialist family lawyer and in 2007 Julia Weber joined the firm to assist particularly in this area of work. Melanie is also a trained collaborative lawyer.
Our aim is to assist clients in achieving settlement of issues arising from the breakdown of relationships in a non adversarial way, whenever possible, respecting particularly the needs of any children.
We can also deal with related matters, such as the sale of property and making a new will.
For an initial, face-to-face consultation, there is a fixed fee of £100 plus vat. Estimates of costs for all matters can be provided after that initial consultation.

But life is not a bed of roses and in a lot of circumstances, especially where you have children from a previous relationship, you need to be practical.
