Welcome to the website of Grancell, Stander, Reubens, Thomas and Kinsey, APC. We are proud to defend California’s employers, insurers, third-party administrators, and public entities in the areas of workers’ compensation, subrogation, safety officer industrial disability retirement, Cal-OSHA safety violations, and employment law including wage and hour claims, ADA/FEHA compliance, and workplace accommodation. Unlike some of our competitors, we have never strayed from our exclusive representation of the employer and insurer community.

Originally founded in 1979, we have expanded our practice areas in order to fully address our clients’ rapidly changing needs. Our objective is to be the most innovative, state-wide, full service defense firm committed to the highest standards of practice. And we have the results to prove it.

We currently have ten offices covering all of California. Each of our attorneys has valuable local knowledge – not only about Boards, courts and judges, but also about treating and examining physicians, opposing counsel, expert witnesses, and other litigation tools.


We are dedicated to supporting and advancing diversity.  By recognizing differences and encouraging the active and full participation of people of every culture, ethnicity, national origin, race, color, religion, gender, age, disability and sexual orientation in our business processes, we make better decisions, build more positive relationships, and strengthen our opportunities for success by bringing together the best of the best, regardless of background.


We have incorporated the latest technology to maximize our case management and communications capabilities while maintaining the highest levels of data security and integrity.  We maintain our own servers in a world class designed and engineered N+1 (minimum), seismically neutral colocation facility which allows us to provide our clients with files quickly, and efficiently. By staying up-to-date on developing technologies and balancing that with proven solutions, we are able to maintain a superior level of security and data availability. Read More
