Stebner & Associates Overview
At Stebner and Associates, our attorneys have more than 30 years of experience in elder abuse litigation. Our core belief is that elders should be allowed to keep their dignity and, to the greatest extent possible, maintain their independence until the end of their lives. Stebner & Associates is a recognized elder abuse litigation law firm focused on holding nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home health agencies and hospitals accountable. Our San Francisco elder abuse attorneys advocate passionately for protecting the rights of the elderly. We are compassionate and aggressive lawyers capable of handling the most complex elder abuse cases.
In 1987, Kathryn Stebner, the founder of Stebner and Associates in San Francisco, filed the first elder abuse lawsuit in California history. Since that time, her commitment to the practice of elder law has grown beyond the confines of her law office. Since 1985, elder law attorney Kathryn Stebner has been in private practice emphasizing elder abuse and medical malpractice litigation. That passion began early in her life as she was raised in part by her grandparents. Our founder is licensed to practice in both California and Oregon. She is a frequent speaker and author on elder abuse litigation, as well as a law school teacher, mediator and advocate.
For the past four years, she has been involved in working with a legislative team on issues related to California long-term care, state policies and laws. She is the author of “Practice and Procedures in Actions Against Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly,” a chapter in the CEB publication California Elder Law Litigation: An Advocate’s Guide. Ms. Stebner also received California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform’s Legal Advocacy Award in 2001 for recognition of her efforts on behalf of California long-term care residents.
