Meet Award-Winning Injury Attorney Grant Zehnder

John M. O'Brien & Associates P.C. is now the O'Brien & Zehnder Law Firm with the recent promotion of Associate Attorney Grant R. Zehnder to Partner. Grant has been with the firm for six years and has been a member of the State Bar of California since 2010. The addition of his name to the firm's letterhead recognizes Grant's substantial contributions over the years and solidifies his commitment to serving the members of this community.

Grant grew up in Elk Grove and attended Elk Grove High School. His family has called Elk Grove (and the surrounding area) "home" for nearly 80 years and across five generations. His elevation to the partner of O'Brien's Elk Grove-based firm continues the family's legacy of service, leadership, and business in the community. Grant credits his grandfather, John Zehnder, Sr., for teaching him the importance of community involvement and service. "My Grandpa Johnny lived to serve others. He loved this community and set the example for our entire family."

John Zehnder was a rancher and dairyman who also served as a volunteer firefighter in the Elk Grove Fire Department from 1951 to 1996. A local park and a school are named in honor of "John Zehnder, Sr.", due to his years of donation, service, and volunteerism. "I'm just happy I can continue my grandfather's legacy and help the people in and around this community in some way. Rooting my law practice here allows me to honor that."

Why Trust Grant Zehnder with your Injury Claim?

Grant graduated from the University of California, San Diego in 2006. He attended law school at McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, where he graduated with Great Distinction and was a member of the McGeorge Law Review. As a result of Grant's outstanding scholastic achievement, he was also selected to the Traynor Honor Society and Order of the Coif (Top 10%).

Grant joined John M. O'Brien & Associates in 2013. Since that time, he has been integral to the success of the firm and its clients. Below are just a few of Grant's recent successes for his clients:

  • $3.075 million recovered on behalf of a 39-year-old commercial truck driver who suffered facial fractures and vision impairment in one eye in an industrial incident when a five-pound stainless steel plug was blown from a hose that was pressurized without his knowledge. Initially, the company alleged that the driver was at fault for the incident, which Grant was able to disprove.
  • $850,000 settlement for a 47-year-old woman who suffered injuries to her shoulder and lower back in a multi-car collision on Interstate 5, which ultimately required surgery. The insurance company's initial offer was $20,272.
  • $450,000 recovered for a 46-year-old woman who suffered injuries to her wrist and right knee when another driver ran a red light and broadsided the car she was in.

The O'Brien & Zehnder Law Firm has principal offices in Elk Grove and represents individuals in personal injury, wrongful death, and product liability cases.
