Stephen R. Quanrud



Originally from North Dakota, Stephen moved to the Twin Cities to attend college. After graduating and prior to law school, he worked and lived in Shanghai, China, where he taught Math, Social Studies, and English at the local international schools.

Stephen is passionate about preventing his clients from being taken advantage of by large insurance companies. Workers’ compensation is not a handout or welfare – it is the result of a compromise whereby employers avoid paying multi-million-dollar judgments due to negligence. Stephen takes his clients’ entitlement to these benefits very seriously. He takes the time to understand each client’s situation, present their options, and move forward with the client’s best interests and wishes in mind.

In addition to Workers’ Compensation and Long Term Disability, Stephen has a strong background in employment law, employee benefits, health law, and insurance. Because his clients rarely have just one legal issue, it is important to be well-versed in these closely related fields.

Stephen was selected to the Minnesota Rising Stars list in 2020 and 2021, which emphasizes his skill and success at all levels of litigation, including the supreme court.

In Stephen’s spare time, he enjoys archery, travel, mountain biking, CrossFit, and reading spy novels.
