California’s Original

Workers’ Compensation

Defense Firm

For 75 years, Hanna Brophy has been focused on one thing: workers’ compensation defense law
in California. Such focus results in expertise. By concentrating on workers’
compensation cases, we’ve been able to stay ahead of the constantly evolving Labor
Code and case law.



Marissa Fernandez is an associate at the firm’s Los Angeles office. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley. Before becoming an attorney, Marissa spent several years working with Hanna Brophy as a paralegal. In 2016, she decided to attend law school through the two-year accelerated SCALE program at Southwestern Law School. Throughout Southwestern, Marissa not only mentored fellow students as an Ambassador and teaching assistant for evidence and contracts, but also volunteered extensively. She provided legal help to low income individuals through small claims clinics, expungement clinics, VITA clinics, and Bet Tzedek Legal Services.

Even as an established firm, we are committed to using technology tools that allow us to work quickly, facilitate better communication between our workers compensation defense attorneys and teams, and get faster results for our clients.
