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.
While you may be working with one of our nearly 140 attorneys, each of our lawyers has access to the knowledge and experience of all of our attorneys throughout the State. This means that your relationship isn’t just with your attorney; it’s with our entire team.
Hanna Brophy started in 1943. That’s almost 75 years of experience (40 more years than many of the other workers’ compensation firms in the State). That experience makes us masters in the field and means that there’s little we haven’t seen, which allows us to provide expeditious and cost-effective solutions to our clients’ workers’ compensation claims.
Our 14 offices afford our clients local representation anywhere in California. Our attorneys are a constant presence at each of the WCAB venues and have gained the respect of the judges before whom we appear as well as the attorneys against whom we litigate.
