California’s Original

Workers’ Compensation

Defense Firm

For 77 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.



Tobias Nicholson graduated from California State University, San Bernardino in 2005 with a Bachelor’s degree in English. He then attended the University of La Verne College of Law and graduated magna cum laude in 2011.

Prior to joining Hanna Brophy, Tobias practiced in the areas of family law, criminal law, bankruptcy, and, most recently, workers’ compensation law as an applicant’s attorney in Fresno. As an applicant’s attorney, he gained valuable trial experience and insights into case strategy that he uses to benefit our clients on the defense side.

When he is not working, Tobias enjoys spending time at home with his wife, Anna, and their beautiful baby, Tabitha.

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.
