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.



Joseph Menapace joined Hanna Brophy in 2012. He defends insurance carriers and self-insured employers in all areas of workers’ compensation.  Joseph graduated from the University of California, Davis with a B.S. degree in biotechnology with a minor in political science.  While at UC Davis, he interned for the American Bar Association’s Commission on Mental and Physical Disability Law (now Commission on Disability Rights) in Washington D.C.

In 2011, he was admitted to the California State Bar after obtaining a Juris Doctor from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, where he served as a senior articles editor for the UC Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal.  Joseph also had the pleasure of serving as a judicial extern to the Honorable Richard A. Kramer of the Superior Court of California, County of San Francisco where he gained invaluable experience and insight into the judicial process.

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.
