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.



Ish Bhanu is a Partner at Hanna Brophy’s Riverside office. He received his undergraduate degree from UCLA in economics with a minor in political science. Ish went on to complete his legal education at the University of San Diego School of Law. He was awarded his Juris Doctor degree in May of 2014.

Ish joined Hanna Brophy in 2014. He represents employers and insurance carriers in all stages of workers’ compensation matters.  Ish also represents municipalities in CalPERS industrial disability retirement (“IDR”) cases, including cases involving safety officers.

When Ish is not working, he enjoys playing tennis, going to the driving range, and traveling to exotic locations.


During law school, Ish worked for a large international law firm in addition to local San Diego law firms doing employment, corporate, and white collar defense work.  Through these experiences, he gained valuable courtroom experience and participated in all major aspects of a trial.

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.
