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.
Cortney started her worker’s compensation career in 2000 as a paralegal, where she spent eight years working for several prominent applicant firms in San Diego before heading to law school. After completing her law degree, Cortney refocused on the defense side and worked for several statewide defense firms before coming to Hanna Brophy. Currently, Cortney defends all aspects of workers’ compensation, 132a, and serious & willful claims, and she continues to rely on her expertise and established relationships within the community to benefit our clients.
During law school, Cortney was awarded a merit scholarship. She studied international law abroad in Hangzhou, China, earned a certificate in Social Justice, received several CALI awards for having the highest grades in those courses, and graduated in the top third of her class.
Outside of work, Cortney keeps busy with her husband, young daughter, two Boston terriers, and cat. She enjoys riding bikes with her family at the beach, is a self-proclaimed foodie, and loves to travel.
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 more than 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 15 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.
