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.
Amy G. Rivera joined Hanna Brophy in 2016. She brings her unique background as a registered nurse and more than 20 years of workers’ compensation defense experience. Ms. Rivera is a certified specialist, and she represents self-insured employers and insurance carriers in all aspects of workers’ compensation litigation.
Ms. Rivera earned her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. in 1980 and was immediately commissioned into the United States Air Force. She attained the rank of Captain while serving in Ohio and Wyoming. While continuing to work full-time as a nurse, Ms. Rivera earned her Juris Doctor from Whittier College School of Law. She was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1993 and to the United States Supreme Court Bar in 1999.
She enjoys training new associates and also provides educational seminars in both litigation and medical aspects of workers’ compensation to colleagues and clients.
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.
