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.
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.
