According to the 2010 U.S. Census, San Diego County has a population of 3,095,313 people, making it the second most populous county in California. Including 70 miles of coastline and 9 regional economies, San Diego has one of the most diverse economic backgrounds in the country. This means that we see a wide array of claims from agricultural workers to public safety and everything in between.
From north to south, San Diego County extends from the southern borders of San Clemente (Orange County) and Temecula (Riverside County) to the U.S.-Mexico international border and Tijuana. From east to west, San Diego County stretches from the Pacific Ocean to Imperial County. Hanna Brophy’s San Diego office, located in Mission Valley just 1.5 miles from the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, is centrally located to provide expert employer/insurer defense for the entire region.
Brenna Hampton is the managing partner of our San Diego office and a California State Bar certified workers’ compensation legal specialist. In 2005, she was admitted to the California State Bar after obtaining her Juris Doctor from California Western School of Law in San Diego, where she earned special designation as a distinguished advocate on the client counseling and negotiation teams and where she served double-tenure as president of the law school’s Women’s Law Caucus.
In 1986, Elizabeth began her legal career with Hanna Brophy as a law clerk during her second year of law school at University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. On December 4, 2010, she was elected as Hanna Brophy’s fourteenth senior partner.
Elizabeth has an accomplished trial practice, obtaining countless “take nothing” decisions before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, many of which were injury AOE/COE psychiatric cases invoking the good faith personnel action defense. Her clients are primarily self-insured governmental agencies and school districts.
