Julia Vargas is recognized by the State Bar of California as a Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist. She has been with the Riverside office of Hanna Brophy since 2009, defending workers’ compensation claims on behalf of self-insured private employers, insurance companies of all sizes, and public entities.
Julia earned her J.D. from The University of Texas at Austin School of Law in 2008. During her time there she was a member of the Women’s Law Caucus and the Chicano/Hispanic Law Students Association, and participated in the immigration clinic where she represented low income immigrants before the US immigration court. Prior to that, she attended the University of Texas at Brownsville, where she studied history and government, graduating in 2004, magna cum laude with a B.A. degree in history.
Julia lives with her husband and three young children in southern Riverside County, so she is centrally located to handle cases at the Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Pomona, and Orange County Workers’ Compensation Appeals Boards.
