Natalia D. Bronchuk
Natalia Bronchuk has practiced law in the area of workers’ compensation since 2014 and has been an associate attorney at Mullen & Filippi’s Los Angeles office since 2016. She represents employers, third-party administrators and insurance carriers with respect to workers’ compensation claims and related matters. Her practice has been primarily at the Marina del Rey, Los Angeles, and Long Beach WCAB district offices.
Natalia received her law degree from Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, California in 2012. Before graduating, she completed a judicial externship with the Honorable Terry J. Hatter Jr., Senior United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Central District of California. Previously, she had earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and English from Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, where she graduated magna cum laude and achieved the Dean’s Honor List.
Natalia is a member of the State Bar of California and the workers’ compensation section.
What I have come to appreciate most about practicing workers’ compensation is that it is a niche area of the law with a relatively small community, such that you quickly become familiar and develop relationships with members of the Applicant's Bar, other defense counsel, and Workers' Compensation Judges at the Appeals Boards at which you routinely appear. Your reputation means a great deal in this arena.
Before attending law school, I served as a high school English teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District for three years. I had been recruited from New England, where I was born and raised. Moving to Los Angeles and teaching in the inner city was a bit of a culture shock, but I think I grew more as a person during those three years than at any other time during my life.
