Joseph Bui is an appellate attorney adept at analyzing nuanced legal issues confronting courts in California and across the country.

Joseph joined GMSR after clerking for three federal judges:   Judge Amos L. Mazzant in the Eastern District of Texas, Chief Judge M. Casey Rodgers in the Northern District of Florida, and Magistrate Judge David L. Horan in the Northern District of Texas.  As a judicial law clerk, Joseph worked on complex civil actions that implicated contract law, class certification, discovery issues, employment law, ERISA, subject matter jurisdiction, personal jurisdiction, social security appeals, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.  He was also an associate at a major commercial law firm’s San Francisco office, where he advised health insurers and providers on newly enacted statutes such as the Affordable Care Act often based only on the text, the legislative history, and first principles.
