Joseph is a business litigation associate in the Firm's Los Angeles office.

Prior to joining Thompson Coburn, Joseph worked for a mid-sized commercial litigation and professional liability law firm. In that capacity, he handled all stages of civil prosecution and defense, from pre-filing demands through post-trial matters and collection efforts. He has experience drafting and arguing a full spectrum of motions and enjoys working closely with his clients to reach their desired resolution, whether through trial or settlement.

Before entering private practice, Joseph served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Stuart M. Rice of the Los Angeles Superior Court and drafted tentative rulings for the department's regular motion calendar. He also served in the court's Coverage Department, where he worked closely with over thirty judges across the Independent Calendar courts. In 2020, Joseph was selected to join the court's inaugural COVID Taskforce to conduct research and issue guidance to courts on novel COVID-related matters.

Joseph earned his LL.B., magna cum laude, jointly from the Université de Toulouse, France and the University of Nottingham, UK. He earned his J.D. from the University of New Hampshire School of Law, where he was a senior articles editor for The Journal of the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property.
