Gordon & Rees Continues Expansion of Employment Law Group in San Diego with Addition of Partner Joseph Huprich

Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani, the nation's first and only law firm with offices in all 50 states, welcomes Joseph Huprich as a partner in the firm's Employment Law practice group in the San Diego office. So far this year, Huprich is the 26th attorney to join the practice on the West Coast.

In a legal career that spans over 25 years, Huprich has helped both individuals and businesses overcome their legal challenges. His practice focuses on employment law, labor, commercial litigation, construction, trials, and arbitration. After training at several prominent litigation firms early in his career, Huprich started his own practice in 2008.

"We are excited to have Joe join our team and bring his vast experience and expertise in various practice areas," said Brandon Saxon, Assistant Managing Partner of the firm's San Diego office and Assistant Chair of the firm's National Employment Practice Group. "We look forward to his contributions to the firm."

Huprich has regularly received favorable results, including obtaining a dismissal of a $20 million lawsuit against his small business owner client; earning a favorable settlement of a $1 million claim for racial discrimination and harassment involving a major retailer; winning a $1.5 million award for a construction client after a two-week jury trial; and negotiating a favorable settlement of $1.5 million Department of Labor wage claim for a home health care provider.

He was recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2005, 2006, and 2007 and a Pasadena Magazine Top Attorney from 2012 to 2017. Huprich is a member of the State Bar of California and the Los Angeles County Bar Association.

He is admitted to practice in California, the U.S. District Courts for the Central, Southern, Eastern, and Northern Districts of California, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. A proud Trojan, he earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California and later his law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law.

The Employment Law Group provides employment counseling and litigation services to world-renowned universities, medical centers, and nearly every type of business, from Fortune 500 corporations to startups and nonprofits. Our attorneys complement litigation expertise with preventive training, offering guidance in programs and techniques designed to avoid the consequence and cost of further involvement with conflict and dispute management.
