Warren Buliox was working as a special prosecutor for the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office and won several trials in a row.
In a moment of self-congratulation, Buliox commented to a colleague that he “couldn’t be stopped.”
His colleague responded, “You don’t necessarily win cases. Your facts win cases.”
That conversation changed Buliox’s approach.
Now in private practice, Buliox concentrates on labor and employment law litigation. All told, over his seven-year legal career, Buliox successfully has handled about a dozen jury trials and several bench trials, winning many more after that conversation.
He’s participated in more than 250 administrative hearings. And he has prevailed on every summary judgment brief he’s written.
As an undergraduate at Alabama State, Buliox was involved in student government and participated in a few protests. The experience led him to pursue a legal career.
“I fell in love with the idea of representing ideas and people,” Buliox said.
But before law school, Buliox spent a year teaching at Bradley Tech, a Milwaukee public high school.
“I’m from the inner city, and I grew up in a rough environment for the first half of my life,” he said. “But because of the support and determination of my mom, I was able to go to college. So I decided I needed to give back.”
