Mary Margaret (Peggy) Bush

The basis for Peggy’s motivation is her strong belief that the American judicial system works. She displays an understated elegance and graciousness behind her straightforward, simple and no-nonsense style. Her practice is relationship based, and she keeps her clients informed at every step. She is devoted to helping her clients and getting positive results. To that end, she is relentless, always digging deeper, whether it’s more research, more interaction, or more persistence.

Starting at an early age, Peggy wrote her first binding contract at age 4 to protect her favorite toy. Years later, she graduated from UC Berkeley with honors, received her JD from Hastings College of Law, and then returned to UC Berkeley for an MBA.

As a civil attorney, she has had extensive experience in business litigation, including corporate, real estate, and financial transactions. She has run multiple businesses, and has worked for a number of private businesses, nonprofits, alternative energy firms, as well as the Federal District Court.

Peggy has extensive experience as an arbitrator and mediator through service on a number of arbitration boards, including Kaiser Permanente, the Pacific Stock Exchange, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. She was on the Mediation Panel of the U.S. District Court for years. Peggy has demonstrated deep commitment to her community, serving as the executive director of the AIDS Alliance for over 10 years, a member of the Planning Council for the County of Alameda, and on a number of boards for community nonprofits.
