Mark Grueskin

Mark Grueskin’s career as an election law attorney almost never got off the ground. When he practiced law at a politically connected Washington, D.C. firm, a senior partner told Grueskin that he was being incredibly naive about wanting to practice election law. Instead, he was told to shelve the idea and replace it with something more practical. Three years later, he moved back to Colorado to see who was right. Since then, Grueskin has managed campaigns, served as Legal Counsel to the Governor of Colorado, and developed a law practice that focuses on campaign finance, initiatives and referenda, redistricting, voting rights, and the conduct of federal, state, and municipal elections. He was Local Counsel to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver and Colorado Counsel to several presidential campaigns (2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020). Additionally, he has served as Special Counsel to the State of Colorado and the Colorado General Assembly on constitutional matters. Campaigns & Elections Magazine wrote that he was “Colorado’s best elections attorney, bar none.” The Denver Business Journal named him the state’s top practitioner of political law, and Law Week Colorado gave him its “Lawyer of the Year” award three times.
