Neil Gorsuch Net Worth 2020: How Much Is Gorsuch Worth Now?

President Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court back on February 1, 2017. Since then, Gorsuch has been the subject of much debate and skepticism. But we’re not here to argue about the man’s politics, we just want to know how much dough he has stashed away.

But how did Gorsuch make his money? Let’s take a look.

Rather than join an established law firm after his clerkships, Gorsuch joined the two-year old boutique firm Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel. He was an associate in the Washington D.C. law firm from 1995-1997 and a partner from 1998-2005, making his name as an impressive trial lawyer. His client list included Colorado billionaire Philip Anschutz.
As noted by the Denver Post: “Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch gave up a $1 million a year paycheck when he left his private law practice a decade ago for less financially rwarding work as a government lawyer and then a judge.”
But don’t think too much of a Gorsuch’s monetary sacrifice. The man has done plenty well for himself in government.

Ownership of individual stocks by judges can often lead to ethical dilemmas, which is why Fix the Court has fought for greater transparency and accountability at SCOTUS. When it comes to Gorsuch, they don’t have much to worry about. The judge does not own any individual stocks directly, rather his investments are comprised of a diverse mix of profitable stock funds, bond funds, municipal bonds, CDs and money-market accounts.
According to Open Secrets, these investments have generated anywhere between $140,000 and $390,000 in passive income for Gorsuch. His salary as a Tenth Circuit judge was $217,600 and his salary as an associate justice will be $251,800.

But he managed to do quite nicely for his first four years on the federal bench even so, earning $3.28 million in deferred payments through 2009. That was on top of the judge’s annual salary, around $200,000 at the time.
The payments resulted from an agreement Gorsuch signed when he joined the Bush administration in 2005.
He worked on several potentially lucrative cases that had yet to produce big paydays for the firm. When they did, Gorsuch collected his share according to what he told senators in 2006 were “predetermined rules.”

When all is said and done, a report from Open Secrets based upon Gorsuch’s 2015 filing estimated his net worth to be pretty substantial:

[L]ike Scalia, only more so, Gorsuch is quite wealthy. According to his 2015 financial disclosure statement — the most recent available — Gorsuch had an estimated net worth of somewhere between $3.2 million and $7.3 million, not counting a few things like the Denver-area home he occupies. (Judges and others — like members of Congress — who file financial disclosure forms aren’t required to include “any mortgage, equity loan, or line of credit secured by a personal residence, vehicle, boat, or motor home.” And those can be quite some valuable assets to leave out.)
