Mark P. Meuser
Candidate, U.S. Senate California
Mark Meuser is a native Californian with a proven record of fighting for your constitutional rights.
From a young age, Mark was an entrepreneur. At age 12, he picked cherries in the morning and then operated a street-side cherry stand in the afternoon. He also worked hard at caring for orphaned animals, often bottle-feeding sheep, pigs, and cows.
By age 15, he was in a management position at a local restaurant. By age 21, he purchased his own pizza restaurant. While his restaurant business was thriving, Meuser started studying law. A few years later, he graduated with honors from Oak Brook College of Law. Meuser’s unique training has taught him how to listen to people, formulate creative alternatives, and achieve workable solutions to real problems.
As an attorney, Meuser secured an important victory for disabled Americans against United Airlines. In Gilstrap v. United Airlines, Meuser represented a disabled American injured by United when it failed to follow applicable federal law in how it handled her travel. The 9th Circuit agreed with Meuser that federal law permitted disabled Americans to sue airlines if those airlines failed to care for passengers as the law provided.
In 2017, Meuser joined the Dhillon Law Group where he has focused on Election, Political, and Constitutional Law. At Dhillon Law Group, he has had the privilege of protecting critical First Amendment rights, for example, by defending Troy Worden from a frivolous lawsuit brought against him by Yvette Felarca, a national organizer for the organization By Any Means Necessary, one of antifa’s front groups. Meuser was also involved in a lawsuit against Governor Gavin Newsom when California tried to remove President Trump’s name from the primary ballot by unconstitutionally changing the qualifications to run for President. Over the last year, Meuser has been involved in 22 lawsuits brought against Newsom for his unconstitutional usurpation of power as a result of COVID-19.
In his free time, Meuser loves being outdoors, enjoying California’s natural beauty. Whether he is hiking, bike riding, sailing, scuba diving, or snow skiing, Meuser is always quick to enjoy the diversity this state has to offer. Meuser’s favorite bike ride was a five-day trip riding down the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to Orange County.
When Mark was young, he saw a Saturday afternoon sports special covering an Ironman. Impressed by the athletes who competed in it, in 2014 Meuser registered to compete in his first Ironman and was fully prepared to do the 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and marathon run. However, the event was canceled at the last minute due to the local forest fires. As Mark rode his bike back to his car, he was in a devastating bicycle accident. Not to be deterred from his vision of completing an Ironman, Meuser registered for the same event a year later, only to run into unplanned difficulties. The third time is the charm, as three months later, he tried again, finishing the Ironman Cozumel in 12 hours and 45 minutes. In 2021, Meuser finished his second full Ironman at Ironman Coeur d’Alene. In 2020, Meuser was ranked by Ironman as the third best male in his age group (45-49) in the United States for the half-Ironman distance (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run).
Meuser is a prolific reader, on average reading one book a week. Most of the books he has read are on the topics of American history and biography. Meuser also has a large collection of American political biographies, United States and California State Histories that were published over 100 years ago. Meuser’s rare book collection includes a First Edition set of the Madison Papers (the personal notes of James Madison taken by Madison during the Constitutional Convention). Of all his rare books, one of his favorites is an 1859 book titled California Life Illustrated. This book tells the story of several individuals who moved to California during the California Gold Rush.
