Brian Griesmeyer is a Partner at SaucedoChavez P.C. dedicated to solving the legal challenges his clients face. He now focuses primarily on personal injury, civil rights, employment law and commercial dispute cases, but also redistricting and the Voting Rights Act. Brian's practice mixes both plaintiff and defense work for all types of clients. Brian engages each legal matter with the desire to simplify complex legal issues and use both procedural and substantive arguments to benefit his clients.
Prior to joining SaucedoChavez P.C., Brian used his time as a student at the University of New Mexico School of Law to conduct research into getting children access to mental health services through Medicaid's provision for early and periodic screening, diagnostic and treatment services. Committed to his research, Brian presented his findings to the Legislative Health and Human Services Committee on behalf of the J. Paul Taylor Taskforce, which was convened to address the behavioral health needs of New Mexico's children.
Brian took the long road to becoming a lawyer. After graduating from Highland High School in 2000, he attended the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where he graduated in 2008 with his B.A. in cultural anthropology. He later went on to attend law school at the University of New Mexico, and graduated magna cum laude in 2016 receiving his J.D. He has practiced law in New Mexico State Court since September of 2016, the Unites States District Court for the State of New Mexico since 2017, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit since 2020.
When Brian isn't hard at work for the firm and his clients at SaucedoChavez P.C., he spends most of his time with his family. Music is a huge part of Brian's life and he enjoys singing and songwriting with his guitar. Brian knows the importance of physical and mental health and likes lifting heavy things off the floor in the gym.
