What is George Conway's Net Worth?

George Conway is an American attorney who has a net worth of $20 million. When George and ex-wife Kellyanne Conway were married, their combined net worth topped $44 million according to their various financial disclosures. They were married from 2021 to 2023.

Despite his wife's position, he emerged as a vocal critic of Trump in 2018, and during the 2020 presidential election was involved in efforts with his PAC the Lincoln Project to prevent Trump's reelection. Among his other notable endeavors, Conway successfully argued the 2010 securities case of Morrison v. National Australia Bank before the US Supreme Court.

Financial Details

A financial disclosure released in April 2017 showed that Kellyanne personally earned approximately $900,000 in 2016. The same disclosure estimated that she and George controlled assets valued at between $11 and $44 million.

Real Estate

Kellyanne and George lived in a Trump Tower condo in New York City from 2001 to 2008. During their time in NYC, Kellyanne served on the Trump Tower condo co-op board. In February 2017 they paid just under $8 million for a mansion in Washington D.C.. Back in New Jersey, they still own a $6 million home in the town of Alpine, which is frequently ranked as one of the most expensive zip codes in America.

Early Life and Education

George Conway III was born on September 2, 1963 in Boston, Massachusetts to a Filipino mother who worked as an organic chemist and an American father who worked for the defense contractor Raytheon. As a teenager, he attended Marlborough High School. Conway went on to attend Harvard College, from which he graduated magna cum laude with his Bachelor of Arts degree in biochemistry in 1984. He subsequently went to Yale Law School, and earned his Juris Doctor degree in 1987. At Yale, Conway edited the Yale Law Journal and was president of the school's chapter of the Federalist Society.

After graduating from Yale Law, Conway worked as a law clerk to Judge Ralph Winter Jr. of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Following that job, he joined the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz in New York City. In early 1994, Conway was made a partner of the firm in the litigation department. His practice focused on litigation pertaining to securities, contracts, antitrust, and mergers and acquisitions. Meanwhile, Conway agreed to work pro bono as an attorney representing Paula Jones in her sexual harassment lawsuit against President Bill Clinton.

In March of 2010, Conway successfully argued the securities case of Morrison v. National Australia Bank before the US Supreme Court. The case concerned the 1998 purchase by National Australia Bank of a Florida-based mortgage servicing company called HomeSide Lending, and its relation to the extraterritorial effect of US securities legislation. Conway won the case with an 8-0 vote and an opinion written by Justice Antonin Scalia.

Anti-Trump Activism

In early 2017, Conway was considered by the Trump administration for the position of solicitor general in the United States Department of Justice; the job ultimately went to Noel Francisco. A couple of months later, it was reported that Conway would be nominated for the position of assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice's Civil Division. However, he withdrew himself from consideration, later explaining his reasoning by saying that the Trump administration was "like a shit show in a dumpster fire."

Conway would go on to be a vocal critic of Trump, despite his wife working as Trump's senior counselor. In late 2018, he and Neal Katyal penned an op-ed in the New York Times questioning the constitutionality of Trump's appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Around the same time, Conway organized a group called Checks and Balances, a coalition of conservative and libertarian attorneys who had been instrumental in picking candidates for the Trump administration to appoint to federal courts. The aim of the group was to encourage fellow conservatives to speak out against the wrongdoings of the Trump administration.

In late 2019, Conway and other conservatives and former Republican Party members founded the Lincoln Project, a PAC created to prevent the reelection of Trump in 2020. The group also sought to defeat incumbent Republican candidates running for reelection who had been loyal to Trump. In the spring of 2020, the Lincoln Project endorsed Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president. That summer, Conway announced that he would be taking a leave from the group to focus on his family; the same day, his wife announced her departure from the White House. In 2021, Conway stated that the Lincoln Project should be shut down due to revelations that one of its founders was harassing young men, and that the abuse had been ignored by leadership. However, the group continued, and in 2023 and 2024 went back to focusing on efforts to defeat Trump. In the latter year, Conway donated the maximum legal amount of $929,600 to the Biden Victory Fund to ensure Biden's reelection and the survival of US democracy.

Personal Life

In the late 1990s, Conway dated conservative media personality Laura Ingraham. He subsequently dated political consultant Kellyanne Fitzpatrick, whom he married in 2001. They had four children together and lived in Alpine, New Jersey. In 2017, the family moved to Washington, D.C. when Kellyanne became the senior counselor to the newly elected Trump. The Conways announced that they were divorcing in 2023.
