Tradition, endurance and success have made our services the well-defined and long-established standard in the profession. We have a rich history and established methods that contribute to our distinct representation of clients. The essence of our mission has remained constant over the decades. The best interest of the client through ethical representation is the primary interest to be considered. In order for the client to have the benefit of developing knowledge and intelligence, a union of forces is necessary. Political representation is a cooperative venture; the lobbyist, the lawyer, the specialist, technicians and public relations must unite for the benefit of the client.
Our objectives and organizational values effect all that we do—our interaction with clients, elected officials and administrators, our decision-making, our planning and goal-setting. Decisions must be based upon client’s needs and values, coupled with our knowledge and experience. We must work together to achieve results, while respecting those we work with and serve.
