  • Developing a client's legislative program, including collaborative writing of proposed legislation or regulations;
  • Organizing and managing grass-roots lobbying efforts;
  • Planning strategies and political consulting;

In addition to the depth and breadth of their combined professional experience, AdvoCal's principals and associates have access to the leadership of both political parties. They also maintain a cordial and productive working relationship with legislators, staff, consultants, members of the Governor's Office and state agency and department personnel.
