our approach

The District Policy Group is one of the hardest working groups in Washington, D.C. We don't merely advise clients about what they should do, we engage in the "doing." We roll up our sleeves, dig into the issues, and get things done. We are truly motivated by the importance of the issues our clients address, the work they do, and the public policy goals they want to achieve. Our approach centers around partnering with our clients to design and implement a creative, tailored, and multi-pronged government relations strategy, develop the materials and the messages to make the case in an effective manner, and engage in ongoing, targeted outreach to policymakers to achieve success.
