Advocacy Solutions, LLC

Rhode Island

Advocacy Solutions is an award-winning firm dedicated to protecting and advancing our clients' interests. We are not a law firm that occasionally does lobbying, or a public relations firm that dabbles in politics. We are a full-time, full-service firm committed to integrated public affairs.

Our diverse team members have prior experience as campaign operatives, lawyers, crisis managers, elected and state officials, executive and legislative staffers, field operators, and public relations executives. As a result, we combine what works — across sectors — to deliver results. Want to be heard? We can help.


Lobbying isn’t what it used to be. That’s a good thing. It’s about more than access. At Advocacy Solutions, we combine deep public policy expertise with smart, sophisticated strategies aimed at reaching the right policymakers at the municipal, state, and federal levels. We take the time to understand the issue at hand, combine years of experience navigating the halls of government with real-time analysis of the political, social, and economic dynamics of the day, and execute strategies that are successful for both short- and long-term success. Advocacy Solutions' government affairs specialties include policy tracking and analysis, direct lobbying, government relations counsel, and advocacy and organizing.
