David Bailey Associates is a full-service public relations, government affairs, and lobbying firm located immediately adjacent to the state capitol in Richmond.
For 25 years, we have developed and maintained effective working relationships with legislators and executive branch elected and appointed officials on all sides of the political spectrum. We take special pride in our reputation for honest-dealing with our clients, state officials and fellow lobbyists. Moreover, we value our recognition as highly ethical practitioners of the lobbyist profession in Virginia; in this regard, we are the co-founders of the Virginia Association of Professional Lobbyists, a non-profit association which has been formally commended several times by the Virginia General Assembly for developing both a Code of Conduct and Standards of Professional Practice for lobbyists working in Virginia. In addition, we publish a quarterly political affairs and public policy magazine, Virginia Capitol Connections, which features articles on important public policy and political issues written by leading legislators, executive branch officials, political scientists, lobbyists, and other noteworthy persons.
Our Richmond office is located at 1108 E Main St #1200, Richmond, VA 23219, just a short walk from the State Capitol, the General Assembly Building, the Governors office, and the offices of Cabinet officials and many state agency heads. As a result our firm has daily interaction with a variety of state government officials.
Throughout our history we have placed relationships with our clients ahead of maximizing opportunities for billing. Because David Bailey Associates is not an organization where billable hours take precedent over other considerations, it does not have the billing pressures or high costs that many lobbying firms face. Our commitment to you is to identify the highest and best use of our services to ensure successful implementation of the citys legislative goals and objectives. In the end, all we have is our reputation for competence, fairness, honesty, and success.
Our lobbyists/government affairs staff members are highly-competent individuals who have both broad-based and lengthy records of highly-successful and wide-ranging experience in all aspects and levels of government—federal, state, and local—as well as with private corporate and public nonprofit organizations.
