What We Do

Shaw Yoder Antwih Schmelzer & Lange (SYASL) offers a wide range of advocacy expertise for our public and private clients from strategic consultation to policy analysis to expert testimony. Our reputation of integrity and professionalism allows us to forge and maintain strong relationships with lawmakers and influencers. And our intimate understanding of policymaking enables us to always know what to do next. So, when challenges arise, we lead our clients to the legislative, regulatory or budgetary outcome they seek – and deliver results they can feel good about.

Those results include the enactment, defeat, or amendment of legislation, the inclusion of line items in the state budget, and the shaping of regulations that improve the implementation of legislation. More than two decades of high visibility in Sacramento and diverse professional backgrounds make the SYASL lobbying team uniquely positioned to deliver the right information to the right people at the right times. Our firm’s local government foundation has proven valuable, as we develop relationships with local elected officials, who often move on to the statehouse.
