Rascal Flatts has a line in a song that says, “When life throws you curves, you learn to swerve.” This line is the epitome of lobbying. With 174 members of the Mississippi Legislature having to cut through some 4,000 different pieces of legislation, The Echols Group can help you “swerve” through all of that and bring your issues to the forefront for consideration. So, what are you waiting on? When results matter, you need The Echols Group!
What does photography have to do with lobbying? Not really anything. Except of course when a legislator or client says they need to hire a professional photographer for a convention, printed material, websites, or legislative events. We want to offer clients and others an opportunity to hire us for any of their photography needs. Click the photos below to take you to our site and view more of our photography work.
