About Us

After working in the health public policy space on Capitol Hill and in two Presidential Administrations, as well as the private sector for both boutique and large government policy firms, The Outlaw Group was formed in 2002 with one goal in mind: provide affordable, custom-tailored advocacy strategies to help organizations meet their legislative and regulatory goals. We provide strategic advice, advance intelligence, grassroots mobilization and relationship-building to help our clients weather the seismic changes in Congress and White House Administrations, whether those goals involve pro-actively seeking policy changes to advance an organization’s internal goals, or stopping harmful proposals.

Sample services

  • Legislative Monitoring:  advance intelligence on emerging threats and opportunities;
  • Legislative Drafting
  • Direct Lobbying: knowing who to target and how to successfully connect with them;
  • Advocacy education for client boards and leadership, as well as grassroots outreach
  • Regulatory analysis: preparing public comments; effective interactions with federal agency staff; when to involve Congress

Sample activities

From the first time I listened to Deb on a conference call I knew this was a person who had a clear understanding of the key issues that surrounded our sub specialists. Deb’s connections and appropriate management of the healthcare maze has enabled us to achieve the recognition we needed with government and medical associations alike. There is no hesitation in recommending Deb as a professional who’s quick grasp of the important issues that are directed into intuitive action plans has been and is still, most appreciated.
