Advocating for clients with expert strategy and strong relationships

Old Line Government Affairs is one of the few lobbying firms in Maryland to have representation across the aisle regardless of the current political landscape. Our team’s diverse backgrounds offer a level of service and experience that is unrivaled in our industry.

Our firm’s name is a tribute to Maryland’s state nickname – “The Old Line State” – a moniker earned by the courage, discipline and heroic sacrifices of Maryland’s soldiers who held steadfast to the line in battle during the American Revolution.
