Paul D. Ellington

During his career Paul has helped his clients devise strategies that have enabled them to successfully achieve their goals and objectives at the Federal, State, County and Municipal levels of government throughout Maryland. He has been able to help his clients navigate existing - as well as potential - regulatory and legislative issues. He also has worked with Counties and Local Governments and Non-Profit Organizations to discover grants, bond opportunities and other funding sources within the Budget. Paul’s list of clients has included a variety of Counties, Municipalities, businesses, individuals and Non-Profits.

For over 3 decades Paul had been viewed as a trusted supporter and savvy advisor by a long list of elected officials in Maryland - both past and present - from "both sides of the aisle". This list includes Members of Congress, Governors (and their staffs), Cabinet Secretaries, State Legislators, Regulators, County Executives, County Council members (and Commissioners), and a variety of local Municipal Officials. Such long-standing relationships enable Paul to successfully leverage his extensive experience and contacts for the benefit of his clients thus making him a valued member of their "Government Relations team".
