PRG provides its clients with an insider’s view of how to get business done in Washington, offering advocacy, strategic communications and legal representation services to help navigate the complex federal landscape.

He helps clients formulate their arguments in persuasive ways and ensures that their views are heard and understood by target audiences, including Members of Congress, policymakers, the news media and the public.
Paul is also a member of the American Jobs for America’s Heroes (AJAH) Campaign Advisory Council. During his tenure, he has been a trusted advisor to the campaign, offering guidance on an array of issues including effective messaging and campaign strategy. By virtue of his ongoing support, he has become the campaign’s de facto “go to guy” for information and advice.
Paul has advised the campaign on its outreach efforts, particularly as they related to trade associations, and he was instrumental in facilitating AJAH’s introduction to NTMA and PMA, two trade associations that have become active campaign participants. His firm, PRG, has provided social media support to the campaign. When called upon for help, Paul’s response has been immediate and his support constant.
Whatever the issue, he has offered valuable insights and thoughtful advice. Through his efforts on behalf of AJAH, Paul has consistently delivered on the campaign’s promise to help National Guard members, veterans and Reservists secure employment in the civilian marketplace.
Prior to joining Bracewell & Giuliani, Paul was Managing Director and Senior Vice President at The PBN Company, an international public relations firm. He began his career in the non-profit sector, where he served for seven years as a vice president at The Center for Democracy, directing democracy-building programs around the world including election monitoring, technical assistance to legislatures and international conference management.
Paul is also co-President of Camp for All Kids, a non-profit organization that provides disadvantaged children with scholarships to attend private overnight camps during the summer. More than 1000 kids have received scholarships over the past 20 years.
