Uhlfelder & Associates offers a broad array of services ranging from traditional legislative and administrative lobbying to consulting on the design and implementation of public policy strategies.

Six governors —Reubin Askew, Bob Graham, Lawton Chiles, Jeb Bush, Charlie Crist and Rick Scott — have tapped Steve Uhlfelder for a wide range of duties.

Florida Trend magazine named firm founder Steven Uhlfelder one of Florida’s most influential people. A newspaper editorial once said about Uhlfelder, "Clearly, over his career he has done 'right things' beyond counting."

With more than 55 years of collective experience, Steve Uhlfelder and Toni Large offer clients extraordinary knowledge of the people, the policies and the processes of Florida government.
