Scott Pullins's Experience:
Attorney & Counselor at Law at Pullins Law Firm LLCSeptember 2014 - Present | Mount Vernon, Ohio
Founding Director at Pullins Group LLC1992 - Present | Mount Vernon, Ohio
The Pullins Group LLC provides business services, public affairs consulting, and runs grassroots marketing campaigns. But what does that really mean? Simply put, we work for companies, groups, and candidates that are affected by the decisions of government. In some cases, we analyze what the government has done and help those companies or groups make decisions and/or comply with complex government rules and regulations. But in other cases those companies and groups may want to do more than just sit on their hands while government destroys their livelihoods. In those cases, we run tough, hard-hitting grassroots campaigns to overturn the government decisions, defeat the elected officials that made the decisions, put grassroots pressure on these officials, or elect new people to these offices. In addition, we help small businesses and groups promote themselves through the use of social media sites, websites, blogs and other innovative marketing techniques. We also help companies and associations manage their state and federal campaign finance, lobbying, and other governmental reporting. We do this on a low cost, often flat fee basis.
