John J. Federico has worked in the lobbying field in Kansas since 1994.  Upon graduating from the Washburn University School of Law, Federico went to work for Pete McGill & Associates.  At that time McGill, the former Speaker of the Kansas House of Representatives, had built one of the largest and most successful contract lobbying firms in the Midwest.  In 1997, Federico left McGill and started Federico Consulting, Inc.: A Public Affairs Group.  Since its inception two decades ago, Federico has built what is now considered to be one of the premier lobbying firms in the state.  

Federico Consulting is a government affairs firm that offers a variety of professional services including: governmental lobbying on the local, state and federal level; legislative monitoring; public relations; issue management, regulatory counsel, and professional association management. 


Federico Consulting  attributes its' success to several equally important factors including: a talented, well-educated, creative staff; a strong commitment to developing personal, meaningful relationships with legislators on “both sides of the aisle”; respect from, and a good working relationship with, fellow lobbyists; and an outstanding reputation built on honesty, professionalism, and tenacity. The firm is committed to delivering “value” to the clients it represents by providing the necessary time, talent and attention required to accomplish the goals set forth by the client, in the most professional and effective manner possible.
