David Stricklin

Mr. Stricklin is the founder of Stricklin & Associates, a bipartisan public affairs consulting firm representing client interests in Springfield, Chicago and Washington, D.C.  

Mr. Stricklin began lobbying in Illinois at a large Chicago law firm in 2003 and established Stricklin & Associates in 2005. Clients ranging from internationally recognized institutions to the fastest growing industries in Illinois have enlisted him to help them pass essential changes in legislation, defend against hostile policy proposals, and to secure specific provisions within the state budget. Stricklin & Associates rejects the “paint by numbers” approach of client service and instead invests significant time, effort and resources to serve each client based on their unique circumstances.  

Mr. Stricklin began his career as a television news reporter in Illinois, then went on to serve as chief of staff to three members of the U.S. House of Representatives on Capitol Hill. He served in senior roles in campaigns for governor of Illinois in 1998 and 2002.

He and his wife Jennifer live in the northern suburbs of Chicago and have two teenage sons.
