Fernández Cervantes Government Affairs was formed in 2004 by its principal and owner, Soyla Fernández. Prior to establishing her own firm, Soyla worked for Sacramento lobbying firm Manning Advocates, LLC. As an associate at Manning Advocates, she represented clients in a wider range of areas including water, energy, tribal compacts and various issues related to land use and development. Noting an opportunity to launch her own business, Soyla has since worked tirelessly to grow her business and client base. Since its inception, the first and perhaps still the only lobbying firm owned by a Latina in California, Fernández Cervantes Government Affairs has become a powerful ally to clients and legislators in Sacramento and beyond.
The Molera Alvarez Group was named by the Arizona Business Journal as “one of the state’s best government lobbying firms” and is based in Phoenix, Arizona. The principals of the firm are Jaime Molera and Ruben Alvarez. Jaime is the former Superintendent of Public Instruction for the state of Arizona. Ruben worked in the State of Arizona’s executive branch for twelve years, last serving as Senior Assistant to Governor Jane Dee Hull and Policy Advisor for Mexico and Hispanic Affairs. Clients benefit from their expertise and experience impacting policy decisions and resolving bureaucratic challenges.
