Our Mission

The Anfield family works diligently, every single day- to be the best lobbying firm in Florida. We have established a reputation of being ethical, hard working, and well respected- and always interact with our clients, public officials, peers and each other with honesty, candor, and integrity. 

The City of St. Augustine hired Anfield four years ago with the goal of increasing our presence in Tallahassee. The value of our new relationship was quickly evident when we were successful in obtaining funding for a critical water infrastructure project. Albert and Edgar have proven to have strong relationships with staff, committees, Representatives and Senators- and are focused on building long term relationships. Their team is attentive and responsive to the City’s needs, and we’re fortunate to have them on our side.
