What we do

Talbert GR upholds the highest standards in its representation of clients and provides a straightforward, focused approach to accomplishing clients’ goals in the political environment.


If you aren’t thinking 10 steps ahead, then you are a mile behind. Jill’s grandfather, Col. Joseph A. Kelly, was a highly-decorated fighter pilot in World War II, the Korean Conflict, and the War in Vietnam. Everything he taught her was through the lens of a combat mission; no surprise there since he flew a total of 92 combat missions.

When she was learning to drive, the Col. and Jill’s father would constantly remind her to drive defensively and always anticipate the next move from other drivers. This life lesson has proven to be a crucial skill for Talbert GR’s continued success in over a decade of lobbying. If you are not anticipating the next move, then you are not in the driver’s seat.


“Know your product, establish yourself as an expert, and be an aggressive seller.”  This was the advice that Michael’s grandfather, Billy Stewart, gave to his brothers and the employees of the E.W. Stewart Lumber Company when they launched their first retail store in 1950.

This passed down mantra instilled in Michael the importance of being a trusted advisor to his clients and complements the strategic and proactive mission of Talbert Government Relations LLC.
