Mid-Atlantic Strategic Solutions Co-Chair to Serve on Pa. Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts Board
July 20, 2020
HARRISBURG, Pa. – (July 20, 2020) McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC is pleased to announce David Feidt, Mid-Atlantic Strategic Solutions (MASS) Co-Chair, was appointed as a member of the Pennsylvania Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA) Board. David will begin his three-year term on September 1, 2020.
The IOLTA Board is a not-for-profit organization operating under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. The Board supports the provision of civil legal services to the Commonwealth’s poor and disadvantaged by providing grants, upon the Court’s approval, to non-profit organizations, law school clinical programs and administration of justice projects that deliver services free of charge to individuals and groups in need.
As Co-Chair of Mid-Atlantic Strategic Solutions (MASS), David Feidt’s primary area of practice is grassroots advocacy, where he has extensive experience directing issue campaigns at all levels of government. From rallying a community in support of a new development or zoning change to mobilizing people across the state in opposition to controversial federal legislation, he has the ability and experience to execute a successful effort no matter what level of government the client may be dealing with.
While many government relations professionals focus on state and federal lobbying, David has perfected the art of mobilizing community and political leaders to push for or against an issue or piece of legislation. He embraces the idea that while an elected official can easily go home to his district and forget about the lobbyists, it is much more difficult to ignore his donors, neighbors and leaders in the community if they continue to advocate the same message.
Mid-Atlantic Strategic Solutions is part of the McNees Strategic Solutions Group, a team of diverse lobbyists, government relations specialists, grassroots professionals and non-profit experts offering government affairs, grassroots advocacy and non-profit consulting services.
McNees is a full-service law firm based in central Pennsylvania with more than 130 attorneys representing corporations, associations, institutions and individuals. The firm serves clients worldwide from offices in Harrisburg, Lancaster, York, State College and Scranton, PA; Columbus, OH; Frederick, MD; and Washington, D.C. McNees is also a member of the ALFA International Global Legal Network.
