We partner with, listen to, and are inspired by our clients.

We work with passion and commitment to serve our clients and improve California’s schools. Our success stems, in part, from the partnership we foster with our clients. We listen. Ask thoughtful questions. And make sure our clients understand what’s happening every step of the way, whether it’s providing accurate updates on state policymaking or navigating the legislative process.

As a client, I appreciate that Ball/Frost takes the time to understand not only my goals, but also the context around them, and around me. They are skilled at maneuvering the political landscape, knowing when something is worth a time and energy investment, and when it is not — even if the outcome is getting a bill shelved; the beauty is, that they foresee that outcome and know it is a step in the right direction.
