Often referred to as the Robin Hood of D.C., renowned political lobbyist Joseph Kuklis has spent the better part of his career thriving on the age-old motto of rob from the rich and give to the poor. Ensconced in the political hotbed that is Washington, Kuklis lives and breathes the daily pare that comes with knowing the difference between your allies and your adversaries and when one may turn into the other.
From his early days as a political staffer to striking out on his own as a fledgling lobbyist working from a bedroom office, Kuklis today runs the lobbying division of the venerable Duane Morris Government Strategies. He and his staff specialize in lobbying on behalf of small- to mid-sized businesses looking for funding and finances for a wide breadth of projects. His many lobbying successes range from obtaining funding for Fortune 500 companies to one-man start-ups. The only difference the amount of money needed to get the job done.
In his new book, aptly entitled The Robin Hood of D.C., Kuklis leads readers through some of the highlights of his career thus far while deciphering the often confusing lobbying process in a clear-cut step-by-step guide. Do-it-your-selfers will get a first-hand glimpse at how navigating the ins and outs of the Washington political process takes connections, finesse and more than a little bit of persistence and patience.
Complete with dozens of personal anecdotes and case studies, the Robin Hood of D.C. is a serious yet entertaining look at lobbying from the inside out.

Kuklis combined his passion for public service with his entrepreneurial spirit to create an innovative way to influence public policy. His understanding of the government and politics detailed in this book is instructive for big and small organizations alike. --Rick Santorum, Former U.S. Senator
The only thing more remarkable than Joe's entrepreneurial drive and tactical brilliance is his character. In seven years as his business partner and more than fifteen years as his friend, I have never met anyone more sincere. If you learn even a fraction from his book what I have learned from him in life, it will be one of the best books you've ever read. --Jon Dick, CEO, CivicScience
