Erin A. Appel, Esq.
Senior Government Relations Associate
Capitol Strategies LLC
Erin A. Appel is committed to uplifting youth.
She is a senior government relations associate for Annapolis-based Capitol Strategies LLC, but she also is an Anne Arundel County court appointed special advocate. This role allows her to mentor a 17-year-old boy living in a residential treatment facility in Baltimore. She started to work with him nearly two years ago.
“It’s been really rewarding and really amazing to watch him develop into a young adult,” she said.
Appel, 36, is a graduate of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and earned her bachelor’s degree in political science from University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
At Capitol Strategies, she lobbies for big corporations but also for a group of small, independent local transportation companies, many of which are family-owned.
“I find it especially interesting and rewarding to help smaller mom-and-pop type businesses navigate the legislative process and develop a voice before the legislature and executive branch,” Appel said.
