At Rooney Novak Isenhour, their earned trust and firsthand experience helps them connect clients to those across state government.
Rooney Novak Isenhour builds on a friendship that began when T.J. Rooney (above, right) and Alan Novak locked political horns as respected chairs of the Democratic and Republican State Committees. At the time, they fought daily campaign skirmishes and major battles, but eventually found that while their political views were poles apart, neither considered stalemates in inner-party politics and legislative negotiations good policy or government.
Now, they combine their intimate knowledge of government with extensive experience through decades of national, statewide and local campaigns to present the issues in a friendly and interactive way.
