About Gretchen Jacobs


Lobbyist. Lawyer. Oxford-educated scholar. Arizonan. Mother. Gretchen Jacobs is all those things, and then some. With a degree in political science from USC and a law degree from Santa Clara, Gretchen spent the first part of her career in civil courtrooms, then shifted from the courtroom to the political arena in 1998.


Since then, for the last nearly twenty-two years, Gretchen has earned a reputation at the State Capitol as one of the hardest working and “most effective” lobbyists in Arizona (as noted in numerous publications including the Arizona Republic and The Arizona Capitol Times). She has excellent relationships with legislative leadership and state agency representatives and knows, from first-hand experience, how to successfully navigate clients through state government terrain.


As an attorney, Gretchen maintains her licenses to practice law in Arizona and California. Gretchen oversees all governmental relation activities conducted on behalf of AGA’s clients.
