Gerard E. Evans, Ltd. is a full service lobbying & governmental relations firm in Annapolis, MD with over 35 years of personal and professional experience. We believe that truly effective advocacy is a combination of information and influence; to inform without a compelling understanding of the issue is fruitless, and, without access to avenues of influence, even an understanding of the issue is not enough. With this perspective, we faithfully and fiercely serve our clients – some seen here – in a vast array of projects and issues. From securing the location and funding of a new Washington Redskins stadium to being at the forefront of the gaming issue, we've fought and won for our clients year after year. Please explore our site to learn more about the team and some of the issues we’re working on, and if there’s an issue with state or local government we can help you with, contact us and we’ll help you out!



The SCMAGLEV is the fastest ground transportation system in the world, having been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records for its speed record of 375 mph set in 2015. Unlike conventional railway systems, the SCMAGLEV accelerates and decelerates not by force generated by a mechanical motor, but through a magnetic force generated between the onboard superconducting magnets and electromagnetic coils in a guideway.
