Built on Nebraska Values

Bruce Cutshall founded this highly respected Nebraska lobbying firm with the simple conviction that hard work, good relationships, and integrity mattered most. A lifelong Nebraskan, Bruce knew these core values were shared by clients and policymakers alike.  

Almost 40 years later, Nebraska lobbying firm Nowka & Edwards continues to flourish by following Bruce’s original ideas. We work hard to provide our clients with creative problem-solving approaches, not the “cookie cutter” solutions offered by most others. Our philosophy of teamwork and close client contact allows us to quickly adapt to the ever-changing legislative environment as we work your issues. We insist on our clients being the center of attention, rather than us. It’s your business that matters—and we’re here to get results for you.

Our three current lobbyists—Trent Nowka, Jon Edwards, Russell Westerhold—are all lifelong Nebraskans born and educated in this state, but with different backgrounds and areas of policy expertise.
