Jordan Bernstein

Chief Operating Officer

As the Chief Operating Officer of Cassidy and Associates, Jordan manages the day-to-day operations of the firm while also representing his clients who are as diverse as global brand names to national non-profits, large integrated health systems, universities and trade associations. He specializes in devising and executing comprehensive legislative strategies directed at promoting clients’ specific federal policy and funding objectives in Washington.

Jordan’s exceptional ability to create and grow relationships between the federal government and public and private entities is grounded in his tenure as Chief of Staff to Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson.   In this role, Jordan not only had unique inside-access to the legislative process, but also was an essential participant in the determination of congressional policy and appropriations.  His policy work encompassed healthcare, transportation, homeland security, education, telecommunications, corporate governance, defense, and other front-burner topics.

Jordan provides trusted advice and counsel to many of his clients as their general representative in Washington relying on his keen awareness that client issues don’t fall neatly into a single category and that the best solutions come from having a deep understanding of the entire legislative and political process.

He earned a bachelors degree in Political Science from Michigan State University and an M.A. in Political Management from George Washington University.
