Metz, Husband and Daughton is a strong firm with an impressive client list that, in my opinion, is unmatched in Florida. Doug Bell and Pierce Schuessler have supported our company for many years and our experiences with them continue to be outstanding. Doug and Pierce have an excellent grasp of upcoming issues, our position on them, and the implications of legislative change on our business. They do an outstanding job of ensuring that our messages are heard and that we're in the loop on important developments so that our concerns can be addressed.

For over 23 years, Doug Bell has been key to McDonald's success in Florida. Doug and the team at MHD consistently go above and beyond for their clients, identifying possible problems that may impact our business long before they become unmanageable issues for us, and provide strategic counsel and navigation within the legislative process on our behalf. With Florida being one of McDonald's largest markets, I heavily rely on Doug and his team to help build relationships with state lawmakers and other key officials, monitor activities at the Capitol and advocate for important legislation and regulatory issues. Our relationship with Doug and the team at MHD has proven to be invaluable.
