Bio: Former Rep. Billy Lee Evans

excerpted from Kessler & Associates marketing materials, page 12

The Honorable Billy Lee Evans
Partner, Kessler & Associates

The Honorable Billy Lee Evans serves in an Of Counsel position for Kessler & Associates concentrating most of his efforts on banking, trade and tax issues. A native of Georgia, Mr. Evans served six years in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Georgia’s Eighth District. He had previously represented Macon for eight years in the Georgia House of Representatives both as a Republican and as a Democrat.

Prior to his service in Congress, Evans headed his own law firm and was highly successful as a trial attorney. The skills and values that he acquired helped him to appreciate the problems of small businesses faced with governmental red tape and made him a skillful advocator for the private sector.

In Congress, Evans served on the Judiciary, Public Works and Transportation, Small Business, and Narcotics Abuse and Control Committees. Evans was a leader in bankruptcy reform, improved tools for law enforcement, and stiffened penalties for criminals. He was recognized for his efforts on behalf of farmers and businessmen, and received numerous awards for his efforts to curtail wasteful government spending.

While in Congress, Evans was a co-founder of the conservative Democratic Forum, which was instrumental in the successes of the Reagan Legislative Agenda in 1981 and 1982. A fiscal conservative, Evans served on the executive committee of the Democrats for the Re-election of Reagan-Bush in 1984.

Since leaving Congress in 1983, Evans has maintained his association with a majority of the Representatives and Senators on both sides of the aisle and now enjoys having some of his closest friends chairing major committees. Because of his concern for the best interest of the Member, Evans is trusted and respected by the Members and is always able to secure a fair consideration of his clients’ point of view.

Although concentrating on the Banking, Ways and Means, and Energy and Commerce Committees; Evans, nevertheless, is equally adroit at handling matters before all other House and Senate committees. An astute legislative tactician, Evans believes that his clients are usually best served by a well-reasoned, low-key approach in disseminating his clients’ message to the appropriate Members and their staff.
