Trey J. Blocker, the Founder of Stalwart Strategies, is a native Texan with more than 20 years of political, legislative and legal experience. He represents various clients, ranging from small trade associations to Fortune 100 companies, with issues before the Texas Legislature and state agencies. Subject matters cover the spectrum – from healthcare to taxation to oil & gas and beyond. He also serves as an ethics advisor to elected officials and candidates from both political parties, corporations, and PACs, helping them maintain compliance with the state’s complex campaign finance and legislative ethics laws.

Blocker began his journey in politics as an intern for the Governor of Texas in 1995. In a very short time, he literally worked his way from the mailroom to the executive suite where he assisted the Governor with daily tasks. Blocker then served as the legislative director for several members of the Texas House of Representatives, and then Chief of Staff / General Counsel for a prominent state senator. After graduating from the University of Texas School of Law, Blocker joined one of Texas’ top law firms as a litigator, lobbyist, and ethics attorney. His litigation practice focused on eminent domain and land use matters, drawing on experience representing both condemners and landowners to ensure his clients received the best possible representation in this highly specialized field.

Blocker’s political experience includes working on several Texas House races and successfully managing a race for an open Texas Senate seat covering 36 counties. It was during this time Blocker began advising candidates on campaign finance law. He now has over 15 years of experience representing clients before the Texas Ethics Commission, forming and operating political action committees, and providing general guidance on ethics compliance issues.
