Sayles & Winnikoff Communications has added a professional dimension to the strategic planning, development and execution of the Broadcasting & Cable Annual Hall of Fame Awards. During their tenure the event has grown significantly both in stature and attendance, which is due in no small part to their contribution in the communications area raising both awareness and prestige at the highest levels of the television industry. We are pleased to be partnered with this committed group of media professionals and consider them to be an integral part of our team.

Working with Sayles & Winnikoff Communications has been a remarkable experience. I cannot stress enough how much we value and appreciate Alan and Carina. Their ability to work across the various partners in our collaborative “For Youth By Youth” digital storytelling initiative, and masterfully represent each of our voices, surpassed our expectations. They are an effective and efficient communications firm that includes strong expertise in digital media, and the children, youth and family markets; plus they have the experience necessary to react quickly to rapidly changing needs and requests.  Sayles & Winnikoff Communications not only brought these qualities and characteristics, but they demonstrated enormous energy, detail, and innovation to our newly launched program, including getting us published in a variety of multi-media news outlets. Just as important as their professionalism, they are great people to work with and we look forward to finding ways to secure their services in the future.

We asked the team at Sayles & Winnikoff to do several impossible things – understand the quirky corporate structure that we’re still developing; work within those evolving boundaries; learn about an emerging field of scientific study; brainstorm how that field applies to business; develop a shifting, flexible strategy for promoting and publicizing our content and ideas within that newly defined applied business field; all while dealing with a petulant and very needy client lead (i.e. me).  The fact that they were able to do all of that, and so much more, all of which exceeded our unreasonable expectations, and none of which involved murdering this petulant, needy man, is a testament to their skills, patience, client-focused attention and learning and, probably, their lack of sharp stabby objects. They are great.

Since my firm started business with Sayles and Winnikoff Communications, we have been quoted and featured in over 100 times in local, national, and international publications resulting from their efforts. Sayles & Winnikoff has been instrumental in doubling our revenue over the course of a year from the time we started our relationship with them in 2017.

Sayles and Winnikoff has given us the opportunity to rebrand our practice, emphasizing the niche we had already started to cultivate. Rebranding our firm from criminal defense to cannabis law is especially difficult when cannabis policy is constantly changing. At the time, there were already significant players in the field. Now, Margolin and Lawrence is exclusively a cannabis practice largely because of the work that Carina Sayles and Alan Winnikoff have done for us. Many of our competitors were not able to achieve the cultivation of a cannabis niche the way Sayles and Winnikof has helped us to create, giving us an advantage as we navigate cannabis law.

The public relations firm is able to set up radio, newspaper interviews on almost a moments notice. In addition to helping us attract business, their ability to create media opportunities in locales that we were entering for the first time has instilled confidence in new clients, who can have continued confidence in our representation.

Carina Sayles has gone above and beyond in helping me realize my dream in becoming an author.With the revenues increasing over the past year, I was able to put those funds towards hiring a co-author and turn my dream into a day job. She has helped seek out opportunities in finding an agent, publisher, and more
