Who We Are

“We help clients achieve their business and organizational objectives through strategic communications, influencing audiences ranging from corporate to community.”

Straightline Communications LLC is a strategic public relations and marketing firm based in Los Angeles, California. Since 1991, our overriding focus is to develop meaningful solutions for companies and organizations to more effectively influence their target markets and achieve their goals.

We’ve supported large companies across a broad range of industries, and we’ve helped start-up ventures get on their feet. We’ve also aided non-profit organizations to develop core messages to create mindshare about social issues. Large and small, we value each of our clients and are proud of the long term client relationships we’ve maintained over the years.

Directed by agency founder Linda O’Hanlon, all our work is handled by experienced team members who have a proven track record in their areas of expertise.

We operate on a cost-efficient basis but have the wherewithal to service all our clients’ needs—drawing on a diverse range of in-house and third party resources. Our structure allows us to bring together the right teams and resources to best meet our clients’ needs.

What does all this mean to clients? We deliver large agency strategic thinking and services without high overhead costs and layers of account management.
