Freedom Of Information Act Requests

A Skilled Advocate For FOIA And Touhy Requests

Access to public records is a necessary component of an accountable and transparent government. Such access can also prove valuable information to businesses reliant on the research and policies of various government agencies.

The Freedom of Information Act of 1967 (FOIA) gives Americans the right to access information held by government agencies, but the methods of uncovering such information can be fraught with complexity. An attorney who is experienced in FOIA requests can streamline the process for you and help you pinpoint the most crucial information you need.

A Touhy request seeks the testimony of federal employees or production of official records of a federal agency related to litigation in which the United States is not a party.
