Public Records / FOIA

What is FOIA?

The Freedom of Information Act allows the public to request access to certain records from federal agencies. The agencies are required to provide the requested information unless it falls under any of the nine exemptions which protect matters of personal privacy, national security, and law enforcement.

How do I make a FOIA request?

Submitting a FOIA request is an easy process; start by checking if the information you want is publicly available. If not, simply send an email to mporfirio@lyonsts.com and reasonably describe the records you seek. We’ll send a confirmation that your request was received within one business day; the records will be provided within 3-5 business days depending on the request.
