If you need assistance working with a federal agency directly, my office can assist you by serving as a link between you and the appropriate government agency. I cannot however override agency decisions, assist with state or local government matters, provide council for judicial matters, or intervene in disputes between private entities. However, my staff and I are happy to assist you and provide you with appropriate resources and information to resolve these matters. Be sure to keep records of all correspondence you have with the federal agency as well as my office throughout this process.
