FOIA / Government Records

Trusted, strategic, and dedicated legal representation for FOIA and other government record requests.

Governments hold a wealth of information. In many cases, the public has a right to access that information through records requests to the proper government entities. Knowing what to ask for, who has the documents, and fighting agencies when they resist disclosure requires dedication and experience in this area. Siri & Glimstad has filed hundreds of requests on behalf of our clients to various federal and state agencies pursuant to the federal Freedom of Information Act and the equivalent state law disclosure acts. We have also handled requests made in foreign countries. Our extensive experience in prosecuting these requests includes dozens of appeals and numerous federal lawsuits.

The following are just a few of the Federal agencies from which we have successfully obtained records:

  • Department of State
  • Department of the Treasury
  • Department of Health & Human Services
  • Equal Opportunity Employment Agency
  • Federal Trade Commission
  • Food & Drug Administration
  • National Archives and Records Administration
  • National Institutes of Health
  • Patent and Trademark Office
We have also successfully handled record requests on the state level across the country, including in New York, Colorado, Arizona, Wyoming, and California, as well as in other countries, including the United Kingdom.

We take pride in our thoughtful, careful, and strategic approach to every engagement, large and small, and our clients appreciate our methodical and strategic approach to securing information from federal, state, and foreign agencies. Let us have an opportunity to understand your interests, evaluate your needs and provide our strategic assessment.
