Freedom of Information


The Government lives on paperwork. Government agencies collect information about you. Law enforcement writes reports about you. Lobbyists and bureaucrats correspond about issues that affect you, your family, and your business. 

But what happens when you request copies of those records? Too often, the government goes into hiding. They deny access to the records they’ve generated with your tax dollars, hiding behind exceptions and loopholes in the law.

That’s where Matt comes in. Since 2014, Matt has litigated dozens of Freedom of Information Act cases in state and federal courts from coast to coast. When you hire Matt, he’ll fight for your right to access government records that the government would prefer to hide.
