Help With A Federal Agency

If you are having trouble solving a problem with a federal agency on your own, I may be able to assist you. While I can't ask the agency to do anything which they are unable to do under law or regulations, I can make sure that all of your rights are respected and that errors in procedure are corrected.

If your situation is an emergency (an urgent passport request, an ill family member overseas etc.) please contact my District office for immediate assistance.


Please read the following before submitting your request:

  • Because of the Constitutional separation of powers between the three branches of government, judicial matters (matters which involve courts) do not fall under my jurisdiction as a U.S. Representative. Examples of judicial matters include: child custody, divorce, and criminal trials or imprisonment. In these cases, you should contact an attorney.
  • Once you submit your request by clicking the button below, you will receive an email confirming your submission has been received. If you do not receive an email within the hour, please contact my office. Otherwise, a member of my team will be in touch with you as quickly as possible to discuss your situation and how I can help.
Please note: While a caseworker is available to obtain information regarding the status of a constituent's application or claim, this office has no authority to expedite a person's application ahead of others. Caseworkers can assist constituents by providing information about the process for applying for a government benefit or service. A Congressional office, however, cannot file the claim and does not have the authority to instruct a federal agency to approve or deny an application.
