Help With A Federal Agency (Casework)
One of the most important things I do as your U.S. Representative is help you gain access to and information about the Federal government. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person's behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. My district office in Lake Dallas can help you obtain reliable information, order forms and intervene on your behalf with a federal agency.
