Help with Federal Agencies
Are you having trouble with a federal agency? Do you believe you were treated unfairly?
If you can't get an answer from a federal agency in a timely fashion, we may be able to help resolve your concerns or get you the information you need. We care about our constituents and are committed to working in your best interest. While we cannot guarantee a favorable outcome, we will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem.
Residents of the 23rd Congressional District of New York can contact our office for assistance in dealing with federal agencies. We have caseworkers across the District who specialize in different case areas and are ready to assist.
