Freedom of Information Act Response Requirements

Are you running into issues responding to a Freedom of Information Act? Let Legal Eagle help you navigate your documents and respond quickly, accurately with a quick turnaround time.


We all understand that a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) ensures informed citizens have access to federal and state public records and documents. Often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government, litigators use the Act to secure public information as evidence in a legal case. Personal privacy, national security and law enforcement are often exempt from responding to and providing documents.


Many state agencies face FOIA requests from the press and concerned citizens. Legal Eagle can assist with the many challenges of:

  • identifying information requested,

  • creating a workflow to review,

  • determine responsiveness,

  • and produce the information requested.
