C. Peter Sorenson

Experienced attorney, lawyer, and advocate, licensed to practice law for over 30 years. At my law firm, Sorenson Law Office, we specialize in matters under the federal Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA. The Freedom of Information Act was enacted in 1967 to provide any person the right to request access to records or information from any federal agency (with nine exemptions).

After decades of award-winning work in general law, plaintiffs’ toxic tort, criminal defense, and litigation under the National environmental protection laws, Sorenson Law began focusing solely on Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) law. As one of the leading FOIA firms in the nation, Sorenson Law has provided countless FOIA law consultations, submitted hundreds of FOIA requests, negotiated dozens of administrative appeals, and filed and won numerous judicial reviews in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in Washington, DC.

Our mission is to provide excellent client FOIA services to obtain records from Federal agencies, to be the best law firm in the Nation handling FOIA cases, and to advance the purpose and ideal of the Freedom of Information Act.

We handle your case with our signature personal touch. We listen to you with patience and learn about your case to better understand how to acquire the records you seek. You, our clients, speak directly with our attorney by phone and video call. We are here to answer your questions, whether to help with casework or billing. There are no dumb questions! We are a phone call, email, or text away. No getting lost in a voicemail web of “press this number or that.” We value each client and meet you where you are, whether you are a sophisticated computer user, or don’t own one. You don’t need a law degree to file a FOIA request, but it helps to have a FOIA lawyer on your side. We help you get your FOIA request right, so if it goes to administrative appeal or judicial review, you have the best chance at obtaining your records.
