Grateful for FOIA Help

Michigan is one of only a couple states that denies its prisoners the right to file requests under the Freedom of Information Act. So, HFP helps when and where it can. Which results in kind notes like this:

"I’m writing to let you know that I received the file from your attorney today, and words can’t express how appreciative I am! Without you and the rest of your team I may have never got this file. So thank you guys, all, very much for your help!"
