Constituent Services

Serving you is my top priority which I do with great honor. My staff and I are always pleased to assist you with questions or problems that you might have with federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Social Security Administration, or the Internal Revenue Service. My constituent caseworkers are available to help with a wide-range of federal matters, including problems with Social Security and Medicare benefits, immigration visas and veterans’ benefits. Although we cannot order a federal agency to decide a matter in your favor, we can help you get a prompt response. In addition, please visit or call my district office. The contact information is as follows:

Commerce Office:
500 Citadel Drive, Suite 320
Commerce, CA 90040
Phone: (323) 721-8790

In addition, I have special constituent service office hours staffed by my caseworkers to provide individual assistance to you or your family at different locations throughout the 40th Congressional District. Please check out our Community Office Hours where you can meet with an individual caseworker. Please note: the Constituent Service Hours are subject to change, so please contact the Commerce office at (323) 721-8790 before the scheduled day and time.
