The Attorney General's Office provides information and informal mediation to consumers and businesses. If you have a question or want assistance resolving a problem, please contact one of the Consumer Resource Centers listed below.
The Attorney General is prohibited from acting as a private attorney on an isolated complaint. If your complaint demands immediate legal action, you should consider private legal action in Small Claims Court (no attorney necessary) if your claim is under $5,000. If your complaint involves more than $5,000, you should seek a private attorney. You might also consider arbitration.
