Each month our office receives more than 2,000 e-mails asking for help or information. We have found that many of the constituent inquiries fall into the same categories. In some cases, these inquiries can more efficiently be handled by the agency that specializes in the area of the complaint.  In order to help serve you in a more timely manner, we have provided answers to the most asked questions in each of these categories in Help by Topic.

State law prohibits the Attorney General, deputy attorneys general, and assistant attorneys general from engaging in the private practice of law.  This means that they cannot represent private citizens in court either to bring an action on behalf of an individual, or to defend an individual. Any private citizen needing such representation should consult a private attorney.
