Get Started

The first thing you should do if you have a problem with a business is to try to resolve your problem with the company directly.

Types of Complaints We Handle

Our office handles complaints involving consumer transactions that affect the public good. We prioritize these complaints based on whether they represent an ongoing pattern of improper behavior. If another state or federal agency has specific jurisdiction to handle your issue, we must refer your complaint to them.
