Ways to resolve your complaint

Consider your options. Remember, you must pursue remedies in your private dispute on your own. The Attorney General cannot provide you with legal advice or represent you in personal legal actions.

You may obtain a referral to a certified lawyer referral service by contacting the State Bar at 866-442-2529 (toll-free in California) or 415-538-2250 (from outside California), or via their website at: http://www.calbar.ca.gov.

If you cannot afford a private attorney, you may consider contacting your local legal aid office.

For a referral, visit www.lsc.gov and click on the Find Legal Assistance tab. View Complaint Steps
