Military Consumer Protection
The Attorney General's Consumer Law Section investigates and prosecutes businesses that engage in unlawful, unfair, or deceptive practices targeting members of the armed forces, their families, and our veterans. We also remain in regular contact with our sister law enforcement agencies, and with military legal assistance attorneys and financial counselors at installations throughout California.
Information and resources on miltiary consumer protection are available from the Military Consumer Protection Day web site.
If you are a servicemember in need of legal assistance please contact an armed forces legal assistance office. A list of offices is available at the Armed Forces Legal Assistance Locator Web Site. Members of the California National Guard may also contact the State Staff Judge Advocate's legal assistance program. Military members may also access financial counseling services through their local Army Community Service, Fleet and Family Support, Airman and Family Readiness, Coast Guard Work-Life, or Marine Corps Community Service office. Persons who are not eligible for armed forces legal assistance may obtain a referral to a certified lawyer referral service or to a legal aid organization by contacting the State Bar of California.
Military legal asissistance offices and financial counselors may send case referrals to the California Attorney General's Office, Consumer Law Section, 455 Golden Gate Ave., Suite 11000, San Francisco, CA 94102.
