The Arizona Attorney General serves as the chief legal officer of the State. The Attorney General is mandated by our constitution and elected to a four-year term by the people of Arizona. The Attorney General's Office represents and provides legal advice to most State agencies; enforces consumer protection and civil rights laws; and prosecutes criminals charged with complex financial crimes and certain conspiracies involving illegal drugs. In addition, all appeals statewide from felony convictions are handled by the Office.
The mission of the Arizona Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section is to:
- Protect the public, including veterans, from consumer fraud, antitrust and anti-competitive conduct;
- Provide advocacy and public education on consumer protection issues with an emphasis on fraud and abuse;
- Enforce tobacco laws and orders and to help reduce underage sale of tobacco products and to provide legal representation in judicial and administrative cases and legal advice and assistance in legislative and rule-making matter to state agencies.
