Alabama - Attorney General

As the state’s attorney, he provides legal representation for the state of Alabama, its officers, departments, and agencies. The Attorney General defends the state in all lawsuits in which the state is named as a defendant. He represents the state in all court proceedings wherein the constitutionality of a state statute is challenged.

In addition to defending the state, the Attorney General may initiate court action, both civil and criminal, to protect the state’s interests or to enforce state law. The Attorney General represents the state in all criminal actions in the appellate courts of the State of Alabama and in habeas corpus proceedings in the federal courts. He has the authority to superintend and direct the prosecution of any state criminal case. The Attorney General issues legal advice through formal or informal written opinions to authorized public officials and agencies.

The Consumer Protection Section serves as a mediator of disputes between consumers and businesses.  Although the Attorney General cannot serve as a private attorney for an individual or provide consumers with legal advice, the Consumer Protection Section can successfully mediate complaints to the mutual satisfaction of the consumer and the business.  The Consumer Protection Section also receives consumer calls and provides information regarding check scams and mortgage fraud, as well as other consumer related fraud.
