The Southeastern regional office opened in New Bedford in February 2000 with a goal to bring the resources of the Attorney General’s Office into the Commonwealth's communities.
Staff participate in various outreach projects with local organizations and provide informational workshops on issues affecting residents. This office is a valuable resource for residents who have questions, or require information or consumer assistance for many issues. Consumer related matters such as auto sales/repair problems, retail sale disputes and issues with home improvement projects can be addressed by consumer specialists. Staff from the Fair Labor Division can assist with workers’ rights and wage issues. Staff on site can help with auto, life & homeowners insurance issues. The Southeastern Massachusetts team is knowledgeable of the resources available throughout the Attorney General’s office, and can provide referrals to community organizations or other government agencies most appropriate for specific needs.
Assistant Attorneys General also participate in the Abandoned Housing Initiative which works to rebuild vacant properties and create safe neighborhoods for the communities we serve.
Residents are encouraged to call, fax or walk-in to this local branch for assistance. No appointment is necessary, office hours are Monday thru Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
