Some Tips On Preparing a Written Complaint

  1. First, make a separate list of the things you want to say. Try to separate your feelings from the facts. Present the events in the order in which they happened, using dates whenever possible.
  2. Type or print legibly in BLACK ink.
  3. Enclose copies of documents such as contracts, letters, advertisements, sales slips, warranties, papers or other documents that may support your complaint. KEEP THE ORIGINAL FOR YOUR FILES.

MAIL your complaint to this office, we need an original copy of the signed complaint form to begin the review process.


Upon receipt of your complaint, we will review the complaint and any supporting documents. This review can last from two to eight weeks, depending on the circumstances, and the information you are able to provide with your complaint. After the review, this office will send you a written response. Although you may feel that you have been “ripped off,” this does not necessarily mean that the business has engaged in unlawful activity which is within our jurisdiction.


We are prohibited by law from giving you legal advice, legal opinions or acting as your private attorney.

If you do not know an attorney, you can locate one by referring to the Yellow Pages of your telephone directory or by contacting the Lawyer Referral Service of the Orange County Bar Association ( If your claim is $5,000 or less, you may be able to file a suit in Small Claims Court.
