Thank you for contacting the City Attorney’s Office, Affirmative Civil Enforcement Unit.

Please complete this form to the best of your knowledge. If you have any documents supporting your complaint, including advertisements, receipts, invoices, cancelled checks (front and back), contracts, and emails, please scan them into your computer before starting this form. You will be able to attach your scanned documents by clicking on the paper clip below the form.

An attorney and/or investigator will review your complaint once it is received. In the meantime, if you change your telephone number, e-mail, or mailing address, please let us know so that we may contact you if necessary.

Due to legal requirements and limited resources, the Affirmative Civil Enforcement Unit is not able to fully investigate or file an action against every suspect about whom complaints are received. Further, the Affirmative Civil Enforcement Unit does not represent individuals. In the event we investigate your complaint or file an action, it would not be on your behalf, but rather on the behalf of the People of California.

Any action this office pursues or declines to pursue has no effect or bearing on any potential claims or remedies you may have. Therefore, you should immediately take whatever private lawful action you deem appropriate to protect or enforce your individual rights. Two services that may be able to assist you in pursuing a private remedy are: Small Claims Court (619) 236-2700 and Lawyers Referral Service (619) 231-8585.

If you need to send any supporting documents after submitting this form, please email them to or mail copies of them (do not send originals) to:
1200 Third Avenue, Suite 1100
San Diego, California 92101
