Advocating for Taxpayers and Consumers

Over the past four years, our team:

  • Taken Equifax to court to demand accountability for a massive data breach that exposed the data of millions.

  • Recovered millions for individuals targeted by predatory lenders and collection agencies.

  • Called for the end of the competitive electric supply industry in Massachusetts, which fails to deliver on promises of reduced rates and cost consumers more.

  • Launched a nation-leading investigation of Facebook and their partnership with the company Cambridge Analytica, the data-analysis firm that worked for Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

  • Established the Consumer Advocacy and Response Division to combine multiple programs within the AG’s Office under the shared goal of enhancing our state’s approach to consumer assistance.

  • Stood up for public utility consumers by successfully advocating for rate cuts.

  • Fought for families being crushed by rising health care costs.

Mine is the only elected office that brings more back than it costs. Last year, that meant more than $800 million for Massachusetts taxpayers.

And at its core, being the People’s Lawyer means standing up for consumers targeted by bad actors, whether enormous companies like Equifax or a used car dealership down the street. These stories rarely make the front page, but I know how much this work matters to our families.

Today, it seems, there is no end to the ways consumers can be victims of predatory companies and scammers. It is my duty and my honor to stand up for you and to ensure anyone that does business in our state plays by the rules and follows the law.

We are proud to be a resource for anyone hoping to learn more about their consumer rights. Over the last three years, we have greatly bolstered our work within the community and expanded educational opportunities by creating the Attorney General’s first-ever Community Engagement Division to bring the work of the people’s law firm directly to the people.
