Comments Note that there is a relationship between Consumer Complaints and terms in the Legal Services section, particularly Consumer Law. A good rule of thumb is to look here for organizations that try to work within the system to resolve problems without resorting to legal intervention; and to look there for resources to explore when those options have failed and a legal remedy is required.
