Individuals and Families

The Attorney General’s Office assists consumers, the elderly, crime victims, military service members and veterans, and others with a wide range of programs and services.


Tens of thousands of consumers turn to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office each year for help resolving consumer issues, tips on scams and deceptive practices, guidance on debts owed to the state, and information on a wide range of other topics.

Military and Veterans

The Attorney General’s Office offers services to address the specific needs of veterans, full-time military service members, and mobilized Guard and Reserve personnel. Through the office’s Patriot Program, assistant attorneys general volunteer to provide certain legal services at no cost to military personnel and their families.

Senior Citizens

The Attorney General’s Office provides a number of services to meet the needs of Ohio’s older adults, including resources to avoid scams, investigation of patient abuse and neglect in long-term care settings, and programs that enhance seniors’ safety.


The Attorney General urges Ohioans to help make their state a safe, enjoyable place to live and work. By filing a consumer complaint, reporting fraud and abuse, turning in someone who may be inappropriately prescribing or distributing prescription drugs, or submitting a lead that could crack an unsolved crime, citizens can help create a better Ohio.


Victims of crime face many setbacks as a result of their tragic and unexpected circumstances. The Attorney General’s Crime Victim Services Section provides funding and services to aid victims, training for professionals who assist them, grants for victim service providers, and crime prevention programs for Ohio communities.
