Attorney General, Michigan
A former criminal prosecutor and civil rights attorney, AG Dana Nessel’s core initiatives have mirrored her promise to Michigan’s residents — to give the Department back to the people that it serves. AG Nessel’s consumer protection divisions have taken a lead role in fighting against companies that try to take advantage of consumers, whether it be through unfair utility rate increases or unscrupulous business practices.
As the people’s lawyer, AG Nessel believes that the Department of Attorney General has a moral and ethical responsibility to stand up for everyday Michiganders. She has worked hard to make the Department as accessible as possible by opening satellite offices in rural parts of the state and holding regular townhalls on a variety of issues ranging from elder abuse to clean drinking water.
