The Office of the Attorney General's Consumer Mediation Service is recruiting new Volunteer Consumer Complaint Mediators for its October 6, 2003 class. Volunteers mediate consumer complaints over the phone or by mail in the Attorney General's Augusta Office. The Attorney General thoroughly trains its Mediators in consumer law mediation techniques. Mediators are asked to volunteer approximately six hours a week on a schedule convenient to them. During the past year, the Consumer Mediation Service recovered over $578,000 for Maine consumers. If you are interested in volunteering, please call Assistant Attorney General James A. McKenna at 626-8842 or e-mail him at If you leave your name, address, and phone number, we will contact you as soon as possible. We can also send you a brochure that more fully describes our Program.  We will train volunteer mediators again in May, 2004.
