Q: How can I file a legal complaint?

A: The Georgia State Conference Legal Redress Committee appreciates your complaint. However, due to the volume of complaints received, the Legal Redress Committee may not be able to personally respond to each complaint it receives. Therefore, we will keep your complaint on file. Your complaint does not create an attorney client relationship. Submission of a complaint does not mean that the NAACP has accepted your case, and you should consult an attorney regarding your case, as soon as possible, as there are certain filing deadlines that must be adhered to in order to file a case in court.

Know that your complaint is important to us and we will evaluate your complaint in our continuing effort to ensure the political social and economic equality of all citizens, in accordance with the NAACP's mission. Click Here to File a Complaint
