Volunteer Opportunity: Consumer Affairs Unit, D.A.ís Office

 

The Boulder County D.A.ís Office is seeking a volunteer with a professional backgroundto assist in handling consumer fraud complaints. The Consumer Affairs division mediates consumer complaints that cover a wide variety of problems encountered by consumers, from auto-sales to building contractors. Staff attempts to negotiate a fair settlement between consumers and businesses to keep the issue out of court. Mediation may take two weeks, or can turn into civil or criminal investigations that last months. Volunteers are trained in consumer law and deal with their own caseload of complaints. The volunteer needs exceptional communication skills, good judgment and patience, and an ability to deal effectively with the public. Daytime hours, prefer two four-hour shifts per week for a minimum six-month commitment.
