“State investigators work to protect consumers from financial harm by investigating unscrupulous workers who tend to prey on unsuspecting, vulnerable homeowners interested in upgrading or making improvements to their houses. These investigators work with local district attorneys’ offices to see cases through to prosecution and hopefully to make things right with the victims through restitution.” – CSLEA President Alan Barcelona
