I’m going to use this blog post to give a little free publicity to a deserving organization. In my Bankruptcy Alphabet, N is for NACBA.
I am proud to be a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. NACBA was founded in 1992 and currently has over 5,000 attorney members from all 50 states. It offers services to attorneys, advocates in Washington D.C. for debtor-friendly legislation, and provides bankruptcy information to consumers. One of the most useful tools for consumers is the NACBA Attorney Finder. Simply enter your Zip Code and the distance you are willing to travel, and you’ll get a list of NACBA members who can help you with your financial problems.
NACBA members have access to various Listservs and sample pleadings. The Listserv members offer advice and opinions to each other on a wide range of bankruptcy topics. Even the most experienced attorney can benefit from bouncing ideas off of colleagues from around the country. And the Document Exchange allows attorneys to see the pleadings others have filed in various situations. Why reinvent the wheel? If something unexpected crops up in your bankruptcy case, who do you want on your side? The NACBA member who has thousands of fellow members willing to help solve the problem, or the general practice attorney who files a few bankruptcies each year and may not know where to turn for help?
If you’re looking for a bankruptcy attorney, I recommend you begin your search with the NACBA Attorney Finder. No matter where you live, you should be able to find a NACBA member serving your area. Bankruptcy is a specialized field of law. When your financial issues lead you to consult with an attorney about bankruptcy, it just makes sense to work with someone who is familiar with the field and committed to representing debtors. And that describes the typical NACBA member perfectly.
