For thirty years I have represented thousands of people with financial problems. Each person faces many of the same stresses and concerns. What will happen to my home? How can I recover from this credit nightmare? I have been asked these same questions time and again. This blog is a place where people seeking advice on how to deal with their financial stress, may find some solutions and hope for the future. There is life after bankruptcy. Don’t wait to take the first step to a financial fresh start.
So let’s start talking bankruptcy.
Ft. Worth Bankruptcy Lawyer Carey Ebert has a passionate belief in the rights of individuals with financial problems, and has built her career around her commitment to preserve the right of individuals to get a fresh financial start. Her practice is 100 percent consumer and small business bankruptcy law.
She has been an active leader among her peers both locally and nationally. Carey is President Emeritus of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), an organization of 4000 bankruptcy attorneys across the nation. She has served as president of the Northeast Tarrant County Bar Association in 1998-99 and has been quoted in many newspaper articles around the country.
Through her role as a NACBA board member, she has aggressively fought against the erosion of the right to bankruptcy guaranteed by the US Constitution. “I think this is very important,” she comments. “Each year since 1996 Congress has considered laws which would make it harder for individuals to achieve bankruptcy protection. I am proud that NACBA has led the fight to keep important personal rights in place.”
Besides her active leadership roles, Carey frequently lectures at seminars on basic bankruptcy litigation and bankruptcy attorney fees. She’s also presented papers at SBLI (Southeastern Bankruptcy Law Institute) in 2005, 2007 and 2009 on matters pertaining to bankruptcy and has participated in numerous panels.
Carey attended Newcomb College at Tulane University in New Orleans where she graduated cum laude with honors in Public Policy. She then attended the Texas Tech School of Law in Lubbock, from which she graduated in 1985 with Board of Barrister honors. She was admitted to the Texas Bar in 1985, and to the US District Court in the Northern District of Texas in 1986.
