Bankruptcy advocate to share local stories with legislators in Washington, DC

Local attorney Lorene Lynn Mies, host of “Bankruptcy Minute,” a minute radio spot that shares helpful information, will be traveling to Washington DC on Feb. 25 as part of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA).

The NACBA was formed in 1992 to ensure that the voices of consumer debtors and their attorneys are heard in the halls of Congress, the Judiciary and other arenas affecting consumer debtors.

As a California Advocate Leader for the NACBA Mies will be traveling to Washington, DC for the “NACBA Capital Hill Shop” Feb. 26-27 to meet with legislators to keep them informed of the key issues bankruptcy clients in the area have encountered.

Mies’ main goal is to meet with congressman, senators and their staff, share with them citizen’s stories, concerns, and needs in the area she represents, and establish a working relationship with them and the public in order to become their “go to” person.

To help do this Mies needs your input; she is gathering stories to take to Washington, DC. These stories may be from people who have been affected adversely by 1) student loan debt, 2) debt settlement scams, or 3) victims of loan mod scams and foreclosure.

If you have a story to tell, email Mies at or call her office at (951) 894-4791. To learn more about Mies, go to
