Wesley Young, legislative director for The Association of Settlement Companies (TASC), will be a speaker at the American Bar Association Annual meeting Saturday in Chicago.
Young will serve on a panel entitled "Debt Settlement - Navigating the Legal and Ethical Minefield." The panelists will discuss the ethical aspects of the debt settlement industry from the prospective of the creditor, the regulator and the industry itself.
"TASC holds its member companies to strict guidelines, and of course those include ethics," Young said. "As such, I'm looking forward to explaining how debt settlement still is a viable option for those struggling with their debt."
The other panel speakers are Alan Kaplinsky (Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll LLP), Beth Moskow-Schnoll (Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll LLP), Ricardo Kilpatrick (Kilpatrick & Associates, P.C.), Rebecca Pruitt (Consumer Fraud Bureau of the Office of the Illinois Attorney General), James Wyman (JPMorgan Chase) and Carolyn Lee Hann (Federal Trade Commission).
Young will be speaking on his third panel in two weeks.
