Share Article

The California State Bar Association, the largest state bar association in the country which serves as the educational, licensing and discipline body for California attorneys, has invited leading consumer protection attorney Robert F. Brennan to address its members concerning the legal remedies for privacy breaches and false and inaccurate information on background checks and credit reports. Mr. Brennan will be joined by fellow identity theft and privacy expert Mari Frank, Esq., an Orange County attorney, and Beth Givens, director of California’s Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. The three panelists plan to provid a very informative presentation on the state of California law in the emerging area of public and private concern.

“Information privacy is a thing of the past, but legal remedies to control the accuracy of information in your credit and background check reports is the wave of the future.” So stated leading consumer protection attorney Robert F. Brennan of Brennan, Wiener & Assoc. in La Crescenta, Ca., about his upcoming presentation to the California State Bar Association Annual Convention in Long Beach.

Mr. Brennan joins noted consumer privacy and identity theft attorney Mari Frank, Esq. of Orange County, and Beth Givens, Director of California’s Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, on the panel. Their presentation is schedule for Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. at the State Bar Annual Convention in Long Beach.

“This really is a presentation for all consumers and not just for lawyers,” comments Brennan. “These days, with the information brokers like Lexis/Nexis and the three major credit bureaus presuming that they own your identity, private and personal information about everyone has been sold and spread widely, usually without any consumer’s knowledge or consent. Realistically, no one can expect true privacy in the digital age. The real battleground will be in making sure that the information is accurate or is corrected when false information is added to someone’s identity. False reports of bankruptcies, evictions, foreclosures repossessions, delinquent accounts or even criminal convictions are all too common on the credit reports and background checks of so many consumers, and they really have no idea how to address the problem. Our panel is, I should hope, the first of many such panels to educate both the legal community and the community at large about how to protect your identity and how to clean up and remedy false or inaccurate information.

“From what I understand, the public is welcome at the panel discussion. Attorneys need to register for the Convention but non-attorneys should be able to attend.”
