Over the past 20 years we have built a reputation of providing consumers with compassionate, confidential and experienced counseling services that help them navigate what is often a complex and confusing process.

American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) announced today that it will participate in the 20th Annual National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) Convention in San Antonio, TX from April 27th through April 29th.

The non-profit consumer debt counseling agency – based in Newton, Mass. – will staff an exhibit booth with members of ACCC’s bankruptcy counseling team and provide discounted access to bankruptcy courses for the conference’s 700 registered bankruptcy attorney attendees and their clients.

The NACBA is the only national organization dedicated to protecting the rights of consumer debtors in bankruptcy. Formed in 1992, the organization now has more than 4,000 members located in all 50 states.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to showcase our bankruptcy counseling expertise to an organization that is dedicated to protecting consumers across the nation,” said Steve Trumble, President and CEO of ACCC. “Over the past 20 years we have built a reputation of providing consumers with compassionate, confidential and experienced counseling services that help them navigate what is often a complex and confusing process.”

Fitch Ratings recently reported an 8- to 10-percent decrease in bankruptcy filings for the first quarter of 2012, as compared to the same period of 2011. Nonetheless, bankruptcy lawyers are seeing more activity from student loan debtors – with some reporting increases in such cases of 25 to 50 percent, according to NACBA.

Coupon codes for discounted bankruptcy courses will be available at the American Consumer Credit Counseling booth at the NACBA convention or by calling 1-866-826-6924.

“I am excited for this opportunity to represent ACCC at the NACBA Convention,” said Catarina Carreiro, a counselor within ACCC’s Bankruptcy Counseling Department. “As counselors we work collaboratively with attorneys to ensure that clients are aware of their options and make this important decision with confidence.”
