The National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) today announced that Atlanta attorney Carol A. Colliersmith has been elected to a key leadership position on its board of directors. The move was decided at the group’s national meeting in Chicago in April 2015.
As a director on NACBA’s board, Colliersmith will be responsible for ensuring that NACBA continues to play a key role in shaping the outcome of policy-related debates on consumer bankruptcy issues in Georgia and in regular visits to Capitol Hill.
Carol A. Colliersmith said “One of my goals as state co-chair for Georgia for the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys has been to serve on NACBA’s board of directors so this is a wonderful development. In this leadership role, I hope to influence more judges, local lawmakers and attorneys in Atlanta to promote solutions to the burdens of debt caused by factors beyond the consumers’ control.”
Colliersmith practices bankruptcy Law in Atlanta with her law partner and husband, Rob Colliersmith. She has practiced exclusively Consumer Bankruptcy Law since 2001. She is the past president of the Metro Atlanta Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys Group, an active member of the Bankruptcy Section of the Georgia Bar and Atlanta Bar Association, and the American Bankruptcy Institute.
She received her law degree from the University of Florida in 1985.
