Attorney Melchionne goes to Washington

Together with other members of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, Mr. Melchionne went to Washington, D.C. to meet with Congressional leaders to discuss fixes to the disastrous Bankruptcy law changes enacted in 2005. Staff of the Connecticut delegation learned about the increases in foreclosures in the state and the consequences of burdensome document production and the useless pre-brankruptcy credit counseling which help only 3% of potential filers. Unlike previous years, reception to discussion of these problems was warm and the staff of newly elected Chris Murphy listen intently.
