Mission Statement

"Through continuing education, training, and open discourse the Consumer Bankruptcy Association seeks to promote excellence and civility in the practice of Consumer Bankruptcy Law."

Speaking Event Held on April 26, 2016

Detroit Consumer Bankruptcy Association's speaking event held on April 26, 2016 at the Westin Hotel in Southfield, Michigan was a success. "In The Money Without Being Taken Down By It" featured Chief Judge Phillip J. Shefferly and Mark H. Shapiro who had a conversation with Ryan Broyles and Ron Bellamy, two former Detroit Lions who maximized their financial circumstances to ensure they could hold on to their good fortune. They discussed living within your means, even when your means are generous, as well as taking advantage of secondary choices when your original career plans change.

After the Program, Mark Shapiro sent the following thank you to the panelists: "I know I am sounding like a broken record, but I just had to tell you guys one more time what a fantastic job you did last night. Everyone I talked to, from the Board and members of the Consumer Bankruptcy Association, to my 13 year old daughter and her best friend were fascinated with what you had to say and understood the lessons you'd learned and were sharing with the group. You guys were just awesome. Most importantly of all, I think Ron said at one point that when people meet him, he wanted them to see and treat him as a person first, and a former NFL player second. Not to minimize your careers as athletes, but what you guys did last night made people appreciate your minds and smart decisions far more than your talents as athletes."
