The ABI conference will feature prominent national speakers on timely topics in both commercial and consumer bankruptcy, as well as a plenary session titled "Views from the Bench," led by a panel of eight Florida judges.

"Florida remains one of the nation's hardest hit states, leading the country in Chapter 7 bankruptcies, and trailing only Georgia and California in Chapter 13 filings," said Beth Mason, InCharge's Director of Outreach Programs for Bankruptcy Services. "When you combine Florida's unemployment rate of 10.5% (end of 2011) and continuing housing problems, bankruptcy education and professional services across the South continue to be in high demand.  InCharge is an active supporter of ABI events with these factors in mind."
