Marshall.  Expected to attend will be bankruptcy trustees, attorneys, and representatives from organizations like InCharge Debt Solutions that offer vital services to those consumers needing bankruptcy courses and counseling.

"Pennsylvania showed some improvement in bankruptcy filings last year, but the state still ranked sixteenth in per capita filings," said Beth Mason, InCharge's Director of Outreach Programs for Bankruptcy Services.  "Bordering states are still struggling, for example Ohio, Maryland and New Jersey continue to experience greater than four filings per 1,000 people.  These are Pennsylvania events but we will participate in several of the Bar Association Institutes which makes them ideal places for InCharge to showcase our courses to the top bankruptcy trustees and attorneys."
