Bio:

My name is Ed Boltz and I have been practicing consumer bankruptcy law since 1998. I currently practice bankruptcy law for the middle district and manage the Durham law offices of John T. Orcutt. I enjoy consumer bankruptcy because I can directly help clients obtain justice, financial security and debt relief even against the massive power of banks and other financial institutions.

I received my undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 1993 and my law degree at George Washington University having graduating in 1996. Since 2006, I have served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) and will commence my term as president in January 2013.
