Mr. Nemeth has been representing consumers and small businesses in bankruptcy proceedings in Northern Ohio and elsewhere for over 30 years.  In April, 2013 Mr. Nemeth was the first recipient of the NACBA Hammes-Shulman Award for his significant achievements in legislative advocacy. As a result of his leadership, individual efforts, and testimony before both chambers,  the Ohio state legislature re-wrote the state exemption statute first in 2008, providing consumer debtors with a much more favorable set of exemptions, and again in 2013 when it increased the homestead exemption more than fivefold.  Mr. Nemeth is a frequent presenter on consumer bankruptcy issues at local, regional and national continuing legal education conferences, and is often asked to comment on such issues in the media.  He has been invteviewed and reported in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio and Al Jazeera, among others. He has represented clients in a considerable amount of consumer litigation against lenders, mortgage brokers, mortgage servicers, collection agencies and their law firms in stay and discharge violation, breach, fraud, civil conspiracy, truth-in-lending, RESPA, FDCPA and other matters in which he has won substantial awards for his clients. He is member of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys [NACBA] and has been named a “SuperLawyer” for many consecutive years by his community peers.
