Carey D. Ebert

About me

Fort Worth Bankruptcy Lawyer Carey Ebert has a passionate belief in the rights of individuals with financial problems, and has built her career around her commitment to preserve the right of individuals to get a fresh financial start.


Fort Worth Bankruptcy Lawyer Carey attended Newcomb College at Tulane University in New Orleans where she graduated cum laude with honors in Public Policy. She then attended the Texas Tech School of Law in Lubbock, from which she graduated in 1985 with Board of Barrister honors. She was admitted to the Texas Bar in 1985, and to the US District Court in the Northern District of Texas in 1986.


Her practice is 100% consumer and small business bankruptcy law.


She has been an active leader among her peers both locally and nationally. Fort Worth Bankruptcy Lawyer Carey Ebert is President Emeritus of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), an organization of 4000 bankruptcy attorneys across the nation.

She has served as President of the Northeast Tarrant County Bar Association in 1998-99.


Fort Worth Bankruptcy Lawyer Carey Ebert has been quoted in many newspaper articles around the country including:

  • U.S. News and World Report

  • Fort Worth Star-Telegram

  • Dallas Morning News

  • Fort Worth Business Press


Through her role as a NACBA Board member, she has aggressively fought against the erosion of the right to bankruptcy guaranteed by the US Constitution. “I think this is very important,” she comments. “Each year since 1996 Congress has considered laws which would make it harder for individuals to achieve bankruptcy protection. I am proud that NACBA has led the fight to keep important personal rights in place.”


Fort Worth Bankruptcy Lawyer Carey has lectured at seminars on Basic Bankruptcy Litigation and Bankruptcy Attorney Fees to other bankruptcy attorneys through her association with NACBA.


Fort Worth Bankruptcy Lawyer Carey Ebert has been a frequent lecturer at numerous prestigious programs throughout the United States.


Carey has presented papers at SEBLI (Southeastern Bankruptcy Law Institute) in 2005, 2007, and 2009 on Means testing and Defining Motion to Dismiss under 707(b)(2)&(3) as it pertains to bankruptcy.


She has participated in panels at the University of Texas Galveston Bankruptcy Law Program in 2011 and has been on the faculty at the State Bar of Texas Advanced Consumer Bankruptcy Program in 2007 and the 2010 Bench Bar Conference for the Northern District of Texas.


Carey has also been a panelist at every NACBA Conference since 1998.
