E16 Consumer Rights Talk: Guest Ira Rheingold

Consumer Rights Talk host Adam Deutsch interviews Ira Rheingold, the Executive Director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates. Ira began representing consumers in the greater Washington D.C. area in the early 1980’s and went on to influence an overhaul of lending practices and foreclosure law in Chicago.  Thereafter, he became the Executive Director of NACA, the National Association of Consumer Advocates.  NACA is a trade organization of more than 1,500 attorneys committed to the representation of consumers victimized by fraudulent, abusive and predatory business practices.  In our discussion, Ira talks about how his time as a litigator influenced the leadership he now strives to provide, we hear about ongoing projects and goals for NACA and discuss a vision of consumer rights for the future.
