ADVOCATE ♦ CONSULTANT STRATEGIST ♦ VISIONARY
ABOUT MISTY WILKS
As a Washington Times editor put it, “Misty Wilks is an attorney, community activist, educator and broadcast personality. In Los Angeles she work[s] with Black/Hispanic issues, and is passionate about youth empowerment. Her approach is a sort of a common-sense, ‘what the heck?’ reality-check type of commentary. She’s a total people person, and a fighter for the underdog, but at the same time, can play devil’s advocate to get the conversation balanced. She is a fantastic person to start local and national discussions [on] issues relating to ‘who we are and where we are going’ topics. Think Oprah on Espresso!”
Misty Wilks is a renaissance woman with a dynamic and motivating presence. She personally identifies as a ‘serial volunteer’. Her life and career interests have led to decades of civic engagement and work with a wide network of diverse communities – primarily underserved and under-represented populations through various outreach and community-based initiatives throughout Los Angeles, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Mexico and abroad. Misty also owns and manages WilksLaw a bi-coastal law and consultancy practice focusing on both homeownership preservation, debt reduction and credit building through bankruptcy and advocacy & support for low-income stakeholders disenfranchised and/or and the organizations that support them. Misty hopes to inspire others to engage with, and seek ownership within their communities; to pursue knowledge and history, and to develop a mentality of wealth that values assets over brands. She believes money is a tool to use in the fight for justice.

Use bankruptcy as a financial management tool to:
