Ballard Spahr litigation associate Daniel J.T. McKenna was recently elected to the Board of Directors of Clarifi, a nonprofit organization that assists consumers struggling with debt and provides financial literacy programs to help them gain control of their finances. He will serve a two-year term on the 18-member Board.

Founded in 1966 as Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Delaware Valley, Clarifi helps clients in the greater Philadelphia area—regardless of income level—who face overwhelming debt, overextension of credit, poor credit history, or bankruptcy. The organization also counsels people who are experiencing health-related emergencies and major life changes, as well as those who are facing reduced income. Additionally, Clarifi assists first-time homeowners.

“Clarifi’s mission really appealed to me, since my practice deals with a variety of consumer finance and mortgage banking issues,” Mr. McKenna said. “I’m looking forward to serving alongside other community leaders and working with Clarifi’s senior management to help the organization achieve its goals.”

Mr. McKenna is a member of the Consumer Financial Services and Mortgage Banking Groups. He has handled complex class actions, claims against consumer lenders, commercial litigation cases, and general tort claims.
