Carole Suzanne Bess has been practicing law in Brevard County, in the area of bankruptcy and helping people manage their debts for 24 years. She and her firm have been instrumental in pioneering a successful mortgage modification program and recently achieved a $235,000 principal deduction for a client.

She was interviewed by Scott Pelley of “60 Minutes” in January 2012, and was featured in an episode of “60 Minutes” in March 2012. The episode was filmed in response to the number of layoffs that have occurred as a result of the ending of the NASA Shuttle program, and the resulting economic devastation on the Space Coast of Florida.

Additionally, she has taught seminars and published several legal articles.

Carole is the mother of five children, the proud new grandmother of “Nate,” and currently resides in Brevard County with her husband and three youngest children.
