Attorney, Consumer Enforcement

Federal Deposit Insurance Company

bahn-josephineJosephine Bahn likes to work on hard-to-prove cases involving deception, unfairness and fraud in banking at the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (FDIC).

“I took a job at the FDIC because I wanted to help consumers who might not understand the networking of complex financial products, or the differences in mortgages,” Bahn said. “I work to protect the integrity of the country’s financial system for current and future generations.”

Bahn is a former law clerk for federal judge Joel H. Slomsky in Pennsylvania, where she worked on resentencing juvenile offenders who committed murder while younger than 18 years old. “Under a recent Supreme Court case, those offenders would be eligible for parole and subsequent release from the justice system,” she said.

Bahn, a fundraising volunteer with the Junior League of Baltimore and a public member of the Montgomery County Commission on Veterans Affairs, is setting an example as a new mother. “I’ve built a life my daughter will learn from that shows a tireless work ethic, trust in the justice system’s fairness and a desire to leave this world a better place than I found it.”
