Jay and I reported on the sessions we attended, and we (the editorial “we”) fixed the link to the post on lien stripping.
Now’s the time for some reflection on the experience as a whole.
Here’s my list of big-picture ideas and to-do’s .
- Need to be on top of state law
- Need for comprehensive and verifiable client disclosures about choices and consequences
- Myriad of ways to defeat preferences beyond waiting
- Potential in the new mortgage claim rules
- Stern v. Marshall may not cut as wide a swath as we feared
- The AG’s settlement may have real benefits for my clients if I can figure out how to access those benefits
- The issue of bankruptcy crimes and client failures to disclose are real, complex, and pervasive
- Reaffirmations are problematic, messy and need more of my attention
- Friends and other lawyers are almost as valuable as convention speakers as a source of learning.
- I need a 36 hour day
How about you? What stood out for you at NACBA if you were lucky enough to be there?
I’m back to my computer, preparing for our workshop in St. Louis in June.
