Hold October 28-29 for NACBA’s Member Only Workshops at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. I’m on the organizing committee which has assembled the outline of three stunning tracks of skill building for bankruptcy lawyers at all levels.
Jay Fleischman and I are planning 2 days looking at the business side of being a bankruptcy lawyer: getting clients, getting paid,and getting comfortable with the numbers that tell us how we’re doing. With Jay involved, you know we’ll look at marketing and client care. We’re going to build a lawyer website live and do a couple of law firm make-overs. Then we’ll explore the lessons, applicable or not, in the E-Myth Attorney.
The second track will focus on standing, mortgage escrow analysis, and claims objections, with a segment in that track being a repeat of the presentation done for bankruptcy judges on mortgage and securitization issues. Bill Purdy is on board to school us in the tax implications of debt, foreclosure, modification and settlement.
Jill Michaux is heading up the bankruptcy basics track, with a focus on choice of chapter and diagnosing your client’s needs, including a dose of real world ethical considerations. I’m slated to try to unravel the means test, in public no less<g>.
We’ll get an analysis of the changes to the bankruptcy rules and a case law update.
Save your pennies; look for bargain airfares, and clear your calendar for two really productive days of new skills and new ideas.
