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?
