BE MY GUEST!

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. We just learned that we can bring guests to our CLE tomorrow being held at 1411 Broadway. (All guests will receive free NY and NJ CLE credit.) Details are below. The catch: you need to e-mail Eileen O’Connor (copied) asap if you can attend. Date: 11/29/16 Time: 1-4 p.m. Location: Withum, Smith and Brown, 1411 Broadway (x39 & x40), New York City 10018 (9th Floor) Title: Cracking the Code (What Environmental and Commercial Real Estate Attorneys Need to Know About the Bankruptcy Code) Description: Have you ever listened to a restructuring colleague explain an issue and wonder if she was speaking a foreign language? Well, you are not alone. This course will introduce attendees to “Bankruplish”: the slang relied on by all of your bankruptcy colleagues that uses nonthreatening numbers to describe (often) hostile outcomes. By the end of this course, you will achieve a beginning level of fluency in key sections of the United States Bankruptcy Code, the United States Bankruptcy Rules. You will also be introduced to local “dialects” (including, the District of Delaware, the District of New Jersey, and the Southern District of New York). Through a fact pattern discussing a commercial real estate property with environmental issues, attendees will also review a petition and complete a proof of claim. IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT, PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH A FRIEND WHO STILL NEEDS 2016 CLE’S!

Debtor's Prison in the US? Maybe, if you are not paying your student loans!

We have always thought that there is no such thing as a Debtor's Prison in the USA. People with bad debt are not treated as criminals unless the debt itself is the result of specific forms of criminal activity. Well, that may not be the case. In today's financial news, Bloomberg discusses a recent case where the Department of Justice arrested a man for a 29-year-old unpaid student loan debt. http://bloombergview.com/articles/2016-02-18/shirking-your-student-loan-shouldn-t-end-in-handcuffs

5 Must Have's in a Bankruptcy Attorney 

Perhaps oversimplifying, but this is a good article to guide anyone who is in need of assistance in a bankruptcy case.  I like it because it highlights some of the things I really stress: (1)  only hire someone you feel comfortable working with (2) avoid "mills" where you will be treated like a number; and (3) hire a real bankruptcy attorney, not a general practitioner that just does bankruptcy from time-to-time.  Bankruptcy is a complex area of law and you need counsel that knows their way around the Bankruptcy Code
