Nuts and Bolts Part II: For the New Bankruptcy Practitioner
Nuts and Bolts of Bankruptcy is a two-part series for the lawyer or paralegal interested in learning the basics of filing chapter 7 or chapter 13 cases. Part I focused on the means test and the initial filing of a bankruptcy case. Part II is designed to help the practitioner through the meeting of creditors to confirmation of a chapter 13 plan and beyond.
The morning will kick off with debtor’s attorney and Chapter 7 panel trustee, Christal L. Caudill; and from the office of the United States Trustee, Pamela Rice and bankruptcy analyst Pete Sergakis. The panel will discuss preparation for the chapter 7 “341” meeting of creditors and the most effective way to deal with an inquiry from the United States Trustee’s office.
John Kennedy, attorney for the Chapter 13 Trustee, and debtor’s attorney Adam Barclay will continue the discussion as it relates to chapter 13 cases. They will provide invaluable insight on how to work with the chapter 13 Trustee’s office and get a chapter 13 plan confirmed.
The seminar will conclude with attorneys Judith McInturff and Nannette Dean who will focus on what happens after a chapter 13 case is confirmed. It is common for a chapter 13 repayment plan to last five years and a number of unexpected issues can occur during that time. Ms. McInturff and Ms. Dean will share their knowledge and experience on common post-confirmation issues.
The seminar is Friday, April 3, at the Columbus Bar, 9 am-12:15pm. Register online or call 614/221.4112.
