Charlotte Bankruptcy Education for Realtors & Financial Professionals

With bankruptcy filings surging, people are turning to non-bankruptcy  financial professionals  for bankruptcy counseling. These professionals include real estate agents, non-bankruptcy attorneys, financial advisors and others. Then there’s the internet.

It’s human nature to try to help a client, but sometimes the advice given by someone with no bankruptcy training can do the person in financial distress more harm than good.  People who’ve received advice from a trusted advisor are likely to trust what they say even when it’s incorrect.  My law partner and I spend an inordinate amount of time debunking the so-called common knowledge that our clients walk in with.

This is why I hope to see a full house at the March 1 seminar I’ll be teaching with two other bankruptcy lawyers, “Nuts and Bolts of Bankruptcy Law.”

The course will begin with the fundamentals of various bankruptcy chapters and their subsequent procedures of filing and litigation. Additional topics in the seminar to include: administering the means test and permitted exceptions; understanding the duties for debtor’s counsel and the rules governing bankruptcy petition preparers; how to create Chapter 13 repayment plans that satisfy creditors and clients; converting a Chapter 13 to a Chapter 7 is permitted; and conducting and analyzing client intake interviews. The seminar will carry continuing education credit for Continuing Legal Education, Institute of Certified Bankers, International Association for Continuing Education Training and National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.

Held on March 1, 2010 from 9:00 – 4:30pm at Doubletree Hotel, 2600 Yorkmont Road, Charlotte, NC, seminar details available through: National Business Institute,
