Just as no two people are alike, individual bankruptcy cases are not homogenous.
This course will discuss how to approach individual bankruptcy cases while anticipating those differences. Not all individual cases are consumer cases, nor are all consumer cases truly consumer debts. Individuals with mortgage issues may fare better in chapter 11 than 13. Delaying a filing may yield more benefits than an emergency filing. Understanding these differences is key to serving each client effectively, from intake through litigation. This course will also address protecting practitioners in an area where Congress treats lawyers as the clients' enemy. This is not just an introduction to bankruptcy law - the goal is equipping you to meet clients and their needs.
This course is pre-approved for CLE credit in the following states. If your state is not listed, contact support for more information on how to receive credit

An ardent foundational lecture anchored by a speaker who is like sunshine with a big energy field around him. A solid, thorough, practical conversation fortifies a good nuts and bolts review to approaching individual bankruptcies. The material is explained in an easy and comprehensible manner. There is a vast difference between acquiring information and understanding it. And there’s an even wider gap between understanding it and implementing it, or doing it. Success hails from one dedicated and focused step at a time. Successful bankruptcy attorneys will take this material and use it every day. Follow Greenwald’s template to speed up the process of getting from information acquisition to skill implementation.
excellent presenter! excellent material!
Needed more time!! Very interesting - good overview!!
