About This Course
No one wants to file bankruptcy. It's scary. The biggest problem is that consults are afraid of losing their property if they file. If you can show a consult that he won't lose much, if anything, by filing, you are seen as a hero, and are a major step closer to having them retain your services. The key is in clearly explaining to consults how exemptions work, and in your having enough skill to navigate various exemption problems. It's more than just knowing the statutes, and exemption analysis and planning is an important part of bankruptcy planning that goes well beyond what bankruptcy software can do. It's a chance for a lawyer to actually be creative, and functions as a major sales tool for a bankruptcy practice. This CLE program will cover the law and take you from basic concepts to an intermediate level in handling exemption problems that crop up all the time, and give you an approach to handling unique problems.
