Registration Closes:
Expand your ability to help bankruptcy clients by learning how to seek payment for providing the services your clients need, but can’t pay for. In this two hour-long seminar you will learn how to navigate the various laws surrounding how to collect fees from parties other than your client, including the new chapter 13 fee provisions, fee-shifting statutes, rule changes allowing fees from creditors and employment by the estate.

We will discuss the unwritten rules regarding fee applications that are passed down through law firm culture that many solo, small firm, or new attorneys never learn, or learn the hard/expensive way. This seminar will explore using consumer protection laws and fee shifting provisions to enable your representation of debtors who are unable to pay.
