Volunteer Lawyer Training: Representing a Pro Bono Debtor in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Monday, October 7, 2013 3:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Join the BBA Bankruptcy Law Section Public Service Committee and the Volunteer Lawyers Project of the BBA for a training on representing a pro bono debtor in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  The faculty for the annual program will include Susan Grossberg of Grossberg Law Offices, a consumer bankruptcy practitioner with extensive experience representing Chapter 7 debtors; Warren Agin of Swiggart & Agin, LLC, who frequently serves as a Chapter 7 trustee; and Emily Jarrell, an attorney from the Volunteer Lawyers Project. 

The training will cover the basics of representing a Chapter 7 debtor on a pro bono basis, including pre-filing considerations and counseling, preparation of the petition, maximizing exemptions, the role of the Chapter 7 trustee, and the 341 meeting of creditors. Lawyers of all experience levels are encouraged to attend the training and reception to facilitate networking with newer members of the bankruptcy bar.  There is no fee for the training, but attendees are strongly encouraged to put their learning to use by taking on a pro bono case through the Volunteer Lawyers Project. 

A reception will be held after the training.
