AmStar CLE Offers 'Nuts and Bolts' of Bankruptcy Law for Georgia Attorneys

Predicted Economic Woes for Georgians in 2010 Prompt Attorneys to Add Valuable Bankruptcy Services to Their Practices

SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- As the face of bankruptcy changes in Georgia, attorneys practicing bankruptcy law find themselves with an opportunity to provide invaluable service to consumers while protecting their practices from the effects of the recession. Because of the continuing economic crisis, the demand for bankruptcy services in Georgia continues to grow. Georgia had the third-highest personal bankruptcy rate in the country last year. What's more, a higher percentage of Georgians opted to file Chapter 7 rather than Chapter 13, thus wiping out debts as well as most assets. Financial experts predict that the economic crisis will continue through 2010, meaning that more Georgians will likely face the prospect of filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. For this reason, it is advantageous for attorneys to arm themselves with the most up-to-the-minute information on bankruptcy law.

AmStar Litigation Support, a leading national provider of continuing legal education (CLE) and legal process outsourcing (LPO), will offer the comprehensive course "Nuts and Bolts of Bankruptcy—Recession Proof Your Practice" on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, at the University of Phoenix DeKalb Learning Center in Atlanta. This one-day CLE offers invaluable information for Georgia attorneys who already offer bankruptcy services as well as those who want to add bankruptcy to their practices.

Through a step-by-step approach, participants learn the most effective ways of handling Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. The seminar covers the following topics:

  • Choices in bankruptcy—choosing the right tool for the job
  • The initial consultation
  • Due diligence
  • Client interview and necessary paperwork
  • Preparing the petition and schedules
  • Filing the case
  • Two Cases Studies (Chapter 7 and Chapter 13)
