Jim Cossitt is slated to be a featured speaker at the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney’s 24th Annual Convention, where he will be making two presentations.
On Thursday May 19, he and Rachel Foley from Kansas City, MO, will be providing new lawyers and non lawyer staff a quick overview of exemptions and best practices for advising clients in this complex and very important area of bankruptcy law.
On Friday, May 20, Jim will join Russ DeMott of South Carolina in a panel discussion entitled “Squirreling It Away? Bankruptcy Exemption Planning,” which will address the fine line between legitimate exemption planning and prohibited transactions. The panel will also provide practical advice and best practices suggestions for advising clients in this confused area of the law.
NACBA’s Annual National convention is the largest gathering of consumer bankruptcy attorneys in the country and features four days of educational sessions presented by the nation’s most accomplished attorneys, judges, trustees and other legal industry leaders.
The Conference will be held May 19 – May 22, 2016, at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, CA.
