Jim Cossitt is scheduled as a featured speaker at the 22nd Annual Convention of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA). The Convention will take place April 10 – 14, 2014, in New York City. NACBA’s Annual Convention, held each spring, is the educational seminar of choice for consumer bankruptcy attorneys nationwide. Judges and nationally-recognized speakers provide case law updates, practical tips on effective representation of clients, information on emerging trends nationwide, and in-depth discussions of topical issues.
Jim Cossitt will be part of a panel of experts discussing “Bankruptcy for Formerly Important People.” The discussion will address high-income debtors’ issues, including managing the expectations of clients.
The NACBA is the only national organization dedicated to serving the needs of consumer bankruptcy attorneys and protecting the rights of consumer debtors in bankruptcy. NACBA has also played a critical role in many important court cases affecting the rights of consumer bankruptcy debtors by filing amicus briefs in U.S. Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court, with many of those case decisions influenced by NACBA’s participation. In addition, NACBA provides the most comprehensive educational programs in the country for consumer bankruptcy attorneys with its annual conventions and workshops.
