Prof. Lynn LoPucki Bankruptcy Visuals Flowcharts for Ch. 7, 13 and 11

Prof. LoPucki’s visuals are the BEST thing I have ever seen for mapping out the bankruptcy process. Perfect for taking a big picture view of cases and thinking about details you might have overlooked in any case. I bought two hardcopies of each to keep in my office.

As Consumer Lawyers, We Do Many Types of Cases That Other Lawyers Won’t Touch

Maybe you practice in Family Law, Bankruptcy, Worker’s Compensation, SS Disability, Torts/Negligence, or Estate Planning. If you do, there is a good chance that some of what we do could help your clients, and you may not even know it.

Domestic / Family Law

Have you considered how your client’s divorce would be helped or hindered if they or the opposing spouse (or both) filed a bankruptcy before or during their divorce? When huge debt is a problem for both parties, a bankruptcy plan and a way to deal with debt collectors becomes all the more important.

SS Disability Law

We know your clients are often deep in debt, with no way out until they receive their social security benefits. Bankruptcy or debt collection claims may be good ways to stop overzealous collectors from harassing your clients.

Torts / Negligence

Clients that may need a way to handle their mounting debts are sometimes the more difficult cases to manage. Maybe analyzing the benefits and risks of a bankruptcy or debt collection claim would help your client deal with mounting debts now, while waiting for the settlement or judgment on a case later. Even when bankruptcy is not appropriate, knowing the lay of the land is always a good idea.

General Practitioners / Family / Disability / Bankruptcy / etc.

Have you ever had to turn away a client with a student loan crisis because you didn’t know how to handle it? We probably could provide much needed advice about handling student loan debts.
