Approved for Dual CLE Credit, Bankruptcy
The CLE Program "Bifurcated Fees and Unbundling of Services in Chapter 7: Access to Justice" was originally presented and recorded on September 10, 2019.
When a Chapter 7 client needs to file a petition to receive the protections of the automatic stay but cannot afford the full Chapter 7 fee pre-petition, how may bankruptcy lawyers comply with ethics and code requirements to bifurcate the Chapter 7 fee and unbundle Chapter 7 services? Join United States Bankruptcy Judge Suzanne H. Bauknight on a discussion of the pitfalls of bifurcation and unbundling as well as options for successfully providing access to justice to clients who cannot afford to pay the full Chapter 7 fee before filing the petition.
Speaker: Hon. Suzanne H. Bauknight, U.S. Bankruptcy Court
