Lessons from Harris v. Viegelahn
Monday, April 11, 2016, 60 minutes
3 PM Eastern / 2PM Central / 1PM Mountain / 12 PM Pacific

Presented by: Chief Judge Melvin S. Hoffman of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts, Tara Twomey of NCBRC and Brett Weiss, Esq. of Chung & Press, LLC

Registration deadline: 4/11/16 at 2PM Eastern.
$25 Member / $75 Non Member
Registration HERE

In Harris v. Veigelhan, the Supreme Court resolved a disagreement among courts over the question of whether a debtor or his creditors should receive funds derived from the debtor’s post-petition wages held by the trustee under a confirmed chapter 13 plan when the case is converted to chapter 7 in good faith. In a clear, concise, and narrowly focused decision the Court ruled in the debtor’s favor. Subsequently, some courts have applied Harris broadly to deny payment of debtor’s counsel in other circumstances.

This webinar will review the various post-Harris cases that have been decided and offer practical suggestions for ways in which debtor’s counsel can get paid in unsuccessful chapter 13 cases.

If you are unable to participate in webinar at scheduled time, register by 4/11/16 at 2 PM Eastern and you will receive recording, materials and discounted pricing. After 4/11/16, the webinar will be available in the NACBA Store.
