By D. Edward Hays:
On January 14, 2012, Richard Marshack and I presented an hour-long program at the “20th Annual MCLE Last Dash & Trade Show″ Continuing Legal Education Marathon organized and sponsored by the Orange County Bar Association (OCBA). Our presentation was titled: “Bankruptcy Basics for the Non-Bankruptcy Lawyer” and took place at Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, California.
We enjoy educating practitioners and enhancing the practice of bankruptcy law in our community. Since bankruptcy law and its related areas of commercial litigation are highly specialized areas of practice, it’s not easy to present a coherent overview to non-bankruptcy practitioners in a single hour—even those experienced in other areas of law—and we find the challenge and the experience rewarding. During our presentation, Richard and I used written materials in the form of an enhanced outline, which we promised our audience we would make available on our website. You will find the outline here: Last Dash – Bankruptcy Basics for the Non-Bankruptcy Lawyer.
The OCBA is a California State Bar approved provider of Mandatory Continuing Legal Education. The OCBA offers a wide variety of continuing legal education programs including a yearly “Last Dash” program designed to provide MCLE credit for lawyers who need to complete multiple hours of education prior to an upcoming deadline. The OCBAs “Last Dash” programs are always fun and we look forward to our next opportunity to participate.
D. Edward Hays will be presenting and speaking at the Orange County Bankruptcy Forum’s (OCBF) Trial Advocacy Program at the Chapman Law School. This program features, among other things, a mock Non-dischargeability Trial and is scheduled for Saturday, November 5, 2011.
Ed has actively litigated non-dischargeability cases for many years and regularly reviews these and related issues for clients of Marshack Hays LLP.
This OCBF Program will also feature the Honorable Erithe Smith as moderator and judge; William Burd; Evan Smiley; and Cathrine Castaldi. The Program will focus on all aspects of trial practice in the context of a Non-dischargeability case, including the pre-trial order, opening statements, admission of evidence, cross-examination and closing arguments.
More information about the program is available through the Orange County Bankruptcy Forum, www.ocbf.org.
Richard Marshack and Ed Hays will present a program to tax and estate attorneys at the 31st Annual Southern California Tax & Estate Planning (SCT&EP) Forum. Their presentation partner for the panel is Barry S. Engel of Engel & Reiman in Colorado. The focus of the presentation is bankruptcy trustees’ ability to recover beneficial trust interests held by debtors.
This is an area of particular interest to estate planners and attorneys who design trust estates amid the confusing aspects of bankruptcy law and the various state laws made available to bankruptcy trustees.
Mr. Engel is a highly regarded asset protection lawyer from Colorado and Ed and Richard are pleased to combine their talents with his. The SCT&EP Forum takes place on October 26-28, 2011, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego, California. This panel presentation is on Thursday, October 27, 2011, and is titled:
Keeping the Wolves from the Door: How Effective Are Third Party and Self-Settled Trusts in Protecting a Beneficiary’s Interest in a Trust from Creditors’ Claims and the Reach of the Bankruptcy Trustee?
