Texas Bankruptcy Laws and Obligations

September 21

Enhance your knowledge of the bankruptcy laws and procedures in Texas.

Bankruptcy cases typically involve a wide variety of parties and run the gamut in terms of live issues. Many parties do not understand the typical process of a bankruptcy case well enough to approach monitoring and involvement in the case in the most efficient way possible, frequently deciding to avoid the problem, particularly when that party is already out of money. This topic will provide information about the basics of bankruptcy, but with a focus on uncovering advocacy opportunities and unveiling some bankruptcy tricks typically employed in cases, to enable more informed and better armed representation in bankruptcy cases.
