8:30 - 9:00 am – Coffee, Mixer, Registration and Welcome
This is an important time to renew old acquaintances, make new acquaintances, and examine various educational materials that will be available. The contacts that you make during this time will be valuable to you for the purpose of referrals and questions to other colleagues in the future.
Remember, in the field of Foreclosure Defense and Mortgage Litigation, the usual rules of competition and market share do not apply. In this field of law practice the prevailing rules are cooperation and collaboration because of the huge need that continues to be driven by the large number of homeowners who are in need of legal assistance to solve their particular mortgage situation.
9:00 - 10:30 am – Introduction and Current Overview of Mortgages 2001-2012. Review of Securitization and Mortgage Operations (90 minutes credit.)
Here we will examine some of the more recent cases, articles, court rulings, and legislation that have affected and continue to affect this field of law practice.
What are the recent developments in various states such as Illinois, New York, Florida, California, and other states. Come prepared to give input on some of the latest court and legislative happenings in your state.
What about Nevada Assembly Bill 284? What is the current state of Mortgage Mediation in Nevada?
One cannot adequately appreciate and apply the effective solution involved in debt relief from mortgages unless one understands how the problems were created in the first place. We will examine the securitization process in detail. How it was designed to work originally, and how that design was in fact abused, and why, and by whom it was abused.
10:30 - 10:45 am – Break for 15 minutes
10:45 - 12:15 pm – Difficulties with Civil Litigation and Finding the Legal Forum of Choice for Mortgage Litigation. Meeting the Practical Requirements for Debt Relief. (90 minutes credit)
We will look at the types of cases that have been filed in the civil courts, both State and Federal. We will talk about the results of those cases and the Judiciary and their approach to these cases. Most importantly we will address why they have taken the approach they have. To be truly successful in court litigation the successful attorney needs to understand where the judiciary is coming from in their approach and why.
We will address the Federal Bankruptcy Courts and why they are considered by many to be the legal forum of choice for both foreclosure defense and mortgage litigation for those many clients who are not facing a loss of their home, but are significantly upside down in value in relation to the amount of debt on their property. The prospects are that most of that value will not return anytime in the near or even distant future. Consequently, steps have to be taken now to address this situation. In December of 2012 the exemption for 1099 income tax from mortgage forgiveness will disappear. It is important that homeowners begin to take action now before it is too late.
It is important to fully understand how bankruptcy works, and what are the requirements for the client to take advantage of the protection and relief that is available in the Federal Bankruptcy system.
We will discuss an overview of bankruptcy in terms of which debts can be discharged and which debts cannot be discharged. We will help you determine if Bankruptcy is the right solution for your client.
We will discuss the Automatic Stay. We will speak about whether your client is eligible for Bankruptcy, and the requirements for Chapter 7 and the requirements for Chapter 13. How and when does Chapter 11 fit into the picture? We will look at the effect of prior bankruptcies, debt limits, income taxes, child support, and alimony payments.
We will discuss formulating your client’s Payment Plan, and the necessity for a Financial Management Course.
What is the Means Test, and how does your client pass this test? We will review the Bankruptcy Forms, how they are filed and the meeting with the Creditors.
We will reveal the strategies to win in the Bankruptcy forum.

What evidence do you need to prevail for your client against your opponent’s motion to lift stay? Where do you find that evidence, and how do you best use that evidence to get the result you desire for your client?
