My partner, Ed Hays, will be presenting and speaking at the Orange County Bankruptcy Forum’s (OCBF) Trial Advocacy Program on Saturday, November 5, 2011, at the Chapman University School of Law. This program features, among other things, a mock non-dischargeability trial.
As you may know, Ed has actively litigated bankruptcy adversary proceedings including non-dischargeability cases for 19 years. Of course, our focus at Marshack Hays LLP is always on achieving client-driven results in all forms of bankruptcy-related litigation, including non-dischargeability matters. We are proud of our litigation capabilities, and we aggressively pursue such matters when appropriate. This is a great opportunity for Ed to share his experience with other lawyers facing the challenges of taking cases to trial in our bankruptcy court system.
This OCBF Program will also feature the Honorable Erithe Smith as presiding judge and moderator along with William Burd; Evan Smiley; and Cathrine Castaldi. The participants will focus on all aspects of trial practice in the context of a non-dischargeability case, including trial preparation, opening statements, direct and cross-examination of an expert, cross-examination of the debtor, closing arguments, final comments and questions.
More information about the program is available through the Orange County Bankruptcy Forum.
