Bankruptcy Basics For the Non-Bankruptcy Lawyer – Ed Hays and Richard Marshack Give MCLE Presentation at OCBA “Last Dash – 2012” Event

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.



We see the big picture! The attorneys at Marshack Hays Wood are well-versed in protecting creditors and their rights both before and after a bankruptcy case is filed.
