To kick off the new program, CVLS is hosting three CLE-qualified trainings with Attorneys Salvador Lopez and David Yen. Both Sal and David have years of experience in bankruptcy and working with lower-income clients. The first training, “Analyzing the Case and Advising your Client”, covers how to assess a potential client’s financial position to determine whether bankruptcy is the best option for them. Sal and David go over the basics of protected income, Illinois exemptions, and property. They also discuss the purpose of Chapter 7 bankruptcy as well as the associated benefits and risks. Attorneys who have completed the trainings will be invited to join CVLS’s new bankruptcy panel.
