I have a busy calendar of seminars I plan to attend over the next several weeks. On Monday, October 24, I attended a workshop on foreclosure defense covering emerging issues, service regulations and issues surrounding the federal Home Affordable Mortgage Program (HAMP). From my own experience, it seems that there is still a huge amount of confusion from the banks regarding the provisions of HAMP. Even though this seminar is up in Albany, I think it is worth it to hear the latest on these contentious issues, and perhaps learn something that I can use to help people in my practice.
I am also going to a workshop on Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings in early November with some of the biggest names in the field of creditor and debtor law in our area. It looks to be a good program going over recent developments in that field as well.
