Diane L. Drain to be featured speaker on “Demystifying Current Real Estate Problems.
The other day a caller said “I used a document preparer or bankruptcy petition preparer. Certainly they have obligations to keep my social security number confidential?” Unfortunately I had to say “Oh how wrong you are.”

Demystifying Current Real Estate Problems. Diane L. Drain will be a featured speaker at the American Bankruptcy Institute Western Consumer Conference, Monday, January 20, 2014
ABI’s Second Annual Western Consumer Conference is a day-long program designed specifically for consumer bankruptcy practitioners. This year’s program will address the topics that consumer practitioners need most: current real estate problems, student loans, case law update, bankruptcy treatment of same-sex marriages and reaffirmations, including ethics. The program will close with a cocktail reception. The conference is a must-attend for every consumer bankruptcy practitioner!
In my opinion that every attorney should give to their community; whether it is providing a sounding board to someone in a nursing home, holding a child’s hand because their parent is unavailable or advising community groups on specific areas of law.
An attorney may have earned their license to practice law, but that does not mean they earned the right to be held in high regard. That comes with time and commitment to the legal profession.

When a debtor is in Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is not unusual that their monthly payments are made through a plan rather than directly to the mortgage lender. At the end of the year, the mortgage lender is likely to send Form 1098 (mortgage interest paid through the year) to the trustee, not the homeowner.
