Recent Educational Programs

Even though I am already certified by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California as a Certified Legal Specialist in Bankruptcy Law, I am always learing more about bankruptcy law. Recent educational programs that I have take include the following:

March 2, 2007 American Bankruptcy Institute's Day Long "Battleground West" program at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

February 7, 2007 Beverly Hills Bar Association Bankruptcy Section Dinner Program on Chapter 11s for individuals.

Upcoming bankruptcy educational programs that I am registered for include the following:

March 26, 2007 Los Angeles Bankruptcy Forum Dinner Program "How to Not Get Sued and How to Protect Your Fees."

March 27, 2007 Beverly Hills Bar Association Bankruptcy Section Program "Lunch with the U.S. Trustee Peter Anderson."

May 18-20 California Bankrupcy Forum's Annual Conference in Yountville, Napa Valley, California.

These programs give me a chance to continue to learn more about bankruptcy law so that I can give the best advice to my clients. In addition, these programs allow me to constantly network with Bankruptcy Judges, Trustees, and other bankruptcy counsel.

L.A. Leggers 2007 L.A. Marathon Runner 2nd Place Male Award

On March 11, 2007, I received an award from the L.A. Leggers for having the the second fastest Legger finishing time at the 2007 LA Marathon. The L.A. Leggers is a marathon training club with over 1800 members. It has been rated as the top running club in Los Angeles by both LA Sports and Fitness Magazine and Competitor Magazine. This trophy is now sitting on my desk, and serves as an inspiration to me to keep getting faster and stronger. The first place male Legger at the 2007 LA Marathon was my friend Bruce Reisenfeld. The first place female Legger at the 2007 LA Marathon was my friend Katie Sobczak.
