Bankruptcy By-pass Clinic:

We need attorney volunteers for this clinic which is a one (1) hour training (with CLE credit) followed by an one (1) hour advice clinic at the Legal Aid office in Norfolk. During the training, volunteer attorneys will be provided the necessary information on why an individual is collection proof and why the individual may not need to file for bankruptcy. Immediately after the training, volunteer attorneys will call individuals who have been scheduled for a telephone consultation. During the consultation, the attorney will provide advice on why the client is collection proof and what the client can do to stop creditors from calling.
