What It Means To Be a LWM Law Trial Lawyer

When talking with South Florida personal injury attorneys, it’s important to understand that not all law firms are created equal.

Because they want to avoid going to trial.

When May a Debtor in Possession (DIP) Sell or Lease Property of the Estate? a Dualistic Approach Requiring Business Justification and Balancing of the Interests of the Debtor, Creditors, and Equity Ho
in response to a $140 million judgment Hulk Hogan, known legally as Terrence Bollea, obtained against, inter alia, Gawker Media, LLC (“Gawker”) and its founder and erstwhile CEO Nicholas G.A. Denton in connection with Mr. Bollea’s allegations that Gawker damaged him by publicizing a video depicting Mr. Bollea and the wife of his friend engaged in sexual intercourse, Mr. Denton filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy case seeking to discharge his personal obligations arising from the judgment and other debts. See In re Nicholas G.A. Denton, Case No. 16-12239 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.).
Equitable Subordination
bankruptcy courts are special courts. They are neither Article III courts (Northern Pipeline Constr. Co. v. Marathon Pipe Line Co., 458 U.S. 50 (1982)) nor their adjuncts (Stern v. Marshall, 564 U.S. 462 (2011)), but nonetheless have inherent powers (Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. 1188, 1194, 571 U.S. __ (2014)) and—pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 105—certain equitable powers. This means that they have broad powers to order equitable remedies—such as specific performance—where no adequate remedy at law exists, to the extent not inconsistent with any other provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. See Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. at 1194, 571 U.S. at __. This is the backdrop against which inequitable conduct by a creditor may lead to subordination of its claim in a bankruptcy proceeding under established, codified, equitable principles. Subordination means that a claim, by judicial decree, is lowered, in whole or part, in priority relative to its ordinary position in respect of one or more other claims.
How to Avoid Liens on Your House in Bankruptcy
this article discusses Minnesota law relating to the removal (“discharge”) of judgments following a judgment debtor’s bankruptcy.
Chapter 13 Advantages: The Art of the (Chapter 13) Plan
done properly, chapter 13 provides certain above-median wage earners—and others with special considerations, often relating to a mortgage—with debt relief.
Taxability of Discharged Debts: Advantages and Consequences of Bankruptcy
the Internal Revenue Code ("I.R.C." or the "Code") broadly defines gross income as "all income from whatever source derived, including . . . [i]ncome from discharge of indebtedness" I.R.C. § 61(a)(12). Although the I.R.C. does not define "discharge," this has long been understood to include the taxpayer's release from a monetary obligation such as debt forgiveness or by way of a discharge in a bankruptcy case.
Redeeming Personal Property in a Chapter 7 Case
many debtors—and a few attorneys—are unaware that the Bankruptcy Code provides a way for debtors in a chapter 7 case to "redeem tangible personal property intended primarily for personal, family, or household use, from a lien securing a dischargeable consumer debt, if such property is exempted [by the debtor] . . . or has been abandoned . . . [by the trustee], by paying the holder of such lien the amount of the allowed secured claim of such holder that is secured by such lien in full at the time of redemption." 11 U.S.C. § 722. There is quite a bit to unpack here, but at bottom, almost any non-commercial physical personal property subject to a security interest can be exempted and redeemed in a chapter 7 case.
Roommates, Bankruptcy, & the Means Test
debtors are often pleasantly surprised to learn that, in Minnesota, roommates generally count toward their household size for purposes of the means test, permitting certain debtors who would otherwise fail the means test, and thus not qualify for a chapter 7 case (permitting almost immediate discharge of all debts, not otherwise dischargeable, without any repayment required, as with a chapter 13 case), to qualify.
A Word About the Effect of Prior Bankruptcy Filings
bankruptcy counsel frequently field questions from debtors who’ve previously filed bankruptcy. Sometimes this involves a prior case completed years ago, but more often it involves a debtor who has filed a recent case that was dismissed—often in connection with a chapter 13 case by reason of failure to confirm a plan or to make plan payments.
How a Good Lawyer Saves You Money (Despite Nominally Higher Fees)
choosing the right attorney for your chapter 7 or chapter 13 case can ultimately save you money, even by comparison to filing pro se (without counsel). In many cases, this means selecting the right chapter under which to file your case. There are certain advantages uniquely associated with chapter 7 or chapter 13 (the most common) proceedings.
Who is Responsible for My Injuries on a Cruise Ship?
a victim of a cruise ship injury caused by negligence may be eligible to file a claim against the cruise company. However, not all damages qualify as recoverable in the courtroom if a judge determines the cruise line is not responsible. Therefore, your California personal injury lawyer must prove that staff or conditions negligently caused your accident.
Property Owner Responsibility for Premises Liability in California
premises liability is a legal practice of personal injury law. It typically involves a person injured by unsafe conditions on another’s property. As such, courts may base a personal injury case on the contributory negligence of the property owner. Winning a premises liability case against an owner is challenging. It is a type of situation that involves proving that the property owner was irresponsible concerning ownership or maintenance of the property. Speaking with a California premises liability attorney can help you devise specific strategies related to your case.

Does Los Angeles Traffic Result in More Aggressive Drivers?
los Angeles and the rest of Southern California are well-known for traffic problems. In fact, a 2018 article published by Business Insider ranked L.A. as the worst city in the country for traffic congestion, with drivers spending an average of 102 hours stuck in traffic every year. With that said, as a resident, you probably do not need statistics to tell you that driving in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas can be extremely frustrating.
Riverside Transit Rear End Bus Accident Impacts Multiple Drivers
