Excerpts from the CLE Program:
COLLECTING FROM THE DEAD
Writs of attachment—writs of execution—writs of possession—injunctions—collection of judgments, etc.
All of these are legal remedies.
If your practice includes civil litigation and you are seeking writs of attachment, writs of possession, receiverships, injunctions, foreclosing on collateral, if you are dealing with UCC liens, and if you deal with post-judgment collection issues such as judgment debtor examinations, post-judgment liens, post-judgment discovery, sheriff levies, etc., it is likely that you are a Remedies attorney. Securing a judgment and collecting a judgment are two of the most critical aspects of a lawsuit and without these remedies a win for your client may still be a hollow victory.
Why not give yourself that extra edge in these types of remedies and join the Remedies Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association?
The Remedies Section keeps you on top of all of the new rules, regulations, and laws affecting your practice through e-mail announcements, and provides newsletters and mailers detailing the Section's activities and new laws that affect this field of practice. The Remedies Section Web site also provides access to newsletter back issues, and the section List Service is a valuable e-mail-based forum just for remedies issues. Further, and more importantly, the Remedies Section also invites you to provide input on new laws being proposed that could directly affect your practice.
The Remedies Section has bi-monthly MCLE events in which you can meet with the leaders of today and tomorrow. The Remedies Section's panelists include sitting judges, and outstanding practitioners that will provide you with the insight you need to be successful in securing your client's judgment. There is no better forum to learn how to learn these invaluable skills!
Finally, the Remedies Section prides itself on giving its members the personal attention they need to successfully practice in their field. The Remedies Section also encourages its members to work together and be available to one another to transfer knowledge. You will find a pleasant camaraderie amongst Remedies Section members that makes Remedies Section events something to look forward to as a learning and networking experience. Remedies Section members frequently communicate by e-mail seeking and giving advice relevant to our daily practice needs.
