In this Special Report, host Laurence Colletti sits down with attorney Barbara Leach to discuss her presentation for the Florida Law Update 2016 at the Annual Florida Bar Convention. Barbara gives a little background on her Orlando-based law practice and explains that her emphasis for the seminar is on updates to bankruptcy law. She reveals that bankruptcy cases are trending downward and lists credit card debt, medical debt, and overwhelming loan debt as major reasons for financial hardship. Barbara also discusses observations on trends toward the dischargeability of student loan debt. She also shared her 12 month reviews on bankruptcies during her seminar to highlight changes in exemptions, dischargeability, and general information that directly impacts lawyers both as bankruptcy practitioners and debtors. The interview closes with an analysis of recent foreclosure trends and some tips for non-lawyers who want to stay knowledgeable on bankruptcy legislations that might directly affect them.
