June 22, 2021 | USBC EDNY Pro Bono Initiative Recruitment Program

TMA Long Island hosted a complimentary virtual recruitment and informational program for attorneys interested in participating in the new USBC EDNY Pro Bono panel primarily focused on serving Long Island on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 at 5:00PM EST.  

Attorneys selected to be on the panel will have the opportunity to provide assistance on a pro bono basis in various bankruptcy matters before the USBC EDNY (Brooklyn and Central Islip, with a focus on Central Islip), including chapter 13 cases, adversary proceedings, and loss mitigation.

Attorneys who attended this program on June 22nd had an opportunity to hear from the Bankruptcy Judges and certain local legal service providers about the opportunities and benefits of pro bono service in this area, and to learn more about the application process.

This new USBC EDNY Pro Bono panel offers attorneys the opportunity to provide debtors or individual creditors, with limited income and resources, and who cannot afford to retain private counsel, with pro bono pro bono assistance to in various contested bankruptcy matters. Contested matters are typically referred by the bankruptcy judges of this district, with a particular focus on Central Islip, for pro bono representation. Volunteer attorneys’ participation on the Panel does not obligate attorneys to accept a pro bono assignment. However, attorneys who accept pro bono matters meet with the clients to fully discuss the merits of the case, and advise the clients on the possibility of resolving the cases through various legal options (settlement, mediation, etc.), or by litigating the matters in court. Seasoned bankruptcy practitioners and litigators alike have found these matters to be rewarding and accessible. The Panel is also an excellent opportunity for junior attorneys to gain significant court experience and allow attorneys of all levels to have a meaningful impact on a pro se debtors and creditors the ability to achieve a “fresh start.”
