In this week's episode of the Podcast, we interview attorney Loren Pincus, with the firm Yanchuck, Berman, Wadley, Zervos & Thomas. Loren focuses on Criminal Law and Personal Injury Law.
What should you do if you're involved in a car accident? In this week's episode, Loren answers this question, as well as other questions like Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Coverage, Bodily Injury Coverage, PIP Coverage, and Florida's recent law change that requires someone involved in a car accident to see a doctor within 10 days of the accident.
Bankruptcy Chapter 6.5 is a term of my creation and it references a situation where a homeowner files Chapter 13 bankruptcy to save their home through a mediated loan modification, but then dismisses the bankruptcy once the modification is completed - thus completing half of a Chapter 13 reorganization (13 divided by 2 equals 6.5).
Recently, I posted a blog article and related podcast that asked the question "Why is Bankruptcy so Odd?" In that article, I never discussed Chapter 6.5. You won't find Chapter 6.5 in any bankruptcy law book, code book, or rule book. You won't even find it amongst any slang around the courthouse (unless, of course, this podcast episode and its related blog go viral).
Today's episode covers when this might be a good strategy for someone in bankruptcy or foreclosure, and also covers why this strategy exists in the first place - it has to do mostly with the way payments are accepted and applied by the Chapter 13 Trustees here in Tampa, Florida.
We hope you enjoy this episode. If you have any questions, or if you have topics that you think would make a great future topic, please contact me at by email at Shawn@Yesnerlaw.com, or visit the Yesner Law website.
After a Thanksgiving Break, we're back!
In this week's episode, we interview Attorney Nick Ekonomides again, but this time on the issue of commercial foreclosures.
Commercial Foreclosures are different than residential foreclosures. Many of the defenses available in a residential situation are unavailable to the commercial defendants. In addition, other issues like assignment of rents and receivers often come up in commercial foreclosure litigation.
