Kentucky Bankruptcy Law

Counsel with Care

Judge Joe Lee Bankruptcy Institute

I just finished attending the Judge Joe Lee Bankruptcy Institute here in Lexington, Kentucky. It was great to celebrate Judge Lee’s 50th year as a bankruptcy judge and learn about the major impact one of our local judges has had in shaping bankruptcy law and practice. It was also reaffirming to hear a call to raise the bar in bankruptcy practice by our Chapter 13 trustee, Hon. Beverly Burden. She pointed out how specialized and potentially complicated Chapter 13 bankruptcy practice is and that one must be knowledgeable in the area before taking on these matters. I heartily agree and that is why I take such training opportunities and why I do extensive research in order to become more knowledgeable. The practice of law is much akin to the practice of medicine in that unforeseen events can arise in any case and having a solid knowledge base is essential to react appropriately.
