- The discussion will include challenging service issues at Traverse hearings, negotiating discontinuances, and the ins-and-outs of vacating default judgments.
- Advocates will come away from the program with a better understanding of the life of a debt collection lawsuit, so as to more effectively represent clients dealing with unscrupulous collection attorneys.
- Finally, the presentation will cover issues related to the expansion of alternative dispute resolution in consumer collection actions, such as settlement conferences and arbitration of smaller claims.
