Need a volunteer to defend a bankruptcy debtor in a non-dischargeability action

I have agreed to represent a debtor – pro bono – who has been sued to have the debt declared non-dischargeable.  The guy was in an altercation and was arrested.  The “victim’s” finger was broken.  My guy has his side of the story.  The “victim” has demanded $5 million.

Anyway I took the case as part of the UWLA Bankruptcy Litigation Clinic.  This is a great case for a student or new atty to get involved in.  You will work side by side with me.  You will be “second chair” at trial.  The legal issues are not complex but it will likely go to trial downtown – several months from now.  In the meantime there will be discovery, depositions etc.  If you have taken a bankruptcy course, but are not yet an attorney, you can be certified by the bankruptcy court and actually argue some portion of the case.

If you are interested send me an email at jhayes@rhmfirm.com.

You must be prepared to spend a few hours a week on the case for the next several months.  There will likely be weeks of no work.  This will go to trial.    Let me know.
