TBBBA encourages all members to get involved in Pro Bono! There are many ways to give back, find the one that is a good fit for you.
Pro Se/Pro Bono Clinic
The TBBBA Pro Se/Pro Bono Assistance Clinic is now open—virtually! If you are a pro se party in need of assistance with a bankruptcy matter, please contact the Clinic at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. You will receive an email with a link to a Google form that will allow you to begin the process of scheduling an appointment with the Clinic. Please know that no attorney-client relationship is formed by completing the Google form or emailing the Clinic.
The Clinic can assist with an array of bankruptcy matters, including the following
– Reaffirmation Agreements
– Chapter 13 Plans
– Student Loans
– Mortgage Modifications
– Objections to Claim
– Creditor’s Rights/Proof of Claim
– General Bankruptcy Issues (e.g., Schedules or completion of other required forms or disclosures)
Unfortunately, the Clinic is unable to assist with foreclosure defense, appeals, or chapter 11 matters at this time.
Please contact John Landkammer at email@example.com with any general, non-legal questions concerning the Clinic or to inquire regarding volunteer opportunities.
