In conjunction with the National Bankruptcy College, you can receive intensive bankruptcy training and skill development. Upon completion of the certification program, you would receive a bankruptcy certification. National Bankruptcy College also provides an attorney network website offering the public free bankruptcy information regarding bankruptcy basics. You could also be eligible to participate in the National Bankruptcy College Attorney Referral Network, which would help you obtain additional clients. A bankruptcy "boot camp" is also available.

Education coupled with experience will help you build and hone your skills. Attorneys will get maximum exposure to clients; attend court hearings; prosecute and defend motions; represent clients at Section 341 meeting of creditors; and draft bankruptcy schedules, statements, plans, and other pleadings.

Attorneys with little to no bankruptcy experience are invited to apply to the Schaller Law Firm because extensive training is available through National Bankruptcy College. Now, get your career on the fast-track in this high-growth bankruptcy market with the potential to earn $50,000+ in legal fees in your first 12 months.

But, you must be an attorney who is independent, hard-working, eager to learn, and highly motivated to build a long-term, highly-profitable career --- not just looking to get a job.

Bankruptcy law is a booming field with vast potential for profit and advancement. Bankruptcy profits are triggered by record-setting foreclosures, imploding adjustable rate mortgages, the mortgage loan crisis, and concerns about an economic recession. The booming bankruptcy market is supercharged by the statistics relating to foreclosures, job loss, credit card debts, uninsured health expenses, etc.

If you possess a heartfelt desire to build a respected legal career, along with the vision and drive to succeed, then take the first step and submit your information below to The Schaller Law Firm.

Bankruptcy Training is Key!

Most young lawyers graduate from law school unprepared for the day-to-day practice of law. Because of the financial difficulties experienced by many law firms in this troubled economy, many firms have reportedly stopped training the newly minted lawyers. But how are these young attorneys suppose to learn the substantive law and procedural rules?

At the Schaller Law Firm, we believe that training is key to success. Extensive training is offered via the Bankruptcy Certification Program at National Bankruptcy College, where you could master the core fundamentals of consumer bankruptcy practice. You should benefit from an engaging learning experience that teaches the fundamental substantive laws as well as the practical procedural rules required of a bankruptcy attorney. Moreover, your mastery of cutting edge bankruptcy related software will give you practical knowledge of the bankruptcy case preparation and prosecution process. Upon graduation, you should be able to "hit the ground running" to profit, pride, and success.
