Why would a bankruptcy attorney hire a Virtual Bankruptcy Assistant?

  • Utilizing VBAs, debtor bankruptcy attorneys can increase their currently hourly fee by 400%.
  • Because VBAs work from their home office with fewer interruptions, they usually have more time to provide attorneys with a higher level of detail that saves law firms thousands of dollars as well as mistakes that grow into huge problems!
  • VBAs aide in the reduction of workload for paralegals and other law office personnel working onsite for the attorney.
  • Unlike a salaried employee, if the attorney is not happy with the work a VBA provides, they do not pay the invoice. This will immediately reduce problems for law firms who seem to have continuous internal employee issues.
  • VBAs are paid like any other vendor. They never share fees and work under the sole discretion of the attorney just like the office staff.
  • Save the high cost of investing into software programs. VBAs have already made the investment and can export files in PDF format for cross-platform review.
  • plus much, much, more.

4. Bankruptcy Petition Case Training Collection


This CD collection contains ACTUAL bankruptcy cases that you can research and follow on PACER.  Each case file contains (1) client intake forms; (2) attorney cover sheet; (3) notes and emails pertaining to relevant points within the case; (4) the actual software file so you can follow the progression from beginning to end; (5) pay advices; (6) credit counseling certificates; and much more.

The ten (10) cases included in this collection will train you in a variety of skills as you will see below:

Case No. 1
This case is a very simple Chapter 7.  Joshua is a young man with little income. The only problem with this petition is a couple of small assets that you will encounter on Schedule B.  Therefore, this case is perfect for the beginner to practice with.

Case No. 2
This is another excellent case for beginners to practice with.  It is a standard Chapter 7 with few assets and very few problem situations.

Case No. 3
This is an excellent case to help introduce you to fraud.  After I had done the initial input on this petition I discovered the client was hiding several assets and the attorney asked me to overlook items that I needed clarification on.  Due to these problems I stopped working on the case immediately.  Later I found that the California Bar Association had filed charges against the attorney but I do not know the outcome.

Case No. 4
This case will introduce you to how IRS taxes are treated in a Chapter 7 case for a client filing under federal exemptions.  You also will learn the reason this case has not been filed yet; the client owes the IRS almost a quarter of a million dollars.  In this case, the attorney is negotiating with the IRS before the petition is filed.

Case No. 5
This case is currently delayed due to the excessive amount of inventory the debtor has in his business.  This case may be filed by the time you purchase this collection so check the Eastern District of New York on PACER to follow the case.  This is an excellent case to show you how unexempt equity can cause devastating problems for debtors.

Case No. 6
This is a typical business case that starts off easy but turns into a catastrophe.  This debtor thought he could quickly file a Chapter 7 and dismiss his debts.  But he continually refused to provide the attorney with verifiable income records for his business.  Once we started digging around and asking questions, he decided to not file his case and never returned to the attorney’s office.

Case No. 7
This is a standard Chapter 7 bankruptcy case but with one twist: the motor vehicle could be eligible for a strip down so that the debtor can save $7,000. Since this is a Chapter 7 I was unable to propose a cram down inside the petition.  If this would have been a Chapter 13, there would have been no problem.  However, in a Chapter 7, the process is treated a little differently and this case will teach you the skill so you may be able to save clients thousands of dollars on future petitions that you do.

Case No. 8
This is a Chapter 7 that was originally drafted by non-experienced legal assistants working for a bankruptcy attorney.  You will find in my notes the many different problems occurred with this petition and you will be able to document the changes throughout the petition process.  This case will demonstrate exactly how poor quality work at law firms can cost you a great deal of time.  Working with your attorneys to develop a smooth routine where work flows at maximum efficiency require making mistakes and making adjustments.  However, once you have achieved the right mix; both the attorney and VBA will enjoy healthy incomes.

Case No. 9
This case will point out the specific errors the attorney made so that you can apply the same reasoning to future bankruptcy cases that you work on.

Case No. 10
Compare both files included in this case and cross-reference with my notes to understand how this Chapter 13 was put together.  This case will also teach you a great deal about Chapter 13s which will advance your skills to the next level.
