- Save the Date for the 2014 Annual Seminar. September 18-19 in Destin, FL.
- Mortgage Modification Program. FLNB's mortgage modification mediation program for chapter 13 debtors who own residential property, cannot afford their current mortgage payments, but can afford to pay a meaningful portion is now LIVE. The new program allows parties to discuss mortgage modification in an informal setting as well as to provide a “fast track” for both the debtors and the lenders. We emulated the Loan Modification Mediation Program being offered by the Orange County Bar and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division, which has been successfully organizing mediations for a number of years. The program will be streamlined to reduce costs, save considerable time, and make it easier for the parties to facilitate a loan modification. The mediations are for negotiation purposes only and neither the debtors nor the lenders are required to enter into any agreement.

On Wednesday, May 14, 2014, from 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. in Tallahassee, local attorneys and students from the FSU College of Law will join together to provide free legal consultation to nonprofit organizations in the Big Bend area.
