NY CLE presentation on the foreclosure crisis and the practice of law (Video)

Continuing Legal Education (CLE): "The effects of the foreclosure crisis on the practice of law: How to avoid the pitfalls"

On March 10, 2011, Hallmark Abstract Service was honored to participate in a CLE program that was produced jointly by the Westchester Women's Bar Association and the Puerto Rican Bar Association.

Attended by approximately 50 attorney's, the event included an introduction by Acting New York Secretary of State Ruth Colon and a discussion of attorney ethics by Maria Matos, Executive Secretary to the Office of Character & Fitness, New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department, and Andral Brotman, former Deputy Chief Counsel to the New York State Appellate Division, First Department's Departmental Disciplinary Committee.

I was joined in discussing the foreclosure crisis by Kathleen Daly of Wilson, Elser, Moskowitz Edelman and Dicker LLP, and Dale Robyn Siegel of the Circle Mortgage Group.

The event was organized through the hard work of Stephanie Melowskey of NorthEast Community Bank and Jacqueline Hattar of Wilson, Elser.

In the coming days I am going to provide an overview of the topics that I covered including MERS, securitizations and potential ramifications on the title industry.
