NACA’s second online Spring Training combines a subject matter-focused conference with the resource opportunities of a large conference. Due to circumstances with COVID-19, we are holding this conference online again this year. This event is a member-only opportunity.
One of NACA's top priorities continues to be changing the tax law so that consumer law attorneys’ fees are not taxable to your clients. We are always exploring new and practical ways to avoid this problem and continue our efforts to find a permanent solution through litigation and/or legislation. To that end, NACA has recently commissioned a survey about the public’s understanding of consumer protection law and the ability of consumers to obtain affordable legal help.
Finding the right clients is a challenge for all law firms and can be exceedingly difficult for consumer rights lawyers, because potential clients don’t often know they have a case or that fee shifting may allow representation to be obtained at no cost. During the COVID era, this is even more challenging—as we are relying almost entirely on digital communication to reach people. In this webinar, you will learn new ways to reach potential clients by using low cost internet and media strategies.
What You Will Learn
- Develop your practice and still have a consistent cash flow
- How to value your cases and services

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act created several loan and grant programs to support small businesses, including law firms and 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Many of our members were fortunate to receive funds under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program. The PPP program was designed as a forgivable loan. Join us to learn what steps you need to take to get as much of your PPP loan forgiven as possible.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act designated $350 billion for small businesses and 501(c)(3) nonprofits to keep their workers employed during our current pandemic. Businesses with fewer than 500 employees, including solo practitioners, are eligible for these low-cost loans that can be converted to grants. Learn about this program and why your firm or organization should apply.
Firms across the nation are very suddenly learning how to work from home to protect the safety of attorneys and staff and to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Many consumer protection law firms have already been working remotely and determined that it can be more cost effective, efficient, productive, and enjoyable than operating out of a traditional office. Our firm has operated virtually for more than seven years, and this webinar will share our perspective and offer tips to firms that are suddenly forced to work from home now or in the coming days.
Besides purchasing a home, buying a car is the biggest consumer purchase that most individuals will make in their lifetime.
