Work-Life Balance Conversation

Thursday, January 14, 2021, 2:15pm EST

As we enter this new year and are looking to reset, NACA is offering a moderated conversation for NACA women on work-life balance. Moderated by Carla Sanchez-Adams, Christine Anderson Ferraris, and SaraEllen Hutchison, we plan to structure the conversation around the following themes:

  • What are your biggest work-life balance challenges?
  • How has the Covid-19 pandemic impacted those challenges?
  • What tools are you using or planning to use to cope with those challenges?

What to Ask When You Don't Know: 30(b)(6) Depositions of Debt Buyers

The deposition of a debt collector is critical to an FDCPA case. It is difficult, if not impossible, to survive summary judgment without it, as most debt collectors refuse to provide any meaningful discovery otherwise. They also typically hide behind frivolous affirmative defenses and ludicrous denials of obvious truths. At best, they just plead ignorance to everything. Testimony, under oath, by their corporate representative can be an excellent way to identify the difference between a shotgun defense/denial and one that requires more work to overcome.

Fixing the Attorney Tax Fee Problem: Practical, Litigation, and Legislative Strategies

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.
