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.
Negotiating Attorney Fees
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.

The practice of law is a business, and an important part of that business is getting paid. Whether you are in private practice or working for legal services, getting paid for your efforts is a vital part of the practice. Often an afterthought, the award of fees is an integral part of consumer litigation. Whether you are new to the practice or a seasoned litigator, then maximizing your fee claims is valuable to you, your practice, and your firm or organization.
Arbitration is ubiquitous, and it has profoundly impacted the private practice of consumer protection law. While much has been said about the disadvantages of arbitration for consumers, many practitioners have had great success in arbitrating individual consumer protection claims. This three-part webinar boot camp will show participants how they can succeed in arbitration. The presenters, Ron Wilcox and Dan Blinn, will address all aspects of arbitrating consumer claims, from the initial selection of an arbitral forum right up to the time of a final award.
NACA hosted a webinar to update you on our continuing effort to challenge the IRS’ current determination that attorneys’ fees in consumer cases are taxable to your clients.
The recently passed federal tax law may have significant consequences for all consumer lawyers and their clients. All legal aid and private consumer lawyers need to understand the potential impact of this new tax law.
