The Office of the Standing Chapter 13 Trustee, David Ruskin, is pleased to announce a series of FREE workshops for people in the Chapter 13 process.  Each class will be offered several times during the year. The classes are held in the Conference Center at our office.

Space is limited and the workshops are open only to those who are currently in Chapter 13 with cases assigned to David Ruskin.

These workshops are not mandatory.  However, they provide very valuable information.  In addition, there are tips and tools that are useful once you are finished with your Chapter 13 Plan.

Note that these workshops DO NOT count as the second debtor education course required for a Chapter 13 Discharge.

Please click on the links below for more information and to sign up for the workshops.  Click HERE for a copy of our latest flyer.
