Attention Attorneys Serving as Debtor's Counsel in Chapter 13 Cases

Thursday, February 25, 2021

The Memorandum Regarding Allowance of Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses for Professionals under 11 U.S.C. Section 330(a) (Fee Memorandum) was modified effective January 1, 2021, to include increased "no look" fees for cases filed on or after January 1, 2021, and increased presumptive hourly rates for services performed on or after January 1, 2021.

To be considered for the increased Fee Memorandum rates, you must certify your attendance at 2020 bankruptcy legal education by completing and submitting Exhibit 6 to the Local Bankruptcy Rules to  prior to the Ch 13 confirmation hearing at which "no look" fees are approved, or prior to applying for an order approving the higher presumptive hourly rate.   Because of the virtual nature of education in 2020, the court is no longer able to obtain attendance information from the educational organization.

Thank you for your cooperation.
