California Bankruptcy Legal Resources

Bankruptcy Bar Associations and Legal Organizations

National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) - The NACBA is a national professional organization comprised of attorneys who practice bankruptcy law representing consumer debtors. The organization provides resources and education to lawyers while also advocating for legislative changes to the Bankruptcy Code. The National Association for Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys offers many benefits to its members seeking to improve their practice by filing amicus briefs to assist them.

Specialty Certifications in Bankruptcy Law

Bankruptcy Law - Bankruptcy Law is under the jurisdiction of the federal government, and bankruptcy matters are heard in federal court. There are both national and state-specific certifications. In California, the board certification for bankruptcy law is awarded by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization (CBLS). The bankruptcy attorney must demonstrate substantial involvement in the practice of bankruptcy law to earn the board-certified specialist distinction.
Consumer Bankruptcy Law - The American Board of Certification (ABC) certifies lawyers as specialists in the area of consumer bankruptcy law. To earn certification, the attorney must apply and pass all requirements, including an examination. The attorney must demonstrate substantial involvement in representing individual debtors in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings. Board-certified consumer bankruptcy lawyers are considered trusted experts in the field.

California Government and Court Resources

California Attorney General

California Attorney General - California's Office of the Attorney General was created in 1850. The Attorney General oversees lawyers, officers, investigators, and law enforcement agencies. The responsibilities and duties are detailed in California's Constitution and state government codes. Also, the Officer is the head of the Department of Justice. Under the state Constitution, some of the responsibilities include safeguarding the public from criminals, support criminal investigations, and much more. One of the missions of the Attorney General's Office is to enforce and apply all of California's laws fairly and impartially.

California Judicial Branch

California Judicial Branch - In 1926, the Judicial Branch was created by the constitutional amendment. The power to govern is divided into the executive, legislative and judicial branches. Additionally, the power of the judicial branch is given to the Supreme Court, Courts of Appeals, and superior courts. The judicial branch interprets the laws of the State of California, protects the rights of individuals, "provides for the orderly settlement of disputes between parties in controversy," and determines the guilt or innocence of those accused of violating the laws.

California State Legislature

California State Legislature - The California State Assembly is the governing body responsible for making laws and overseeing the state's policies. It is a bicameral institution, comprising the State Assembly, which has 80 members serving two-year terms, and the State Senate, consisting of 40 members with four-year terms. The Legislature convenes to propose, debate, and pass legislation on a wide range of issues, including education, healthcare, transportation, and the state budget. Its primary duties involve crafting and passing laws that shape the governance and well-being of California.

Supreme Court of California

Supreme Court of California - California's Supreme Court is the state's highest court, consisting of one chief justice and six associate justices. The chief justice and the associate justices are appointed or nominated by the Governor. California's Constitution gives the Supreme Court of California jurisdiction in all cases imposing capital punishment within the state. It also has the authority to review decisions by the California Courts of Appeals and by the Public Utilities Commission (Cal. Const., art. VI, ยง 11). The court chooses cases that address legal matters that are significant and relevant in the state.
