This year, we have a new and exciting event that was just added this week — the “2013 Earle Hagen Inaugural Texas Hold’Em Tournament.” Perfect for anyone who would rather not brave the heat that day. Flyer attached.

All net proceeds from the Earle Hagen Memorial Golf & Tennis Tournament will go towards the support of Public Counsel’s Debtor Assistance Project (“DAP”).

As you know, Public Counsel’s DAP has helped thousands of individuals to navigate the bankruptcy system when they are no longer able to support their families while struggling under crushing debt loads, as well as assist innocent victims of fraud.

Individuals like Ajamu Azibo, who was the unfortunate victim of both identity theft and “bankruptcy hijacking.” Mr. Azibo visited the Los Angeles Bankruptcy Self-Help Desk for assistance to find out how a bankruptcy could be fraudulently filed in his name without his knowledge, and what he could do to fix the situation. He was confused, and also concerned about what effect the filing might have on his job. Fortunately, Public Counsel was there to help. Public Counsel successfully represented him in an expungement motion, and his case was featured on public radio station 89.3, KPCC-FM. KPCC reporter Ruxandra Guidi interviewed Mr. Azibo, and his story aired on KPCC. Mr. Azibo is only one example of a client Public Counsel’s DAP is able to assist due to your continued support.

Public Counsel’s DAP provides greatly needed pro bono legal services to over 4,000 individuals and families every year by:

-providing counsel and advise at the Los Angeles Self Help Desk;
-guiding pro se litigants in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process at monthly Chapter 7 clinics;
-advising pro se litigants regarding their rights at monthly reaffirmation hearings in the Los Angeles and Woodland Hills divisions;
-representing consumer debtors in Chapter 7 pro bono cases; and
-defending consumers against non-meritorious non-dischargeability complaints.
