Update on Self-Help Desk in Woodland Hills

Email from Barbara Sanchez:

Good morning, wonderful volunteers,

I hope that you and your loved ones are happy, safe, and well.

Self-Help services are still being offered remotely. There is no date set for reopening in Woodland Hills, but we are not likely to open before mid-September. We have been able to help debtors file for Chapter 7 online, through electronic Self-Representation (eSR), sharing screens in MS Teams. It’s time-consuming, but it works well, and debtors appreciate the support.

Neighborhood Legal Services has hired a wonderful new employee, Daniel Calzadillas-Rodriguez. Daniel has been helping with calls to Spanish-speaking debtors, as well as translating bankruptcy materials. He is warm and supportive with debtors, yet professional, and has excellent computer and administrative skills. I look forward to introducing him to you when we reopen.

I have been asked to forward information about potential job opportunities. Please share this information with anyone who might be interested.

Public Counsel is also looking for help:

That’s all the news from Self-Help for now. I truly appreciate all of your efforts on behalf of pro se debtors and creditors, and I am thankful for all you have done to help me learn about bankruptcy. I look forward to seeing you when we reopen the Self-Help Desk.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Best regards,

Barbara
