Attorney Todd A. Warshof’s introduction to Bankruptcy Law
Attorney Warshof began his legal career in bankruptcy roughly six months prior to the major overhaul of the bankruptcy laws in 2005 when Congress enacted the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention & Consumer Protection Act, otherwise known as BAPCPA, which went into effect as of October 17, 2005. Due to fears that these new bankruptcy laws would thereafter significantly hinder the average person’s ability to seek relief under bankruptcy law; there were extremely large numbers of cases being filed in the months leading up to the change in law. Mr. Warshof was able to secure an attorney position at what was at the time, San Diego’s largest and busiest consumer bankruptcy law firm, thereafter having to hit the ground running in order to absorb as much of the law as quickly as possible. These circumstances provided Mr. Warshof with an excellent opportunity to learn the practice and to obtain a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the newly enacted laws, which is a unique perspective that would be lost with attorneys beginning their practice in bankruptcy only after the enactment of BAPCPA.
Bankruptcy practice, the early years.
Attorney Warshof spent his very first six months in the practice of law at the very forefront of one of the most active areas of the law at the time and with absolutely no time to waste. He was just one in a small handful of attorneys handling San Diego’s largest caseload of Chapter 7 cases during the most active period of time in bankruptcy law in years. Between just two other attorneys, Attorney Warshof and his fellow associates handled between 200 to 400 Chapter 7 cases PER MONTH for the three or four months leading up to the Change in Bankruptcy laws.
Having exposure to such a large and diverse caseload, and handling cases that gave rise to what was likely a larger array of legal issues than some attorneys may see in their entire careers; Attorney Warshof was provided the very rare opportunity to set, very early on in his career, an extremely wide-reaching and thorough foundation in bankruptcy knowledge and know-how that he would continue to build upon throughout the years, eventually possessing what is arguably unmatched hands-on, practical legal experience, knowledge, and know-how in consumer bankruptcy matters.
As soon as October 17, 2005 appeared, bankruptcy filings suddenly came to a screeching hault. Nonetheless; Mr. Warshof and his fellow associates continued to handle the over 1200 active bankruptcy cases that had just previously been filed, including one particular day of note; where the Firm represented every single debtor on a full day’s 341(a) Meeting of Creditors calendar; Mr. Warshof therefore having to attend and represent debtors at roughly 85 back-to-back 341(a) meetings; non-stop from 8am to 5pm. There are many bankruptcy attorneys who won’t find themselves appearing at as many such meetings in an entire year.
The living and evolving nature of Bankruptcy Law
One of the true pleasures of practicing in bankruptcy law specifically and especially immediately subsequent to a major, wide-reaching change in the laws, is that you are provided what is in essence, a blank canvas for advocating particular interpretations of the law. The overall state of the law in these types of situations is that it is very much alive, fluid, and constantly evolving and this provides almost endless opportunities for lawyers to involve themselves far beyond the surface, it allows them to actively mold the law in support of and for the benefit of their clients, both current and in the future.
For another six months after BAPCPA went into effect, Attorney Warshof practiced for this same firm during which time he handled what was likely one of the largest ongoing caseloads governed by the newly enacted laws. This not only provided him with an immediate and significant level of experience and knowledge regarding how the Courts were handling all the new issues and situations that resulted as a result of the change in laws, but arguably even more importantly, it provided him with ample opportunities to test the waters himself with new ideas and legal interpretations, arguments, and strategies; providing him not only confidence early on in his abilities to persuade the Bankruptcy Trustee’s and the Court to adopt his legal positions, but fueling the continuation and refining of this type of innovative and aggressive approach to legal representation, an approach that would allow him to represent the interests of his clients in ways far exceeding what most attorneys were doing at the time.
