Attorneys who practice bankruptcy law in Brooklyn or who regularly get their continuing legal education at the Brooklyn Bar Association are already familiar with David Doyaga and Gregory Messer.

The pair host regular bankruptcy CLEs and banter throughout them like a pair of seasoned radio hosts. Now they’re bringing that show online, as the Brooklyn Bar Association will host the pair on a live streamed CLE at 12:30 on Tuesday, May 26.

Titled “Bankruptcy: Best Practices,” the due will be joined by Justice Elizabeth Stong, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge in the Eastern District of New York, who will moderate the two-hour CLE, as well as attorneys Rachel Blumenfeld and Sidney Cherubin.

As usual, the format for their CLE will be somewhat informal, but it will be in depth and especially helpful to attorneys who come with questions. Doyaga and Messer will spend time explaining the best practices for working in Bankruptcy Court, but also will explain how to avoid the mistakes they’ve seen others make.

The CLE, like all Brooklyn Bar Association CLEs for the month of May, will be free to members. It is hosted by the BBA’s Bankruptcy Committee and the General Practice Section, chaired by Justice Robin Garson.

The CLE is expected to be the first in what the Brooklyn Bar Association is referring to as its “lunch and learn” series, which consists of CLEs in the afternoon. It’s a way for the BBA to reach attorneys who commute to Brooklyn or who simply might not be available after work hours.

The BBA will host another “lunch and learn” CLE at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3 on advanced directives hosted by president-elect Anthony Lamberti.
