Welcome to David Yen

posted by Bob Lawless

Credit Slips is pleased to welcome David Yen as a guest blogger this week. Yen is the bankruptcy supervisory attorney for the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago.Yen has worked for legal services programs and represented low-income clients in New York, Alabama, and Illinois. In 1992, he received an Equal Justice Award for his creativity in use of bankruptcy to help low-income clients. Put simply, the world needs more lawyers like David Yen.

The Credit Slips regulars came to know Yen through his always insightful posts on the Bankr-L listserv, and we knew he could add ideas to this site that we do not normally voice. Yen has an "in the trenches" perspective to what is happening with the bankruptcy law and with low-income consumers more generally. We are honored to have him join us and share his thoughts.


David is an invaluable resource on the NACBA listserv, and has provided me with assistance many times over the years. I look forward to reading his posts this week.

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois. Although Bankr-L is a free service, membership is limited only to persons with a professional connection to the bankruptcy field (e.g., lawyer, accountant, academic, judge). To request a subscription on Bankr-L, click here to visit the page for the list and then click on the link for "Subscribe." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless (rlawless@illinois.edu) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy. A link to a URL with a professional bio or other identifying information would be great.
