Electronic signatures now available in BankruptcyPRO!

Our latest BankruptcyPRO update includes the ability to request a client’s electronic signature for bankruptcy documents to be filed with the courts.

This new feature integrates with SignNow, one of the big three e-signature providers, and utilizes Jubilee, our cloud-based bankruptcy platform to send the electronic signature requests.

This new feature is great news for attorneys, as many courts now accept electronic signatures. It also means clients no longer have to drive to your office just to sign documents.

Benefits of using BankruptcyPRO’s e-sign feature

  • Quickly and efficiently send an electronic request of final documents for debtors signature
  • Track the status of the requests from within the case
  • Receive an emailed receipt once signing is complete
  • Provide an extra layer of authentication by protecting the signing with a password you create.

To use this new feature, BankruptcyPRO users will need to register for a Jubilee account and enter their Jubilee credentials into BankruptcyPRO. The E-Signature Credits can be purchased through Jubilee for $3/request in bundles of 10.

For more information, please call us at (210) 561-5300 or email us at support@legal-pro.com.

BankruptcyPRO: Stay updated.

BankruptcyPRO has seen some changes over the last year. There have been Official Form changes, with more to come soon in regard to the new Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019. We’ll be ready when it takes effect. Be on the lookout for an update.

We have also added some local Chapter 13 Plans and updated others.

We have adjusted the Median Income numbers and allowances as mandated by the U.S. Trustee for the Means Test.

As more and more courts go to NextGen for electronic filing, we’ve adjusted the program to deal with that new wrinkle.

In the course of your practice, you need to be able to present items a certain way. We do what we can to make that easier for you within the confines of the Official Forms. It all goes under the heading: “Nothing is ever simple”.

We seriously appreciate your forbearance while we make the changes you need and your diligence in asking for the changes. Our goal is to make your practice work more smoothly regarding the forms, the math, and the filing. We’re happy to give you the time to take care of your clients.

Thanks for being a BankruptcyPRO user! We will continue to support you in the ever-evolving bankruptcy world.

Fun times in San Juan

We will be attending the NACBA Fall workshop in Puerto Rico this December. We hope to see some of you there. No doubt a trip like this is not cheap, but don’t forget to live a little while you’re working your tail off (and get some CE credit too).

BK Packet

Don’t forget, all Jubilee customers receive 3 BK Packet credits ($30 value) for free each month! Take advantage of that offer and don’t miss out. Anyone considering giving BK Packet a try will also receive a one time offer of 3 free credits! Just sign up using the promo code PRO2019.

Certificate of Service

CertificateofService.com is the debtor’s premiere mailing and noticing service. Just like you wouldn’t prepare a petition without using the amazing Bankruptcy Pro program, you would not want to spend your valuable time stuffing envelopes. With just a few simple clicks of your mouse, your Amended Chapter 13 plan, Motion to Incur Credit, and a thousand other documents can be served on the entire Master Mailing Matrix from the bankruptcy court, or your own mailing list that you create!

Practitioners who recognize the value of their time will recognize the value of CertificateofService.com. Stuffing your own envelopes is not the best use of you or your staff’s time. Doing you own mailings is a revenue drain on your bottom line whereas using a third party noticing provider (like CertificateofService.com) is a revenue enhancer. Not only can you get reimbursed for the expenses of mailing on your fee apps, you are able to use the time you would otherwise have used stuffing envelopes, for your own benefit. Whether you want to leave the office early, or get another client through the door before the day is out, the best way to create time is to outsource your mailing needs to CertificateofService.com.

Try it today! It is embedded right in BankruptcyPRO and Jubilee as a value added feature. LegalPRO and CertificateofService.com are always watching out for you and the efficiencies that make your office go.

How Can We [NOT] Help You?

We know there’s a startup out there sending lots of emails to attorneys (SPAM?) and really trying to get your attention.  We can’t help but wonder, however, at their own website’s offering of support: “Standard Support is available M-F 9-5 ET.  Please allow 24-48 hours for a reply.

If you have to wait 24 to 48 hours for a response during normal business hours, then what good is it?  And their fees are considerably more than ours!  We once had a two-hour response, but it was on a Sunday night – and we’ll work to do better at that!

We’ve been providing live immediate phone support for over 20 years and have added after-hours support via our online forum.  Making sure you get the help you need when you need it is extremely important to us and is one of the things you pay for with your standard subscription to BankruptcyPRO, Jubilee, or I-Got-Notices.  We don’t charge extra for “premium support” just so you can actually – maybe — get some help and talk to someone.
