Bankruptcy is not a “quick fix” and can involve some very complicated areas of law. For the most part, federal law governs bankruptcy in the United States, although several states have peculiarities unique to those states.

Because bankruptcy law is mostly federal, the American Board of Certification was created to develop an examination and set of standards that can be used nationwide to measure an attorney‘s competence in bankruptcy law.

Some states have laws that prevent an attorney for advertising legal specialties. Ask if your attorney is certified by the American Board of Certification. If you are interested in obtaining the names of certified consumer and business bankruptcy attorneys in your area, or in obtaining a free directory of certified specialties, please contact the ABC.

For more information on bankruptcy, see the “Consumer Center” on the American Bankruptcy Institute's home page at goo.gl/Dshqvx.

5 Important Things to Know About The Used Car Lemon Law in LouisianaDriving your new (or new-to-you) car off the lot for the first time should be a moment of relief and excitement. You've made it through the shopping phase. You've gone through the fear and anxiety of negotiating the best deal you can get with the car dealership. You've signed the paperwork and finally, the car is yours. And nothing is more frustrating than dealing with repeated repairs and issues with your new car immediately after you get it home. But you can do something about what's called a "lemon" vehicle--even if you've bought a used car. Here are the five things to help you better understand the used car lemon law in Louisiana. 1. Determine if Your Car is a Lemon What is the Lemon Law? Some cars have issues after you get them home and drive them for a while. But if ongoing maintenance issues show up after you buy the car, how do you know if your car qualifies as a lemon? The first criteria come down to recurring repairs for the same issue and how long your car is out of service during repairs. If you try to fix an issue at least four times If your car is out of service for at least 45 days But with used cars, be sure and consider your timing. 2. Know Your Timeframe In Louisiana, the state's Lemon Law can apply to used cars within a certain amount of time from purchase and within the car's warranty or delivery. If you've tried to repair the car within one year of taking ownership of the car or it's still within the warranty period, there's a good chance you have a used car lemon. 3. Not All Cars Qualify Used car laws only apply to purchased cars, either for personal or commercial use. Vehicles under a lease do not qualify. The type of vehicle is also important. In addition to cars, trucks, and SUVs, the law includes personal watercraft and ATVs purchased after August 1999. However, the law does not include all motorcycles, RVs, and mobile homes. 4. Understand Redhibition In addition to the state's Lemon Law (or the Motor Vehicle Warranty Act), Louisiana has something known as redhibition. This additional protection allows a buyer to demand a full refund or a reduction in the purchase price if your car has an ongoing defect that existed at the time of sale. 5. Help is Available My used car dealership sold me a lemon. Now what? Navigating the details can be tricky. There's no need to figure it out on your own. If you think you have a lemon, get help from experienced lemon law attorneys. Used Car Lemon Laws Protect You You've done the hard work of buying a car.

There is no doubt that the accident rate increases during the holidays.

With more vehicles on the road, this increases the risk of a crash. It becomes even more dangerous when fatigued drivers are traveling long distances or if they are rushing to get somewhere.

It doesn’t help when weather conditions are poor, such as water-, ice- or snow-covered roads. Combine two or more of these factors, and you have the potential for a serious accident.
