Appearance Before Bankruptcy Court By A Non-Lawyer.

It is not the unauthorized practice of law for non-lawyers to appear before a bankruptcy court and request the abandonment of vehicles. The representation may not, however, present any legal argument on the abandonment of the vehicle nor can the non-lawyer prepare and submit an order or document to be signed by the bankruptcy judge or trustee.
