The article was written by Ms. Cashman-Kramer with editorial contributions from Insolvency Law Committee member Jessica Simon.
In the article, Ms. Cashman-Kramer analyzes the case In re Evans, 618 B.R. 493 (Bankr. E.D. Mich.2020) where the debtor initially filed a chapter 13 case then voluntarily converted it to chapter 7 nine months later. She discusses how the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan determined that, after conversion of the case, the chapter 13 trustee was required to pay allowed attorneys’ fees of the debtor’s chapter 13 counsel from the funds that the chapter 13 trustee had on hand and then pay the balance of those funds to the debtor.
