SilvermanAcampora partner Rob Ansell was recently quoted in an article, published in the Bloomberg BNA Banking Daily Bulletin, titled New York Approves Sweeping Rules For Consumer Debt Collection Litigation.
The article discusses new rules approved by New York’s Office of Court Administration that make it more difficult for creditors to obtain default judgments against consumers. The new rules, which take effect on October 1, 2014, are aimed to “protect the rights of all New Yorkers, including some of our most vulnerable citizens,” Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman said in a statement.

On Tuesday, September 23rd, SilvermanAcampora will celebrate its 15-year anniversary with an evening joined by the firm’s friends and supporters. Founded on a preeminent bankruptcy and litigation practice in 1999, the Firm has recently seen a substantial expansion in both its size and practice areas. With fifteen years in the business, SilvermanAcampora has remained true to its founding spirit of connecting with clients, creating innovative representation, and upholding its strong character, the firm’s cornerstone.
The anniversary celebration will take place at the Ferrari of Long Island dealership in Plainview, NY. The night will feature remarks from Partners-in-Charge Anthony Acampora and Ken Silverman and the official launch of the firm’s new and improved website. A portion of the evening will also be dedicated to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association in honor of the Firm’s recently passed partner, friend, and mentor, Ed Flint.
“We are incredibly proud of the firm’s achievements, and as we turn to the future we wanted to mark the occasion by thanking all of our friends, old and new, who have contributed so much to our success,” said Anthony Acampora. “We pride ourselves on our involvement in the local community. That we were able to celebrate this milestone among the individuals responsible for where we are today is a wonderful feeling and a testament to the firm’s work and reputation.”
