Presented by Daniel Usiak

Daniel Usiak was licensed in Colorado and began his bankruptcy practice in May 2000. He was first licensed by the State Bar of Texas in 1980 and maintains his Texas license. His 1984 – 1999 detour from legal matters was to attend seminary and serve as a pastor in the United Methodist Church. Bankruptcy dominates his law practice, which also includes family law. In 2019 he conducted a successful mediation in a bankruptcy case. He enjoyed that experience so much that he recently completed the 40 Hour Mediation training through CBA-CLE and offers mediation services for bankruptcy and family law matters.

Jack Quinn's CLE menu

Due to recent changes, there will no longer be individual checks. Pre-orders and refunds must be done 3 business days in advance. Orders may be placed after 3 business days and food may be ordered at the event, though late orders will be served after pre-orders. "No-shows" will still be charged for their meal if not cancelled on time.

The lunch is held on the 2nd floor of Jack Quinn’s. We apologize for the inconvenience, but there is no elevator access, only stairs. Please let us know if you need accommodation.
