I was at NACBA’s 2011 Members-Only workshop last October in Colorado Springs (held at the beautiful Broadmoor resort). We had a booth in the exhibitor hall right across from EZ-Filing Bankruptcy Software’s exhibit. Although I introduced myself to the EZ-Filing guys, we did not have an ‘in-depth’ conversation, so I’m not certain from whom I heard the rumor that EZ-Filing was going to be sold, just that I heard it around that time.
I’ve seen complaints on the EZ-Filing Yahoo Group for the past months about ‘program instability’ and the pleas to EZ-Filing that product reliability be restored from bankruptcy attorneys who have used program for years. It seemed to me this was more proof that the attention back at EZ-Filing headquarters must be on closing a deal and not on the product.
So, given the rumor I had heard about a possible sale, I was not surprised when attorney Jay Fleischman wrote a few days ago on his Legal Practice Pro blog that he had “been informed” that EZ-Filing had “become part of the CINgroup of companies.” I have not been able to find an official press release that confirms this but, given Mr. Fleischman’s stature in the legal community, I have no doubt that someone ‘in the know’ gave him this information. You’ll want to read Mr. Fleischman’s post about EZ-Filing and CIN.
