  • Student Loans; The Unforgivable Sin

    I’m going to have a tough time taking about student loans in bankruptcy without getting ticked off.  I’ll keep my language under control, but this really bends me out of shape.

  • An Introduction to Bankruptcy for the Newbie

    I’m going to give you a quick primer on bankruptcy – what it is and what it can accomplish. Bankruptcy is federal law – those are the big daddies in Washington D.C. but it’s also state specific.

  • Full Speed Into the Future!

    I’m going to change up the blog format a bit and introduce videos. With audio and visual I can convey more information and get more personal. Years ago when I began teaching law online with Kaplan University, our seminars were “chat” based. Then I participated in the pilot program to introduce audio. ANGELS SANG!

  • What My Own Private Practice Means To Me!

    I thought I would tell you this to prove bankruptcy does not have to be all pain and tears. We’ll laugh a little, joke a little, and try to find the funny points in any bankruptcy situation when we meet. It helps. I am excited.  I am flat out Jazzed (with jazz hands and everything). My very own bankruptcy practice, for so long a ...
