Thinking about
getting into bankruptcy law?

Then this is your book!

A major rewrite and expansion of the pre-Reform editions of King's popular practice guides for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, as well as all relevant changes imposed by the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention & Consumer Protection Act of 2005 ("BAPCPA").

In one volume . . . the law of exemptions, property of the estate, exceptions to discharge, handling liens, and the automatic stay. In-depth discussion of the practical, hands-on processing of a chapter 7 & chapter 13 files in the office. Many checklists and forms to assist in the evaluation, filing and post-petition administration of the case. Common procedural problems, glitches and hidden issues. Ethical traps and how to avoid them. Learn from the experience of others!

Setting up the office. Books and computer programs. Using paralegals. Keeping track of time and expenses. Dealing with clients. Setting and collecting fees. Mandatory e-filing. Marketing your practice for greater profitability.

Handling secured claims and difficult discharge issues. Common tasks, including non-purchase money and judgment lien avoidance, reaffirmations, filing claims or complaints, attacking tax liens, objecting to claims, handling executory contracts, conversion to or from chapter 13, and defending a credit card fraud adversary action.

And while your at it, pick up the recent Bankruptcy Code, as well. Order the combo - the book + CD + Code. Scroll down to order.

NOTE: This book combines and updates three of Morgan King's books; King's Chapter 7 Law & Practice, King's Chapter 13 Law and Practice, and relevant parts from King's Guide to Practice Under The Reform Act of 2005.

Useful to the experienced practitioner to keep current in this area of law, the book is also an excellent introductory guide for beginners and lawyers with modest experience handling consumer bankruptcy cases under the Reform Act of 2005. Do not confuse it with the one for more experienced attorneys, dealing primarily with changes enacted by the Reform Act of 2005, King's Guide to Practice Under The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005. For that book click on link at right.

 

WHY SHOULD I GET THIS BOOK?

" ... what made me decide to go with King's Fundamentals were two things: (1) "The Library" discounted package offering; and (2) "PART 5 Preparing The Office To Handle Consumer Bankruptcy Cases" listed in the online table of contents.

As a solo attorney with NO bankruptcy experience, I am looking for nuts and bolts help in getting started and Part 5 looks to be what I need. The [other book] materials in contrast did not seem to have a counterpart to your book's Part 5."

- Purchaser A.M.F., Chicago, IL Jan. 4 2009

I want to thank you for the Fundamentals treatise and CD...it is exactly what I needed and was looking for. I'm an attorney returning to the practice after 9 yrs and your materials have made my re-entry much more informative and anxiety-easing... Thank you for your time and again, thank you for your treatises!

- Ralph Cummings, Radford VA

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT
KING'S GUIDE TO PRACTICE UNDER THE
BANKRUPTCY ABUSE PREVENTION &
CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT OF 2005
"I've utilized several different bankruptcy texts, treatises, etc., and none compare to yours, at least to satisfy my own comfort level.  Thanks for putting such a quality product on the market." - Steven R. Zweigart, Flemingsburg, Kentucky  July 7 2008

"I just submitted an online order.  Anything you can do to get it to me as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated. I do not feel comfortable starting to practice under the new law w/out reading your Guide, et al first. Thanks for all you're doing for bk practitioners" - Mark F. Viencek, Rochester, NY

"Your Guide has been referred to as "My Bible" many times.   The first guide went everywhere with me for almost a year -- except home to my parents for Christmas. " - Barbara Janzen, Leawood, KS

"Your books have been a godsend." - Jordan Rappaport, Boca Tatan, FL.

"I don't want to fall behind in the new world of BAPCPA and, accordingly, go to the "master" to get my information which is always concise and well written. I, and many other practitioners, sincerely appreciate your publications and efforts." - Gerald H. Davis, Bankruptcy Trustee, Palm Springs, CA

"I really appreciate the great information you provide for us bankruptcy attorneys. As a solo, I don't think I would make it without your resources. Thank you!" - Alexis Crow, Charlottesville, VA

"I will forward you the email that was circulated on our listserve that said we were committing malpractice if we were filing bankruptcies without your guides!" - Teresa Kidd, Shawnee, KS

"I can say that I have seen no other text on the new bankruptcy law that remotely comes close to yours in usability for bankruptcy practitioners." - Gary R. Fraley, Sacramento, CA

"Kings Guide to BAPCPA has proven itself to be the most valuable resource in the office. Although I have taken 4 CLE courses to prep. for 10/17/05 and its aftermath,the book anticipated many of the rulings now coming down." - William Wolfson, Flemington, NJ

"Your materials are essential to the practice of bankruptcy law under BAPCPA." - Robert W. Raley, Bossier City, LA

"I recommend your book to everyone. It is amazing what you have put in it!" - John Bates, New Philadelphia, OH

"The Guide is remarkably well done and comprehensive.". - George Arnold, Evanston, WY

"I received it today and began reading immediately. It is a wonderful manual and wish I had the foresight to have ordered it earlier." David Zaffina, Hazel Park, MI

"The King expertise has saved many a bankruptcy attorney from going nuts. I handle only small business and tax cases have 25 plus years experience and the King guide is something I could not do without. I would endorse Morgan's books anytime. Thank you for all the hard work in giving us something practical and well researched. When the law changed and you came out with the Reform Guide, I knew I had to have it. It helped me feel competent getting back to work" - Marguerite Kirk Fort Worth,TX Board Certified Business Bankruptcy American Board Bankruptcy Certification, Board Certified consumer Bankruptcy Texas since 1987.

"I have been a practicing consumer bankruptcy lawyer for almost 20 years.  When the 2005 BAPCPA law was enacted, I had almost come to the conclusion that my bankruptcy practice was over - the text of the new law is confusing, contradictory and often internally inconsistent.  Morgan King's Guide to the 2005 BAPCPA is the main reason I am still in practice. Mr. King's Guide offers a step by step, practical roadmap for practice under the new laws.  I refer to it constantly.  I cannot see how any consumer bankruptcy law practitioner could possibly navigate the minefield of post-BAPCPA practice without this Guide.  It contains checklists, spreadsheets, client handouts and substantive comment.  I frequently teach continuing education seminars about bankruptcy to other lawyers and my first recommendation is to purchase Mr. King's Guide." - Jonathan Ginsberg, Atlanta, GA."

"King's Manual is a must. I read it cover to cover and should probably do it again." - David Shaev, N.Y., N.Y.

"Get Morgan's book on BARF. I wouldn't practice without it." - Milton D. Jones, Morrow, GA.

"The book really has saved me." - Ron Satija, Austin, TX

"If you could, please overnight them!  I have heard rave reviews from the folks on the NACBA list and I really could use all the help I can get with this new freaking law.. I have a few post-BARF cases I am starting to work on and I would 'prefer' not to screw up on my first filings." - Shannon Foster, West Chester, PA

"I have yet to see anyone but you offer a good guide on how to gear up for the new law. I bought yours and thought it was very good, and have probably sold at least 5-10 via my endorsements and recommendations." - James Cossitt, Kalispell, MT

"I was euphoric on how well the material is presented." - Wayne Bodow, Syracuse, N.Y.

"You're getting unanimously wonderful feedback on your book!" - Jed Berliner, Springfield, MA

"The book removes the fear . . . you've truly written a map. There's little left to chance. With the checklists and outlines, it's pretty difficult to miss something important and that provides a needed level of comfort." - Adam Schachter, Houston, TX

"Morgan King (not-related and I don't get a commission) has put together an extremely useful guide to practice under the new law. It includes all kinds of wonderful checklists, sample agreements for services, sample handouts and other materials. And pretty much walks you through everything you need to do to be ready to practice under the new law.  It costs a little less than $200 I think and is worth every penny of it. I commend it to your attention." - Jerry Harper, Topeka, KS

"The "Guide to Practice" under BARF is a terrific book, very helpful, lots of checklists and suggestions, flow charts, etc." - D. Jacobs, Chico Ca.

"Many thanks. Excellent book. Much more useful than any of the other BAPCPA manuals." - George C. Heck, Old Lyme, CT

"The binder has been extremely informative in describing the drastic changes that will soon occur. I am glad that we purchased this binder." - N. Siegel, Santa Ana, CA

"This book is an essential tool for all consumer bankruptcy lawyers." - O. Max Gardner, Shelby, NC

"The new laws seemed intimidating before. After reading your guide, I am not too troubled by them." - S. Lanin, NY NY

"... text seems very comprehensive and helpful." M. Gunnar, Hilliard, OH

"I've found your guide very informative, and only apologize for not letting you know sooner. The guide will be instrumental in helping me prepare for the changes coming." - S. Flood, Muskogee, OK

"I definitely like the stepwise approach to the manual. It makes for a nice progression and it is easy to stay oriented to the material and makes it easy to understand how and where existing practice will change." G. Heck, New London, Connecticut

"Excellent." H. Goldstein, Sarasota, FL

"... very easy to read and follow." D. Patrick, Lynnwood, WA

"I received Morgan's book this afternoon in a reasonable time after ordering. The flow charts, checklists, and disclosure statements alone will save my small office a lot of (nonbillable) time as we finalize preparations to deal with the new law. I strongly recommend it to you for your consideration. I have no financial interest in the book." Roger Cotner, Grand Haven, MI

"I will definitely buy your books as soon as they are available. I have bought some of your books before and I love them!" - Modesto Lopez, Orlando, Florida

"Excellent job!" - Mark Westbrooks, Phoenix, AZ

"I recently attended a panel put on by the chapter 7 trustees. Your presentation of the median income and means tests were much better than what was given to the Trustees." - Anon. (for obvious reasons)

"The Guide to Practice Under the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 has been a tremendous resource.  I am a new attorney who has been doing a self-tutorial on how to practice law in the bankruptcy field.  Your guide has helped me a great deal." - James Kennedy, Laconia, NH.
