bankruptcy advice

Los Angeles Bankruptcy Lawyer Leon Bayer  has a new book. As part of its “Inside The Minds” series, Aspatore Books has published Trends in Consumer Bankruptcy Filings: Leading Lawyers on Understanding the Current Bankruptcy Landscape, Navigating the Filing Process, and Educating Clients.

I wrote a chapter in this new book about the key strategies for managing twenty-first-century bankruptcy cases. The book is available directly from the publisher here and on the web at sites like Amazon.com.

Aspatore Books, the publisher, is a Thomson Reuters business and exclusively publishes books for executives and lawyers, collaborating with the world’s most respected companies and law firms. According to Aspatore Books–

“Trends in Consumer Bankruptcy Filings provides an authoritative, insider’s perspective on advising clients in today’s bankruptcy environment. Featuring experienced attorneys from around the country, this book guides the reader through the recent developments in the consumer bankruptcy arena, including how the current economy and the continuing effects of BAPCPA are impacting clients and cases.”

Los Angeles Bankruptcy Lawyer Has New Book — Why it is Needed

For my clients and friends that don’t recognize the term “BAPCPA”, above, it is the acronym for the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. These amendments to the Bankruptcy laws have presented many challenges for consumer debtors, bankruptcy lawyers and trustees. One of the changes in the law was recently reviewed by the United States Supreme Court in a new opinion that interprets the effects of the “Means Test” on the budget expenses allowed for Chapter 13 debtors. That case is Ransom v. FIA Card Services.

We can expect this area of law to continue to challenge debtors seeking to legitimately restructure or discharge their debts. Bankruptcy will remain a necessary step for many consumers and one that should only be taken with expert counsel. The new bankruptcy laws have been a challenge to consumers and to every Los Angeles Bankruptcy lawyer. 

I am pleased to be an author for Aspatore Books and to share my professional views and over 30 years of experience with lawyers and business executives around the country. At Bayer, Wishman & Leotta, we continue to specialize in filing and managing successful bankruptcy cases for consumer debtors in the Los Angeles area.
