A Summary of Bankruptcy Law

Dear Mr. Hayes,
This is Eileen Keusseyan.  I appeared before you for a mediation in an adversarial proceeding.  I found out about your publication during my appearance.
Well, I have read "A Summary of Bankruptcy Law" and I now use it almost on a daily basis as a summary guide.  Thank you for putting so much information together in such a concise and resourceful publication.
Thank you.
Sincerely,  Eileen Keusseyan

Judge Keith Lundin New Book on Chapter 13 Due out Shortly

I plugged Judge Keith Lundin's Chapter 13 book in the introduction to my book, A Summary of Bankruptcy Law.  A fellow consumer bankruptcy attorney asked me how to get the book so I went to the source myself.  I'm happy to help Judge Lundin get the word out.  His treatise has a staggering amount of information on chapter 13 and cites to every case ever I think.  Here is the email I sent to Judge Lundin and his response.

Judge Lundin,
   I plugged your chapter 13 book in my book, A Summary of
Bankruptcy Law.  How do people go about buying the book?  I attached the
pdf of my book.  The plug is in the introduction.  I have met you a few
times at the Norton Institutes in Las Vegas, an exceptionally enjoyable
Jon Hayes

“The Rutter Group book on Bankruptcy by Judges Alan Ahart and Leslie Tchaikovsky, and retired Judge Kathleen March is a great reference and resource. It is also geared to the world of California bankruptcy. In the chapter 13 arena, Judge Keith Lundin‟s book, Chapter 13, 3rd.Ed, is a must for your bookshelf. And by the way, if you ever get a chance to listen to Judge Lundin, don’t miss the opportunity. He is an engaging and funny populist who has sat on the bankruptcy court in Nashville, Tennessee for many years. Every bankruptcy attorney in the Ninth Circuit should have a copy of Judge Randall Newsome‟s Research Notebook – print it out and keep it by your desk. You can get it online by doing a google search.”

Judge Lundin's response:

Jon --  thanks so much for the nice plug and for asking.  The place to go
for now is <>.  In the next month or so the 4th Edition
will be uploaded to <> and on-line subscriptions with lots of
other stuff will be available there.  Hope to see you at a seminar soon.
take care.  kml

My new Book: A Summary of Bankruptcy Law

My new book:  A Summary of Bankruptcy Law is now available on Amazon.  You can access it here

This is the description on amazon:

This is a short summary of bankruptcy and how it works. It summarizes the three main chapters, chapter 7, 13 and 11. Bankruptcy code sections are referenced throughout the book as are the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure. Footnotes are generally Supreme Court cases or 9th Circuit cases. Where state law is relevant, California law is cited. The book is designed for law students, new attorneys to bankruptcy and anyone with a general interest in the subject.  It is 228 pages.   

My book on Bankruptcy Jurisprudence from the Supreme Court can be accessed here. 

Let me know what you think.  JH
