Voir Dire article Chap 13_Page_1Voir Dire article Chap 13_Page_2I had the privilege of being asked to write a couple of articles for the Mississippi Association for Justice Voir Dire Magazine’s Summer 2012 edition.  This is a regular publication of the MAJ and is devoted to presenting timely, informative, and practical information to its membership of attorneys.  I make the most of every opportunity to educate attorneys of all areas of practice on the fundamentals of bankruptcy. For this edition I focused on Chapter 13 and several of the areas where this financial tool can assist clients that many attorneys may not be aware of if bankruptcy is not their focus.  I also wrote an article on the morality of a bankruptcy.  Most people don’t realize that the idea for bankruptcy law was based on the Old Testament sabbatical and Jubilee years.  Our forefathers recognized the significance of forgiveness of debt and how cruel old world practices were of having debtor prisons, etc.  No one comes to me for a consultation on bankruptcy with a desire to “get out of” paying a debt.  They have experienced a tragedy (illness, job loss, pay cut, etc) that has crippled their ability to provide for their self and their families and need assistance to make a fresh start.

If you have questions about bankruptcy and have not been able to fully find the answers posted, please contact me.  I’ll be happy to provide those answers to you and it would also help me to know what additional information I can post that would be helpful to people researching bankruptcy related issues.

Frank_spoke in Philadelphia MS Today I had the privilege of being one of the guest speakers at the MS Family Law Update seminar in Jackson, Mississippi.  I educated the attending family law attorneys on the many ways that bankruptcy can effect the divorce, child support, and custody matters that they routinely address.  My  presentation covered methods the attorneys need to use to properly protect their clients settlement and support claims when a spouse files for bankruptcy and as well, how bankruptcy could in turn protect the spouse that owes the support and other obligations.  I emphasized that timing is critical and discussed the possible benefits to filing bankruptcy before the divorce proceedings.

I had the priviledge of being invited by Kim Wade to come for an interview on his show Aug 26, 2011.  We discussed what has happened and is happening in the mortgage industry today and the multiple areas of  fraud being perpetrated on the American people – but more importantly we discussed how to fight back! If you’re not familiar with Kim Wade’s show – you’re missing a lot of great information.   I look forward to being back on the show to discuss this topic that both Kim and I are very passionate about soon!  Check out Kim’s blog as well – http://www.kimwadenoexcuses.com/index.htm
