HELPED ME NAVIGATE THIS MINEFIELD

Though I am an experienced attorney I lacked confidence in this area of the law. The course has been outstanding and indispensable to help me navigate this minefield and build that confidence. The hands-on war stories are priceless life experience that provide great guidance.

Michael Levine, San Diego, CA

WE WERE LOST

My firm, consisting of myself and my paralegal, decided to do bankruptcies when it became clear that there was a pressing need that was not being served in our community. 

We bought the software and read the books, but then we got our first clients and we went to fill out the petitions and we were lost. 

Your class saved the day! We filed our first case ever today, a fairly complicated 13, and we did so with confidence thanks to the knowledge we gained from the Bankruptcy Academy.  Your classes took the complicated mass of bankruptcy law and broke it down into manageable chunks.

 Thank you very much,

 Justin Kallal, Jackson, WY

 CONTENT RICH, EASY TO UNDERSTAND

Every piece of information has been content rich, easy to understand and has allowed me to take the information and apply it to the bankruptcy petitions I am working on right now. 

Understanding the law behind the Bankruptcy Code rules and regulations make a huge difference when preparing petitions. Having the outlines and the practical examples, which take yo u through each schedule step-by-step,  has been invaluable.  

I'm stressed because there is lot's I have yet to learn but the course materials have made my life easier.   I really want to get to the hands-on videos.

Jeannie, you did a GREAT JOB putting the course material together with Attorney King.  I am so proud of you!  I have recommended this course to several other VBA's I have spoken with.

A LOT OF TRAINING!

Compared to the various seminars / webinars offered by other organizations, the price is a bargain for the large number of hours of training and the additional resources.

I LIKE YOUR COURSES!

I like your courses so much I'm thinking of signing up all my company's staff for the group class.

VERY HELPFUL

I found the first course very helpful. Although I am not the attorney, I am to be taking on a larger role of managing the BK division at the law firm and due to the number of clients I see on a daily basis, this is something that I find helpful.

Rob, with Sobti Law Group, Beaumont, Orange, and Cornoa, CA

This is a wonderful course!

Arthur W. Chettle

EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS

The course has exceeded my expectations so far!!! I already told another attorney about the course.

Yordi Fraser
Stamford, CT

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!

I am extremely pleased with the content of the course and the way you have presented it. The detailed analysis that you provided in the Discharging Taxes course was absolutely outstanding!! The visual aids were well constructed and very helpful. Next year I will be teaching a course on " Tax Aspects of Bankruptcy" and I intend to use your course and materials for 20 to 25% of this new course that I will be teaching here at the UMKC law school.

I intend to spread the word about the Bankruptcy Academy. I find the content to be invaluable---it is as must for those who intend to practice in this area.

Professor Ed Hood, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law

Consumer bankruptcy lawyers all know Morgan King and his Bankruptcy Academy. For years, Morgan has honed his knowledge of discharging taxes in bankruptcy - and his studies have paid off. Morgan's not only one of the smartest tax/bankruptcy guys out there, but he's an incredible teacher. If you've heard him speak at the NACBA conferences you already know what I'm talking about.

Bankruptcy attorney Jay Fleischman, Brooklyn, NY

This is a must program! In fact, it was so good I'm seeing it again!

Bankruptcy attorney Antonio Villeda, McAllen,Texas

Both Amy and I thoroughly enjoyed your seminar.  It's the only one I've found that actually allows me to learn something in my chosen field.

Bankruptcy attorneys N. D., Deininger & Wingfield, P.A., Little Rock, Arkansas

I thought I knew the subject. But when I took the Academy I realized how superficial my understanding had been. I left with a new confidence and a new competence I could not have gotten anywhere else.

Bankruptcy attorney Marlow Preston, Austin, Texas

I appreciate the invaluable information you have given other attorneys. As a small (2 person office) it is very difficult to venture outside your comfort zone of area of practice. I cannot thank you enough.

Bankruptcy attorney Bob Ellis, Columbus Ohio

It was great! I took both factual information and a real sense of confidence from the week. If you plan any seminars regarding other topics, I will be there.

Bankruptcy attorney Brian Zeiden, Los Angeles, California

This course is a MUST for consumer bankruptcy practitioners. Morgan and his expert speakers and the materials presented, provide excellent guidance and hands-on practical tips and advice that are immediately useful.

Ellen Stone, Managing Attorney, Law Offices of John Ventura, Brownsville, Texas

I have not seen anyone that provides more information and expertise than you. I am always very impressed with the extent of work, energy and expertise you bring to your seminars.

Bankruptcy attorney Marguerite Kirk, Bedford, TX

. . . the course was excellent and would take it again and bring my associate.  Of course we would prefer to have it in the East, but I did enjoy San Francisco and the restaurant that you recommended.

Bankruptcy attorney Donald G. Koch, New York, NY.

I really enjoyed the program. I learned some new things and it reinforced what I had already learned from your web-site. One thing I'm excited about is that it opened up a prospective market for me that I had not yet recognized. I plan to market my services as a consultant to tax and bankruptcy attorneys in my state. Reading transcripts can be quite complicated for the inexperienced and preparing delinquent returns may sometimes be needed. With your book as a reference I will feel comfortable and conversant when speaking to other professionals.

Thanks for doing what you do. There's a tremendous need for it. I know of several atty's in my area who don't know (enough) about tax discharge. More EA's who practice representation need this knowledge as well. Our clients aren't effectively served if we don't present all their options....and know a bad attorney when we see one.

Enrolled Agent Lisa Sexton, Carlsbad NM

I just wanted to let you know that I thought your BK academy was terrific and very informative.

Bankruptcy attorney Martin A. Berger, Hilo, HI

I love your programs. Thanks for supporting the Debtors' bar over the years.

Bankruptcy attorney Steve Berken, Denver, CO

I've enjoyed being in your seminars in the past and have used the valuable knowledge you've imparted from them both in my everyday work and in the books I've contributed ...
