WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT
THE ACADEMY

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.

Jeannie's professional career began in 1980 when she joined attorney Louis Barry Mack in his family law/civil litigation practice in Palm Springs, California. In 1982 Mr. Mack's firm funded Jeannie's paralegal studies and in 1984 she transitioned to her own office with her own case load. In 1995, Mr. Mack was appointed to the bench the practice was closed. Jeannie was at that time recruited by a client real estate broker and for the next 9 years she administered all contracts for Lyle Commercial, a Palm Springs commercial real estate brokerage, and spearheaded the firm's marketing department. In 2004, Mr. Mack made the decision to return to private practice and Jeannie was invited to and did rejoin the firm, once again assuming a hugely responsible case load at The Mack Law Offices in Palm Desert, California.

In late 2007 Jeannie moved to San Diego and made the "quality of life" decision to establish a contract bankruptcy paralegal business from her home office.

With her focus established, Jeannie sought out all Consumer Bankruptcy education and training sources available and soon found herself assisting a client base of more

than 10 bankruptcy attorneys with successful bankruptcy filings across the nation. With services ranging from client intake to Trustee Supporting Documents, amendments and even some motion work, she knows her cases from beginning to end. Jeannie's active involvement in the Consumer Bankruptcy support process and continued pursuit of an active and aggressive Continuing Legal Education agenda establishes her as professional among her peers.
