Ever since I started practicing bankruptcy law over twenty years ago, I’ve relied on one law book more than any other: Consumer Bankruptcy Law and Practice .
Published by the National Consumer Law Center , it is now in its Eighth Edition. It is my favorite bankruptcy handbook and I often refer to it as the bankruptcy bible.
This is the definitive consumer manual and the must-have book for any attorney who practices bankruptcy. It is now takes up two volumes for a total of well over thirteen hundred pages. There are excellent summaries of almost every possible bankruptcy issue, together with case citations, sample pleadings, a full copy of the Bankruptcy Code and Rules and more. It’s cost of $180 is well-worth it. Also included is a CD-Rom.
The only downside for Long Island bankruptcy attorneys is that it does not focus on any New York issues or exemptions.
The publisher, the National Consumer law Center, is a not-for-profit operation that emphasizes education and advocacy to help and protect consumer rights. You cannot go wrong with this book.
