More About the Author

I enjoy translating complex financial and political topics critical to people's everyday life in language that can be easily understood. I do this through my non fiction "how to" books for the Dummies series and the Idiot's Guides. I have more than 25 finance and political books on the market. Prior to writing books, I've worked as a daily newspaper reporter, a magazine editor, a press secretary for a U.S. Congressman and a fund raiser for former President Jimmy Carter, so he can continue his international work through The Carter Center. I earned my MBA at Emory University's Goizueta Business School and my BA at Rutgers University.

Format: Paperback
In the next edition disclose these four significant student loan debtor discharge success cases (I am sure there are many more):

1. Michael Eric HEDLUND v. The Educational Resources Institute Inc. et al., case number 12-35258, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (May 22, 2013);

2. In re Robert Jacob SCOTT and Sarah Jane Scott, Debtors. Robert Jacob Scott and Sarah Jane Scott, Plaintiffs v. U.S. Department of Education; Educap, Inc., The Education Resources Institute (TERI), et. al, Defendants. Bankruptcy No. 07-14317. Adversary No. 07-01367. United States Bankruptcy Court, W.D. Washington, at Seattle. September 25, 2009;

3. Christian D. MENDOZA, Chapter 7, Debtor. Christian D. Mendoza, Plaintiff,
Educational Credit Management Corporation; Hemar Insurance Corporation of America, Defendants. Case No.-01-53238-MM. Adversary No. 01-5283. United States Bankruptcy Court, N.D. California. June 20, 2007; and

4. In re Lorna Kaye NYS, Debtor, Educational Credit Management Corporation, Appellant, v. Lorna Kaye Nys, Appellee. No. 04-16007. United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit. Argued and Submitted February 15, 2006. Filed April 26, 2006. 446 F.3d 938.

The Hedlund 2013 case is huge, it clearly expands the law in favor of student loan debtors who reside in the nine western states. Both Hedlund and Scott were in their 30s, healthy and employed and they successfully discharged most of their student loan debt in bankruptcy.

This book is great for those not only looking to file BK but want to know more about it. My only problem with the book was there was some repetitivness that was not neccessary. I am a BK Counselor and I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in BK...however if you are looking to file get an attorney and this book DO NOT file on your own.
