(I originally posted this in 2009 - amazingly, in 2016, it's stll true)

    You keep hearing on the news that the economy is improving, but I don't really see it.  Cooking the books at the Treasury and keeping foreclosed homes off the market to manipulate prices does not a recovery make.  While I have no reason to believe that any individual viewing this needs to file bankruptcy right now, I am posting this information because the need is so great, and because a significant number of people would benefit from filing bankruptcy, yet are convinced by others to not do it.  But even if you aren't one of those people, it is very likely that you know someone who is. If you don't need this information, please feel free to pass my website address or weblogs along to someone who might.

    As time goes by, the mistakes and issues brought up by the 2005  law will be clarified and bankruptcy attorneys will get a better feel for how these new laws will affect different people in different situations. I will try to keep this web site updated.  Almost every time the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on bankruptcy issues the past few years, it has been unfortunate for debtors.  But don't give up.  I know I won't.

    We'll get through this together.

                                                                                                        Very truly yours,

                                                                                                        Marvin Wolf
