About the Editor

I have really enjoyed reading your abstracts. I have learned so much and I have gained more confidence in my work since becoming a subscriber. I am grateful that [another subscriber] told me about you.

Jennifer M. Lancaster, Esq.
Benton, AR

Thanks for your service, Robin. I have been practicing bankruptcy law for the past 35 years and your CBAR is one of the few indispensable assets to my practice.

Neal Weill, Esq.
Mason, OH

Most of the days I am dealing with routine individual consumer bankruptcy cases. Twice this week I have used the website, once to get material for a seminar presentation and the other to review the cases on non-dischargeability. Both times I remarked to myself that this was one of the best investments I have made. Office expenses run rampant, but every time I use CBAR I realize what a valuable and inexpensive resource it is for my practice, to have everything collected in one place.

Frank H. Coxwell, Esq.
Jackson, MS

CBAR has been beyond value to my practice.

Milton Jones, Esq.
Morrow, GA

Your work has been the most tremendous resource for me in the practice of bankruptcy law. You have saved me countless hours of research by providing the "threads that unravel the blanket." It is almost malpractice (in my opinion) for a practitioner to not be a member of CBAR.

Thanks for all you do and I hope you continue to do it for a long, long time.

Rusty Sparks, Esq.
Little Rock, AR

Thank you so much for the service you provide. I can't begin to tell you how valuable it is to me--and how much I appreciate your excellent work.

Ben Currence, Esq.
St. Thomas, VI

Your product is a fantastic and eminently useful reference. It is the first place I look when an issue arises. And you are personally very kind and helpful with your time and vast knowledge.

You have both saved and made me money by making me a much better informed consumer bankruptcy attorney in general and quicker to the "red meat" of any specific issue/problem that arises.

Edward Magauran, Esq.
Honolulu, HI

I want to let you know that CBAR is the best legal research tool I have found. In fact I have found CBAR must more useful than my Westlaw subscription. As soon as my contractual obligations end I will be greatly reducing my subscription there.

Martin Holmes, Esq.
North Muskegon, MI

It is a great resource. And, quite frankly, a mandatory resource for any consumer bankruptcy lawyer who is serious about their practice. Your case summaries are excellent and your special features make the service the best of the best.

Max Gardner, Esq.
Shelby, NC

You put out an awesome product with great customer service.

Eric Wilson, Esq.
Tuscaloosa, AL

After six years of working at a bankruptcy firm, I ventured to open my own bankruptcy law office, and the VERY FIRST investment that I made was to purchase my subscription to Robin Miller's CBAR Bankruptcy Abstracts! This is an INVALUABLE and ESSENTIAL tool for all bankruptcy attorneys, as it simplifies quick research and understanding of CURRENT case law! The format is FANTASTIC, and I usually refer to CBAR Abstracts as my starting point in my legal research, before turning to other legal search engines. I hope Robin Miller will always continue providing this fantastic service for such an amazing value!

Nikki Hashemi, Esq.
Sherman Oaks, CA

What I like best about the Bankruptcy Abstracts are the topical compilations on newly-evolving areas of BAPCPA. The website is extremely helpful and well organized. More than once I found exactly what I was looking for along with the in-depth analysis that gave me the edge I needed. Thank you, Robin

Barbara L. Franklin, Esq.
Honoka'a, HI

CBAR has been an invaluable resource in my practice. Kudos to Robin for her hard work pulling together law that runs from coast to coast and presenting it in an insightful and thorough manner. I recommend it to all bankruptcy professionals who insist on staying on top of their game.

Thanks, Robin!

David L. Holbrook, Attorney at Law
Lilburn, GA

Robin, Your abstracts are accurate, very organized, easily accessible, and sold at an incredibly low price. I was a BNA subscriber for years until your excellent product convinced me to switch--I now have a much better abstracting service for a lot less money! Please keep up the good work.

Robert J. Haeger, Attorney & Counselor at Law
Gaithersburg, MD

Robin provides the latest case information in this fast-moving field of law. I rely on it immensely.

Margaret Herdeck, Esq.
Pueblo, CO

I thought I was an overachiever! This subscription saves me time and more time. I can now stay on top of current trends and caselaw without giving up my weekends. Worth every penny and more! I was actually doing this for myself before I found out about Robin's publication. I spent hours and hours a week researching, printing and reading cases. I can't tell you how much easier it is to click and read. Again, can't live without this publication.

Angela McElroy Magruder, Esq.
Augusta, GA

Not only comprehensive and objective, but prompt and friendly service. Imagine getting any of that from West.

Dai Rosenblum, Esq.
Butler, PA

CBAR is a valuable resource for me in many ways, but two that are most significant. On the one hand, because of the organization style of Ms. Miller, it can be a quick review of bankruptcy movements around the country. On the other hand, the depth of Ms. Millerís analysis and insight combined with easy links to actual cases allows me to dig deeper when the issue applies to one of my clients.

Other reasons I will stay a subscriber include cost, ease of contact with Ms. Miller for questions or issues, the electronic nature of it, and I'm sure there are more.

I highly recommend CBAR for any bankruptcy attorney, but especially the solo practitioner or small firm that wants both quality and low cost in their initial legal research.

Chris Dutkiewicz, Esq.
Gilbert, AZ

I have subscribed to CBAR for over a year and gladly renewed for the second year. If you are serious about calling yourself a consumer bankruptcy attorney, then you need this subscription. CBAR helps raise your knowledge and awareness of the bankruptcy cases across the country and will help you be not only a better consumer bankruptcy attorney, but an expert on consumer bankruptcy law. You will be able to speak with authority about any relevant consumer bankruptcy issue. The CBAR subscription actually pays for itself. Consumer bankruptcy attorneys generally do not have the time to spend all day researching an issue and CBARís comprehensive research will let you effortlessly cite not one case but five or ten on an issue. Using CBAR for just one brief a year will pay for the subscription.

Thanks, Robin.

Greggory T. Colpitts, Esq.
Tulsa, OK

Consumer Bankruptcy Abstracts is great, great, great! You do an incredibly thorough job of digesting and profiling all the latest cases, enabling me to stay up to date. It is invaluable for getting a perspective as to how judges are interpreting and analyzing BAPCPA. Thanks for your hard work!

Craig D. Robins, Esq.
Woodbury, NY


Richard A. Rice, Esq.
Atlanta, GA

The information and case reviews we receive from CBAR and Robin Miller are invaluable to a firm focusing on consumer debt and bankruptcy issues. The ability to reduce the many bankruptcy and other related decisions across the country to a well-formatted and thoughtful review is a tool that I would never go without. I use the information in the topical and regular issues on a nearly every-day basis to better represent my clients and improve my practice and knowledge in the field.

Justin M. Gillman, Esq.
Edison, NJ

Staying current on bankruptcy law has never been easier. Your publication saves more time and is more detailed than anything else out there. Nothing else compares.

Joe Volin, Attorney at Law
Tempe, AZ

CBAR gives you the latest information in YOUR jurisdiction on the hot issues in consumer bankruptcy. It is a simple and inexpensive way to keep up without having to subscribe to Lexis or WestLaw.

Jeanne E. Hovenden, Esq.
Chesterfield, VA

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your service. It has been very helpful to me. My wife is a family law attorney thinking about transitioning to bankruptcy and your information is very helpful to me in teaching her the changes from BAPCPA (Bankruptcy Prevention and Creditor Protection Act!)

Larry Hirsch, Esq.
Scottsdale, AZ

I think this is my second issue since becoming a subscriber. What a great service you provide. This monthís abstract had a case from our district, no less, directly on point to an issue we have with a client which, after reading the abstract and opinion it became very clear that a trial was probably in our future. We have decided not to proceed as originally planned and this has save us a lot of time and our client a lot of money.

Thanks for a great service!

Sarah Little, Esq.
Hayward, CA

I just received another favorable opinion thanks to your research. The issue was allowing the deduction on the means test for property being surrendered in a Chapter 13. Your website led me to a case the Trustee had missed, which the Judge cited numerous times and I believe relied rather heavily upon in deciding the issue.

Marc A. Crum, Esq.
Harrisburg, PA

I often mention how important it is to "read, read, read" what is going on in the practice, particularly with all the next case developments. In 25 years of doing this stuff, I have never seen such a quantity of new cases.

I like the Consumer Bankruptcy Newsletter because the editor David Light is a great writer. However, in terms of getting a handle on the big picture, nothing beats the Bankruptcy Abstracts. I have been reading these things for the last six months. IT is clearly the way to go if you want to figure out the sneaky [stuff] going down around the country--techniques and tactics.

Stephen Berken, Esq.
Denver, CO

You have done a fantastic job with the Abstracts. My clients thank you as well, as I have been able to save them some money!

Kathryn Bergeron, Esq.
Clearwater, FL

Your Bankruptcy Abstracts is probably the most useful resource I get. I have been and will continue recommending it to everyone I know in the consumer bankruptcy world.

Peter Orville, Esq.
Binghamton, NY

I really enjoy your summaries. I find them so much more helpful than anything I have used in the past. Keep up the good work!

David Cox, Esq.
Cox Law Group
Lynchburg, VA

... the tremendous quality and modest cost of your publication ...

Kevin S. Garris, Esq.
Clearwater, FL

As I am sure you are already aware, you (and your staff) do a marvelous job with each Abstract. I am very satisfied with your service. Thanks and keep up the great work.

Alberto Carranza, Esq.
Chula Vista, CA

To paraphrase Lee Iacocca, "IF there is a better bankruptcy newsletter out there...buy it instead...."

Everett H. Mechem, Esq.
The Pope Firm
Kingsport, TN

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for this wonderful publication. I represent creditors in consumer bankruptcy cases and have found these abstracts to be extremely helpful. I'm not aware of any other publication that accomplishes as much in such a clear and concise manner. It's truly a wonderful tool for those who have little time to review all the opinions that are published each month. I would recommend this service to creditors, debtors and trustee alike.

Christopher M. Kerney, Esq.
Nashville, TN

The amount of information and the wonderful organization in the presentation of your service is most helpful to my practice. I look forward to each new issue. I would recommend this publication to any bankruptcy attorney.

William E. Campbell, Esq.
Lynn, MA

I LOVE your publications. I don't have time to compile all of the information myself, and your newsletter is an invaluable tool.

Margaret C. Valois, Attorney at Law
Virginia Bankruptcy Center
Lynchburg, VA

Your research guide saved me literally hours and hours of research and case gathering, and the case summaries included in the research guide further streamlined my research project. I will certainly take advantage of your offer to extend my subscription.

Bruce C. Truesdale, Esq.
Middlesex, NJ

I subscribe to several newsletters, but the advantage of the Abstracts is that it organizes the cases by topic, chapter and circuit in one place and ensures that I don't miss an important case. The research guides give me a real head start on briefs. Thanks for producing a great product!

Dorothy L. Mott, Esq.
Harrisburg, PA

As a new subscriber, I am amazed at the amount of information that you offer, as well as the organization of the materials. I cannot wait to dive into the older issues and build my BAPCPA knowledge. As we have been getting busier, I find myself having less time to research, your service is a blessing.

Thank you.

Carmen Dellutri, Esq.
The Dellutri Law Group, P.A.
Fort Myers, FL

I frequently lecture at local Bar Associations on bankruptcy topics and use this as my primary source to update my outline. I find it the best way to keep abreast of changes and emerging trends in the law.

Gregory Messer, Esq.
Brooklyn, NY

Your service is fantastic. I use Westlaw, but you find cases I have not found using that service. Moreover, you analyze/categorize the cases with a great deal of insight as to how the issues arise. Finally, I just used one of your research guides, WOW!

Stephen E. Schafer, Esq.
Columbus, OH

BAPCPA Abstracts is an invaluable resource for the consumer bankruptcy attorney.

Bob Jacquard, Esq.
Providence, RI
