Opinión de la Comisión-Personal & Small Derecho Concursal del Colegio de Abogados del Estado de California, 1996-2000

MR. BAYER DICE: Los grandes bancos y de los companys de tarjetas de crédito han estado trabajando horas extras durante muchos años para vulnerar el derecho constitucional que del pueblo estadounidense para que pueda reclamar la protección de bancarrota. En 2005, el lobby bancario logró convencer al Congreso y al Presidente que hacen las leyes y proceedures más complicado, hopeing que va a obstaculizar las personas que sí que la declaración de quiebra. Tuvieron éxito en la obtención de estos nuevos y complejos proceedures legales por engrasar el sistema legislativo con cientos de millones de dólares en contribuciones de campaña "." La buena noticia para el pueblo estadounidense es que mientras que las nuevas leyes han hecho los proceedures innecesariamente complejas hasta el punto donde la gente sin experiencia no puede dejar de tropezar con el laberinto de las nuevas normas y reglamentos, el proceso es aún factible, especialmente con un abogado que está bien entrenado y con experiencia en esta especialidad.

MR. BAYER SAYS: The big banks and credit card companys have been working overtime for many years to undermine the Consitutional right of the American people to be able to claim bankruptcy protection. In 2005 the banking lobby successfully convinced Congress and the President to make the laws and proceedures more complicated, hopeing that it will stymie legitimate people from filing bankruptcy. They succeeded in gaining these complex new legal proceedures by greasing the legislative system with hundreds of millions of dollars in "campaign contributions." The good news for the American people is that while the new laws have made the proceedures needlessly complex to the point where inexperienced people can't help but trip over the maze of new rules and regulations, the process is still doable, especially with a lawyer who is well trained and experienced in this specialty.

Past/Present Clients

I have probably handled something on the order of about 15,000 bankruptcy cases throughout my career. Probablemente he manejado algo del orden de alrededor de 15.000 casos de quiebra en toda mi carrera.

What do you like about this subject?


MR. BAYER SAYS: The practice of bankruptcy law is extremely satisfying. I know of no other area of law where so much good can be accomplished so rapidly for a client. In most cases we are able to quickly solve problems that have kept our clients sick and sleepless with worry and fear.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?


MR. BAYER SAYS: Over the past 26 years I have actually helped about 10,000 people overcome a personal debt crisis. I have seen the emotional damage that debt problems cause in someone's life. I have seen how often debt problems can affect everything else in your world, sometimes ruining marriages and careers because of the stress.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:


MR. BAYER SAYS: Bankruptcy law is ancient. The oldest record of a bankruptcy case was left on a clay tablet from ancient Babylon, written about 3000 years ago! Abraham Lincoln, in the years before he became president, handled many bankruptcy cases as a regular part of his law practice. The right to claim bankruptcy relief is imbedded in the U.S. Constitution, in Article 1, Section 8.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject


MR. BAYER SAYS: The big banks and credit card companys have been working overtime for many years to undermine the Consitutional right of the American people to be able to claim bankruptcy protection.
