Attorney John Dunlap Publishes Book on Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy in Western Tennessee but is often misunderstood by those who may need to file for bankruptcy. Attorney John E Dunlap has published a new book for people with no or little legal background, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in the Western District of Tennessee, to help them better understand Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing. The book is available for purchase on Amazon as both a paperback and Kindle book.

Dunlap’s book covers topics including:

  • Whether or not filing bankruptcy is a good option
  • The difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13
  • The best option for each person
  • Documents and information needed to prepare for filing the case
  • How various creditors are dealt with in a Chapter 13 plan
  • How payments to the Trustee is calculated
  • The consequences of filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy

While not a replacement for working with a bankruptcy attorney, book is a great resource for those seeking to learn more about Chapter 13 bankruptcy and to help them have better informed discussions about their unique situation.

In a review from Readers’ Favorite, reviewer Jack Magnus writes:

While the book is focused upon the Western District of Tennessee, it goes a long way toward helping consumers in any state decide if bankruptcy is the right option for them and, if so, whether to opt for Chapter 13 or Chapter 7. Dunlap goes into his subject in some depth, and he demystifies some rather frightening aspects of the proceeding, including the Meeting of Creditors. What he doesn’t do, which is a very good thing, is give the reader any sense that he should file on his own; rather, Dunlap gives the reader the necessary information to make a selection of bankruptcy type and lists the documents one should bring when having a consultation with an attorney. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in the Western District of Tennessee is most highly recommended. (emphasis added)
