NextChapter Software – the best bankruptcy software!

This isn’t the typical substantive bk news I share but I recently started my own practice in Glendale and spent hours looking at different bankruptcy petition preparing software – Bestcase, CINCompass, etc.  Then I stumbled upon NextChapter when setting up my practice management software, Clio.  On Clio, there was a feature where you can sync your practice management software with NextChapter (that in itself is unheard of because I said to myself “great, the two softwares will “talk” to each other!)   So I looked into NextChapter and I was absolutely blown away!

No, I am not a paid spokesperson but I promised the CEO/Founder, a wonderful young women, that I would help spread the word about her amazing software.  Their customer service is amazing and their software is unmatched (plus it is much more affordable than the clunky competitors).  Here’s a link – https://nextchapterbk.com/

Email from Mark Marcus

It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my close friend, mentor and colleague Steve Schwaber passed away last night.

Steve had surgery for bladder cancer on Friday and returned home that evening and seemed to be in good spirits.  We do not know the exact cause of death and memorial services have not been coordinated yet.

Steve was an active member of this and other listserves, as well as the ABI and the bankruptcy community for several decades.  We will all miss his insight, wit and professionalism.

Sincerely,

Mark
