Cathy Moran Oral History (and Happy Birthday Cathy)

It will always be one of the highlights of my business life that when I asked Cathy Moran if she would let me do her oral history, she said yes.  We met for two hours, two days in a row, at her office near San Jose, discussing her life and of course her views of the bankruptcy world and consumer bankruptcy practices.  She has a lot to say and every consumer bankruptcy attorney should listen to her.  We talked about her early days growing up on a farm in central California, helping her farm animal veterinarian father in his business, even helping him with surgeries here and there.  She went to Stanford undergrad and later Hastings Law school.  But it’s her comments on the practice of bankruptcy, 40 years worth, especially chapter 13, that people should listen to.  The audio of the oral history can be accessed here from the website of the Biddle Law Library of the University of Pennsylvania Law School.  Scroll down to find hers.  Listen to it on one of your walks.  The Biddle Law Library has had it transcribed but has not uploaded that yet.   Let me know what you think.

Her blogs, if you haven’t checked them out, are here and here.

By the way, Happy Birthday Cathy.  Keep yourself well.
