How bankruptcy affects attorneys

By: Darrell Castle

Did you know that Chapter 13 bankruptcy was developed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1978? There aren’t many better people to discuss its development with than longtime Chattanooga Chapter 13 Trustee, Ken Still. 


The National Association of Chapter 13 Trustees Quarterly did an interview recently with Still. In Still’s closing remarks, he summed up not only how bankruptcy has affected the clients’ lives, but his as well:


“I look forward to every day that I come to work. It is and has been a great challenge and a satisfying job. But it has been much more than a job, it has been an opportunity to assist thousands of people in dealing with their financial problems. And what more can we ask but to heed Jesus’s words, ‘inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of those my brethren, you have done it unto me.’ I could have not asked for more. I have always felt that God has a place for each of us and if we manage to find our place we will be happy and content. I found my place.”


This is a beautiful quote from Still, and I have to agree with him – I have found my place too.
