I am pleased to announce that my book, Student Loan Debt 101: The Definitive Guide to Understanding and Managing Your Student Loans, has been re-published to reflect recent changes in student loan law. This second edition contains critical new updates about federal student loan repayment plans, forgiveness programs, and federal default resolution programs.
I am thrilled to announce that the Law Office of Adam S. Minsky has found a new home in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.
My new office is at 129 Newbury Street (4th Floor). The building is conveniently located near public transportation and parking facilities, and it is also walking-distance from many of the city’s major neighborhoods. I’m looking forward to providing student loan legal services in Copley Square, one of my favorite spots in Boston!
For correspondence purposes, my new office mailing address is now:
Law Office of Adam S. Minsky
P.O. Box 340
Brookline, MA 02446
All of my other contact information (including e-mail, phone, and fax) is remaining the same.
I am thrilled to be the lead presenter tomorrow at the National Consumer Law Center’s webinar, “Federal Student Loan Repayment Options and Default Resolution.”
Tune in on Wednesday, June 24 at 2:00pm for an overview of options available to borrowers to repay their federal student loans and get out of default. The webinar is FREE and open to the public.
I am thrilled to be a featured panelist next week at the Boston Bar Association’s seminar, “Student Loan Debt and Bankruptcy: Addressing the Problem and Finding Solutions.”
The program will be held at the Boston Bar Association on Friday, April 10. It will explore the scope and magnitude of the looming student loan debt crisis, and I’ll be discussing administrative avenues of relief for borrowers outside of the Bankruptcy Code.
Speaking of the student loan debt crisis, the Corinthian College student loan “debt strike” has been getting increasing national media attention. Check out my recent interviews with The Washington Post and Vice.com.
I am thrilled to announce the publication of my next book, “The Student Loan Guide for Parents and Cosigners,” now available in paperback and Kindle formats.
As many of you might know, student loan debt doesn’t just impact students. Each year, parents take out millions of dollars in Parent PLUS loans to finance their child’s college education. And millions of relatives, spouses, friends, and acquaintances of students cosign private student loans. Federal Parent PLUS loans and cosigned private student loans are very different from other types of student loan debt, and parents and cosigners often do not fully understand their rights or their options, especially when things go wrong. And there are minimal resources out there to help them.
That’s why I wrote this book.
When I first started my student loan law practice, I thought that all of my clients would be recent graduates in their 20’s or 30’s, trying to understand and navigate their student loan repayment. But at this point, I estimate that over one third of my clients at any given time are parents and cosigners. To me, this says a lot about the student debt crisis.
I hope this book will be helpful to some people, and I hope some of you will take the time to read it.
Big news here at the Law Office of Adam S. Minsky. To better serve my clients, I’ve moved to a new office location in downtown Boston. Please take note of my new office address. I’m now located about halfway between Haymarket Station and North Station, very near Government Center, the West End, and the North End of Boston.
And, as you can see, I’ve also had my website completely rebuilt from the ground up! Please take some time and explore the new site and design.
More big news is coming soon, so stay tuned…
And for those of you who have been following my blog, I am back in town after a brief hiatus and will resume blogging next week. Stay tuned!
I will be out of the office until the week of October 20, 2014. Unfortunately, I won’t be posting articles on my blog while I’m gone!
If you are interested in hiring me as your student loan attorney, please email me a description of your legal issue at email@example.com and I will respond as soon as I can when I’m back in the office.
If you are in need of immediate legal assistance, please contact the National Association of Consumer Advocates (www.naca.net) or your state bar association for a referral.
In this podcast I discuss some the peculiarities and absurdities about student loan debt, how people get into trouble with their student loans, and how people can get out of it. Check it out here!
On July 29, 2014, I presented a three hour talk on student loan law in a Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education Seminar. It was an honor to be selected as an expert in the field. If you missed the seminar, there’s still time to purchase the re-broadcasted webcast, which will be available on August 5.
