What Does a Bankruptcy Trustee Do?

Relieving Your Stress About Bankruptcy Proceedings

If you choose to file bankruptcy, the court will appoint an impartial person to serve as bankruptcy trustee and oversee the process. The trustee’s main job is to make sure that your bankruptcy filing has been prepared correctly and that the proper procedures are followed.

At the Atlanta metro area law firm of Gingold & Gingold LLC, we have a great deal of insight into the role of the bankruptcy trustee, because one of our partners, Ira D. Gingold, has been both a bankruptcy attorney since 1971 and Court-appointed Bankruptcy Trustee from 1971-2013.

Understanding the Role of the Court-Appointed Trustee

Since the bankruptcy trustee’s main job is to make sure all paperwork is filed properly, the best way to avoid any trouble with the trustee is to hire an experienced attorney who will make sure that you take all the right steps and that your filing is complete and accurate.

  • If you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy , the trustee holds a single meeting to confirm that your bankruptcy petition discloses all of your debts and assets. Your attorney will appear with you at this meeting.
  • If you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy , the trustee will make sure your repayment plan meets the legal requirements and then collect and distribute your monthly payments to your creditors. Your attorney will appear with you at this meeting.

Most people who file bankruptcy meet the trustee only once, and the meeting is usually over within minutes. Your lawyer will be there to guide and advise you.

They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
