Who Are Your New York Chapter 13 Trustees?

A lot of New York readers may not know who their own Congressional representatives are in Washington, D.C.  And perhaps as few know the state legislator from their district.  But I’m willing to bet that almost no readers know who the Chapter 13 trustees are for their district in New York.  So I’ve listed them below for your benefit.

First, a few things about the Chapter 13 Trustee.  As you’ll see below, there are one or two individuals appointed to serve as Chapter 13 Trustees for each court district.  This is unlike Chapter 7 trustees or Chapter 11 trustees who are members of a panel and selected at random for each case.

Chapter 13 Trustees are in fact private practice attorneys.  They are not government employees.  And the one or two Chapter 13 trustees for each district handle all of the Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases that are filed in their district.

And now, here are your New York state Chapter 13 Trustees.  (FYI, a complete state-by-state list of Chapter 13 trustees can be found at

How Can a Debtor (or Creditor) Get a New Trustee?
