My friend and fellow bankruptcy lawyer David Leibowitz who practices in Illinois and Wisconsin has a very helpful post titled “Who is the United States Trustee?” where he really does a nice job of explaining it all.
The main point is that the trustee is not a judge, but he or she makes decisions that can have a significant impact on your bankruptcy case. If you’re thinking about filing for bankruptcy, I strongly recommend reading the whole post (which isn’t very long) for the full explanation.

- Who Are Your New York Chapter 13 Trustees?
- What will happen at my 341 meeting of creditors in New York?
