Our Purpose

The United States Standing Bankruptcy Trustee is an independent third party charged with overseeing and ensuring the repayment of debts to secured and unsecured creditors, as well as governmental agencies or bodies.


The Trustee does not represent the debtor. As a result, by Federal law, this office is barred from giving legal advice of any kind.
