Ok, you are getting a fresh start on your financial situation and have filed for bankruptcy. One of the major players that you are going to be interacting with is a bankruptcy trustee. A bankruptcy trustee is a lawyer assigned to oversee your bankruptcy case. Their role in the case differs as to whether your bankruptcy case is Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
During the bankruptcy process, you will see a bankruptcy trustee. This is a court appointed attorney that will oversee your bankruptcy case - this is not your attorney. The exact involvement and role that they will play depends on the type of bankruptcy case you file, either Chapter 7 or 13.
