What is a bankruptcy Trustee? 

United States Trustee is the “watchdog over the bankruptcy process”. The United States Trustee’s mission is to promote integrity and efficiency in the bankruptcy system by enforcing bankruptcy laws. They oversee the private trustees who are appointed to administer bankruptcy filings. They also investigate bankruptcy fraud. When you file a bankruptcy petition, a bankruptcy trustee will review your case and will be able to ask you questions at the First Meeting of Creditors (341 Meeting).
