You are deciding whether to file bankruptcy and may have heard about working with a bankruptcy trustee in Idaho. The primary role of the trustee is to be a “watchdog” for the bankruptcy process. In fact, the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy trustees helped manage all of the 2,347 bankruptcy filings in Idaho for the year ending June 30, 2021.

  1. Appointing and supervising private trustees.
  2. Taking legal action to prevent fraud and abuse.
  3. Referring matters for criminal investigation when appropriate.
