Bankruptcy Judge Wesley Steen retired, effective January 17, 2011, from his position as Bankruptcy Judge for the Southern District of Texas. He was my judge in Victoria, Texas and one of my judges in Houston. Judge Steen was also the bankruptcy judge in Laredo, Texas. He came aboard in 1997 and served our district for fourteen years. During his tenure, he was also elected the first sitting judge to also serve as President of the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI). Judge Steen was also the former Chief Judge for Bankruptcy Court for both the Southern Disrict of Texas and Middle District of Louisiana. He will be sorely missed by our bankruptcy bar Happy Retirement Judge Steen!
On a sad note, the consumer bankruptcy bar lost a long-time friend and champion for bankruptcy debtors – Charlie Fielder, President of LegalPro on February 4, 2011. Charlie was a leader in his field – leading the way in bankruptcy software for the debtor’s bar. He made our life as bankruptcy attorneys much easier by always being on top of the changes in law and forms. Charlie was one of the kindest, gentlest men I ever know. Charlie, we will miss you – but know that you are safe in God’s loving hands. Rest in peace, my dear friend.
