Who Are the Chapter 7 Panel Trustees in the Northern District of Georgia?

17 Oct Who Are the Chapter 7 Panel Trustees in the Northern District of Georgia?

There are 28 individuals on the Chapter 7 panel in the Northern District of Georgia.  Several of these trustees are assigned cases only in the divisional offices – Rome, Gainesville or Newnan.

The Atlanta trustees typically appear on two to six hearing calendars a month.   All but one of the Northern District panel trustees are attorneys.

Unlike the Northern District of Georgia Chapter 13 trustees, the Chapter 7 panel trustees handle trustee duties on a part time basis.  All of the Chapter 7 trustees on the Northern District panel maintain their own law practices or businesses.

Chapter 7 cases are classified as either “asset cases” or “no asset cases.”   An “asset” case is one in which the trustee identifies non-exempt real or personal property that he can sell for the benefit of the bankruptcy estate.  In a “no asset” case there are no assets for the trustee to administer.

In no asset cases, the trustee is paid a flat fee of $60.  If the Chapter 7 trustee can identify assets to liquidate he is paid a percentage of the assets distributed to creditors.   You can read more about Chapter 7 trustees at the National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees website.
