What or who is the U.S. trustee?

Our Professional Answer

At every bankruptcy court, there is an office of the United States Trustee. The U.S. Trustee program is staffed by lawyers from the justice department. Their job is to look over every case and ensure that the case and the debtors comply with the bankruptcy code. In the court, the United States Trustee is an impartial participant who is there to ensure that the United States is treated fairly, meaning the United States laws are followed.
