Information for residents of Bergen County who are considering bankruptcy:

Bergen County Bankruptcy Cases, Judges and Trustees

I file cases in and for Bergen County.   The Bankruptcy Court in New Jersey is split into three parts or vicinages.  Bergen County cases are heard in the Bankruptcy Court located in Newark, New Jersey.   Trustee meetings or meetings of creditors for Bergen County are also held in Newark, at One Newark Center, on the corner of Raymond Boulevard and Route 21.

The Bankruptcy Judges who handle cases for Bergen County are Judges Gambardella, Steckroth, Stern and Winfield.   However, in the majority of Chapter 7 cases, you never see a judge. 

If you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your case will be referred to a panel of Bankruptcy Trustees, and one of the Trustees from the panel will be assigned to your case.  Once on a case, the Trustee will be responsible for that case until the case is over, the Trustee files a final report, and the judge releases him or her from the case.   Some of the trustees have their own bankruptcy practices and can even file cases for other debtors, but they cannot hear their own cases. 

If you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Bergen County, your case is assigned the the Bankruptcy Trustee for the Newark vicinage.  There only one trustee - her name is Marie-Ann Greenberg.  She or one of the assistants from her office will conduct your meeting of creditors. 

Marvin Wolf files bankruptcy cases in Bergen County.  He files Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases, and on rare occasions, Chapter 11 cases.  Marvin Wolf is a debt relief attorney and also practices consumer law and foreclosure defense.   He coaches clients in debt settlement, when appropriate.

release what he has lent to his neighbor. He shall not exact it of his neighbor, his brother, because the Lord's release has been proclaimed.
