  • Assist with appellate matters arising in the Region and district;
  • Advise and partner with the Executive Office and the United States Trustee on policy questions and legal issues of national importance arising in cases to enhance the Program’s mission locally, and help develop and implement policies and strategies designed to faithfully execute a uniform application of bankruptcy law;
  • Supervise private trustees in the Region who administer bankruptcy cases filed under chapter 7, 13, and 12 of the Bankruptcy Code;
