Dauval Named Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee


After a career spent representing the people and companies that need to file bankruptcy, Richard Dauval has decided to sit on the other side of the table. A little over a year ago, Dauval was appointed to the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee Panel for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division. There are 17 trustees who sit on the panel, and between them, they administer all of the 3,000 Chapter 7 cases that are filed annually in the Tampa Division. See Trustee Locator

Dauval was apprehensive about administering cases against his colleagues but stated that the transition has not been as awkward as he first anticipated. Read Richard's Bio

“Sure, it’s strange. After all those years sitting in Court with your fellow Debtor lawyers, all of a sudden you are pitted against each other.” 

Dauval has spent the past year “learning how to do [his] job all over again,” but says he is very happy with his decision and excited for the future.
