Richard S. Schmidt

Are you looking for a trustee to assist with your bankruptcy case? Look no further than me. I am a retired federal judge based in Corpus Christi, Texas, offering services as a bankruptcy fiduciary, consultant, as well as a mediator and arbitrator throughout the United States.

I served 28 years on the Southern District of Texas bench, becoming one of the nation's most distinguished bankruptcy judges.

I am best known for my user-friendly judicial temperament, ability to quickly recognize intricate legal issues, legendary mathematical ability, and case management style, which helped navigate some of the largest and most complex bankruptcies in the country. What sets me apart is the vast number of cases I have handled successfully, along with my leadership and organizational skills.

Because I was a judge, I have no conflicts. Unlike a lot of lawyers who do the same kind of work, I have no ulterior motive, making me an excellent person to mediate or consult with on your case. My credentials are outstanding, as is my reputation for being independent and ethically strong. Contact me today for more information or to book an appointment.
