Riverside Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee

Arturo M. Cisneros

3403 Tenth Street, Suite 711

Riverside, CA 92501

Phone: (951) 328-3124


Mr. Cisneros has been a Chapter 7 Trustee in Riverside, California for many years. He has the reputation as the “fastest trustee” in the Division. In the old days, he could get through a half hour calendar of 15 cases in about 20 minutes.

The times have changed and now he is scheduled 15 cases for an entire hour and to fill the time he schedules his continued cases for the half hour.

Mr. Cisneros is efficient and an excellent time manager. There is no wasted movement or time with him and his staff.  Everything that he does is for a well thought out reason so that he can maximize his time at the hearings.

Mr. Cisneros is a stickler for having the tax returns sent to him at least 7 days in advance of the hearings.  If the tax returns are not provided 7 days prior to the hearing, then he will ask the Attorney why the return has not been provided?  The Riverside Chapter 7 Trustee Arturo Cisneros will then ask the attorney for a copy of the tax return and tell the attorney and the client, that he will trail the matter until he has time to review the tax returns.  Or if the attorney does not have a copy of the tax return, he will ask the client to go home and come back with a copy of the  tax return.

In either case, it is highly embarrassing for the attorney to have his clients wait for the Chapter 7 Trustee to review the tax returns.

Practice Pointer:

Send the Tax return to Mr. Cisneros at least three weeks before the hearing to avoid problems at the Riverside Meeting of Creditors.

Something you might not know about Mr. Cisneros…

Before he became a Chapter 7 Trustee, Mr. Cisneros was a staff attorney for the Riverside Chapter 13 Trutsee. So Mr. Cisneros knows both sides of the consumer practice very well.
