If your bankruptcy case was filed in Los Angeles, your meeting of creditors will be held at the Office of the United States Trustee located at 725 S. Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA.
The building is on the corner of Figueroa Street at 7th Street directly opposite from the 7th Street / Metro Center Station.
One thing to note is that this is an office building, not a courthouse or other government building. There is no judge in the building, which houses private companies such as Ernst & Young.
If you want to get to the Los Angeles bankruptcy court, you’ll need to go to, 255 E Temple St #940, Los Angeles, CA 90012. That building is about 10 minutes away by car (assuming it’s not rush hour), closer to Union Station.
Every meeting of creditors in Los Angeles is located at the lobby level in Room 101. It’s actually a series of rooms, so you don’t need to worry about being crammed into a small space with the thousands of others who are filing for bankruptcy. When you walk in the front door of the building, just look to your right side and you’ll see the frosted glass doors.
There are public parking lots located on Figueroa, 8th and 9th. Remember to bring cash to pay for parking. If you’re smart, however, you should take the Metro to the 7th Street / Metro Center Station. Grab a cup of coffee at Starbucks downstairs and relax before you go into the meeting.
Here’s a map of the building where the meeting of creditors is held in Los Angeles:
Once you’re done with your meeting of creditors (the wait is long, but the actual meeting takes about 5 minutes) you can grab lunch, take a walk, or just enjoy the day. Luckily, this is a part of Los Angeles that’s in rapid transition, and there’s quite a bit of foot traffic during the day.
